mkisofs: Uh oh, I cant find the boot image 'boot/loader.bin'

#1 Post by 1967GTO9 » Thu Mar 30, 2006 9:32 am

When executing the mkubcd.bat file, I consistently get the following error: mkisofs: Uh oh, I cant find the boot image 'boot/loader.bin' !

I scanned all the forum postings to no avail; have tried a lot of things but still get the same error. Has anybody else seen this?

Using Windows Explorer or equivalent, can you find the file loader.bin under the bin subdirectory? If not, can you find it on your CD or ISO image?

The "loader.bin" file is in the path: C:\UBCD\BOOT\LOADER.BIN.
This is where the extraction engine put it----I did not change the folder order etc. of C:\UBCD.

Is the filename uppercase, or did you type them that way? I think it needs to be lowercase in order to work. mkisofs is case-sensitive.

No, I did not change MKUBCD.BAT at all. Following is the syntax of MKUBCD.BAT as it was extracted: mkisofs -N -J -joliet -long -D -V "UBCD" -o /ubcd34.iso -b boot/loader.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 .
The previous mkisofs.exe dated 4/26/2001 (339 KB in size) worked OK for me for a long time. This latest version of mkisofs.exe dated 10/11/2004 (126 KB in size) has yet to work for me.

When I extracted the iso with ISO Buster, it capitalized all the directories and filenames. I had to change the batch file to say BOOT/LOADER.BIN in all caps. Hope this helps!
