Full Version: Unbootable Iso's With Cd Shell V2.1.6
The CD Forum > CD Shell and Boot Scriptor > Troubleshooting & Problems
I am using CD Shell v2.0b and can create a properly bootable disk. I want to start using CD Shell v2.1.6 mainly to get with the times.

The only items I changed in my root structure was
- remove existing boot folder containing CD Shell v2.0b and it's modules.
- added boot folder from CD Shell v2.1.6 and copied by cdshell.ini file, and generated the iso with following parameters using mkisofs version (i686-pc-mingw32).
mkisofs.exe -iso-level 4 -duplicates-once -force-uppercase -J -joliet-long -V "PowerXP SLAX" -A "CD-SHELL/MKISOFS" -sysid "Win32" -N -nobak -eltorito-boot boot/loader.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -hide boot/loader.bin -o C:\SRCD.iso "F:\Project\cd_shell"

Once the ISO was generated I tested it in VMware and received "Error booting from CD/DVD drive." message with an error code of 808003F9. If I undo the change of boot folder and regenerate the iso, all works well both in VMware and off cd.

Any help in upgrading/migrating to CD Shell v2.1.6 would be greatly appreciated.
CD Shell V2.1.6 support ISO9660:1999. Case is importand.

CD Shell V2.1.6 expect lower case names.

Uppercase needed parts at hard disk first.
Don't use -force-uppercase next.
Yeah, I think i'll settle with CD Shell v2.1.4 instead of mucking around too much with filecase. Thanks for you suggestion none the less.
