    bootable you need to add a boot sector. Are we talking bootable or autorun though? Because bootable you also need something to execute. Autorun you just need an autorun.inf file.

    Hi,

    ImgBurn since v2.2.0.0 I think can now create .ISO files.

    You can load a boot sector then add your wanted files.

    Next time someone burns that .ISO it will be bootable.

    I need to boot to DOS (Command Prompt) since I use GHOST to clone some PCs.

    All my images are bootable using the Windows 98 SE Startup Disk.

    Load the CDROM Drivers, then I have access to all the stuff on the CD/DVD media.

    Could also use Windows PE/XPE and run ghost from there. Can also browse the Internet, etc. whilst it is imaging.
