Creating BT3 DVD
Has anyone tried to create a DVD from the USB/DVD copy?
I am wondering how this can be made.
[Been waiting for this for months .... finally see some light now Thanks!!]
Use the script make_iso.sh located in the BT3 directory to make an ISO. See "Adding modules to BackTrack in Linux" in the BackTrack Wiki for an example (bottom of that page).
i read that guide but i still dont get it tho. its shown how to do it if u already in bt. Im in windows. How do i load all those files? do i run that in dos or what? im so lost right now. I never had problems booting from iso using vmware. But this is different... its just bunch of files. I dont get it how can i create a bootable .iso. Anyone? i kno i sound mad lame but i tried even makin bootable iso with nero. Seemed fine.. but when i loaded that iso in vmware got error... cannot boot cd code 5 or something like that. Its so frustrating :|
edit: finally got it ... was using make_iso.bat and pressing enter in cmd instead of make_iso.bat c:\bt.iso ...
(He was doing that under windows - .BAT are Windows Batch files, the equivalent of a Linux .BIN file)
I changed the line in the make_iso.bat but I get another problem:
mkisofs 2.01 (i686-pc-cygwin)
BT3/tools/WIN/mkisofs: Missing pathspec.
Usage: mkisofs [options] file...
Use mkisofs -help
to get a list of valid options.
New ISO should be created now.
Press any key to continue . . .
Works like a charm!

I've just tried this and as far as the tools go there doesn't seem to be any difference. There is just a few 'experimental' UI's.
anyone know what an "ML Disk" is? Nero has no idea wtf the BT3.iso is at all. I was using the CDROM version - is there really a big difference between the two? And is there a way I can make the BT3.iso something compatible with Nero? - thanks - trev.
Well, the BackTrack 3 ISO should be compatible with Nero anyway, as long as you've verified that the MD5 or SHA1 sums are the same, and if you have, your Nero is probably playing up on you. Easiest way to burn an ISO, just download this portable application: Active@ISO Burner and that should do the trick.
