EasyBoot does not support booting ISO image directly, you can do it this way:
1) Open the ISO image by UltraISO
- Press F4 to extract all files and folders to c:\easyboot\disk1
- Choose 'Bootable'->'Save boot file' to extract boot image from the ISO, save it as 'c:\easyboot\disk1\ezboot\xxx.bif'
2) Use 'run xxx.bif' as command to load it.

Note 1: For ISOLINUX-based systems (including Acronis products), please use 'bootinfotable;run xxx.bif' to avoid checksum errors.
Note 2: If the boot file (.BIF) is large than 2.88MB, please refer to THIS TOPIC.

Hello,
I understand that at this moment, EasyBoot cannot boot an packed ISO-image.
All the files need to be unpacked into the folder 'c:\easyboot\disk1'
But if one would have 4 or 5 not too big CD's, which are booting individualy, and all the files would have to be extracted into 'c:\easyboot\disk1', this would make it rather complicated to keep organized.
Booting from an ISO-imagefile, with the correct xxx.bif would be a great help.
Thnks
Fred

yea create a(n) bootable image file such as a bin,img,ima,etc... and place it in your ezboot directory and  use the run xxx.zzz command to do it thats what im doing :) (xxx=filename and zzz=the file extension like bin,img,ima,etc...)

I do not see complications in this one... how many bootable Data can a cd hold? not more then 20 Images (Bin,Img,Ima,Bif) so, whats so complex? Its basically a boot Manager! It makes it easy in all ways still you guys find it hard ??? If you guys know UltraISO and EZBoot well then you wouldn't feel any complications  :D
