ISO to Zipdisk


Generally Random
Exactly what it says in the title really, I'm after some tech advice.

I'm trying to find a way of getting a 31mb debian netinst ISO image onto a zipdisk so i can boot another boxen to install it.

Standard CD burning software doesnt seem to be cutting it. Any ideas? :confused:

nope i dont, i think i'm probly the last person who doesn't. i can't see any reason why not, if the mobo supports booting from zipdisk, just wondered if you could ^_^
use winimage to extract the ISO's contents to the zip disk? as far as getting it to boot, that'd be a bit more interesting, as I'm not sure it could/would read the boot record in the ISO properly. I normally use daemon tools to open ISO's, but that mounts them as a virtual CD ROM drive


Debiant by way of Ubuntu

I have a Knoppix image that'll boot from any device - pretty sure if bios permit then that could be zip drive .... but the questioj in my mind is - why?

the only reason i wondered was because i didn't want to steal a CD from any of my Cd-Burner owning housemates. Seems it's more difficult than not so i'll get someone else to burn it.

thanks anyway ^_^

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
