How to create a bootable CD?

Post by Doug Ack » Thu, 01 Jul 1993 04:57:47

We've got this dandy Young Minds CD Mastering System so we can make our own

We want to know is how to copy CD's and how to create a bootable CDROM.

We want to know this information so we can make a copy of CD's the vendors
send us a single copy for archive purposes and to embed SUNOS into our own
install disk for our products (all of our machines already have a SUNOS

For a tape we could do a dd .. how would we do this with a CD?

1. CD-R devices and creating bootable cds

    I have a Philips CDD 2600 connected to a Solaris 2.5.1 box, and I
    have a need to construct a bootable Unix CD with several partitions
    on it.

    I've created CDs using the free utilities "cdrecord" and "mkisofs"
    before, but I can't seem to be able to figure out how to do what I
    want with these tools in this case.

    So, I guess these are my questions:

        1. Can I make a bootable CD with cdrecord?  Can I make a CD that
           solaris will see as having several partitions with cdrecord?

        2. If not, are there other free utilities out there that will do
           what I want?

        3. If not, is there something commercial that will get the job

    Thanks in advance for any light you guys can shed on this subject.
