Topic: create bootable dvd with files from disk

Posted by spidey8205 on Sep. 20 2005,11:58I had a technet bootable dvd with vista on it. Someone lost it. I copied the files over to the network before the guy lost it.
I want to now create a bootable dvd such as xp or whatever where you can choose to boot from the cd.
How can I do this? It is such a nightmare, the guy lost it and now I am stuck here with just the files.
Posted by xoben on Sep. 20 2005,21:06Please do it this way:
1) Download the addtached ZIP file, and extract vista.bif from it
2) Start UltraISO, choose 'New'->'Bootable CD/DVD' from main menu, and specify vista.bif as boot file
3) Darg & drop all files and folders to image area (uppler panel)
4) Save to an ISO image and press F7 to burn
Posted by spidey on Sep. 20 2005,21:11thanks alot. so this is the missing boot image file I need? Also, I read a post about vista needing some patch for the install? Any idea? And this can't be installed from the network either using a network boot disk?

Yes. It is extracted from bootable DVD of vista build 5219 .
If a previous beta version is present in your computer, you may need a patch to remove the 30 day trial limitation. I am sorry that no suggetion for this issue will be provided.
Please find detailed information from help file of windows vista.
