I made earlier thread Getting most of XP SP3
and one of suggestions was to use nLite application (read this post)
So, I rebooted to Windows 7. Downloaded nLite and started "stripping down functions etc" when it (nLite) finished I rebooted in Xubuntu to try install my new XP.
Then I found out that nLite didn't make an .iso file instead some folders and files (which would be inside .iso file).
Now I need to make an .iso file from folder (which contains all necessary files).
So I googled & asked in #xubuntu channel in IRC. I found following:
Also found this thread (2011 March): Creating an ISO from a VIDEO_TS directory
And some others (didn't really find answer to my issue):
- making a bootable DVD from non ISO file?
- creating bootable ISO image
- Compressed folder -> ISO for BIOS flash???
I concluded that I have 2 options:
- Terminal - "genisoimage" command
Guy called Sysi (in IRC) provided me with this guide --->
Using Xfburn to Create ISO Images (Xfce)
I tried it. I think I found a bug, read what happened in last 4 times --->
Presse "Add" 'nLite XP' directory, there was small window named "Adding files to th.." in bottom there was bar which slowly added megabytes when it got to ~170 or so MB, that bar flashed (very fast) to 215.22 MB (folder is 215.6MB big)
This time in bottom bar megabytes were counting faster. But around 176MB window "Adding files to th" closed and that all...
So, I File > Close composition & New Data composition
something weird happened - Xfburn just closed.. I had to open it again.
3rd try: Around 175MB bottom screen (bar) flashes (very fast) and it says again 215.22MB
Also it was like Xfburn was still loading something at bottom bar (215.22MB screen) wasn't static (meaning it moved constantly; that's why I say "still loading")
4rd try: Around 50MB Xfburn just closes and nothing happens.
So definitely something is wrong (bug?). I just can't make an .iso with Xfburn that way...
And if so, it's a bug, how can I file one? Where? What info I need to provide?
Can someone explain how one test and file bug?
(want to slowly get involved helping too)
Also I still need to create that .iso file, so I could try to install that XP on Virtual Box.
I could try meanwhile to use "genisoimage" command in terminal, but need some help with that.
and got almost 2000 lines of manualCode:man genisoimage
A bit too much for me..

Need some help guys
P.S. If you didn't understand something (especially those 4 tries with Xfburn) - just ask. I will try to explain it better.
This guy explained it very good --->
