I really havnt played with compiling images. I am trying to burn a ERD commander CD. I got the files from my works FTP site and I need to boot into a computer a my friends work. I cannot for the life of me get this to work. I have the software downloaded, it has a bootsect.bin file and some other files to boot the computer. I placed the files onto a floppy, I am using nero, and burnt a bootable disk using the boot files from the floppy. I get a lovly NTLDR is missing when I try to boot. I am ready to throw my computer through the window!!! I cannot get a hold of a image of the software I am trying to burn, Is there anyway to compile the ISO with thrid party software and then burn the ISO to disk?

I seem to recall that ERD commander generates it's boot disk from the running copy on the machine. It's been awhile since I saw it...

Well I figured it out, and if anyone is wondering, all I can say is "user error" :D

Just use magiciso to compile the iso image and burn iso image to disc.

I think the message that stated "I figured it out" means he doesn't have the problem anymore. :D
