running .bif files in UBCD

#1 Post by Markus » Fri Mar 27, 2009 1:59 pm

Greetings,

I want to add a .bif file to ubcd. Its in the custom folder:

/custom/app1/myapp.bif

So what is the correct syntax for loading this file in isolinux?

LABEL -
MENU LABEL My App
KERNEL ?
APPEND ?

Any help would be so appreciated.

Code: Select all

Files with the extension .BIF are 'boot information' files associated with 'MagicISO' a powerful CD/DVD image file creating / editing / extracting tool.

.BIF files contain extracted boot information from a bootable CD/DVD.

A disk image is a single file that replicates the complete contents and structure of a data storage medium or device, such as CD or DVD.


Stupid proprietary formats...geez.

You will have to extract the data...as isolinux,syslinux, and even grub, as of now, will NOT boot custom images...and only certain .img/.iso formats.
Please extract the contents and write a list of the contents here so icecube can further assist you.
