Bootable CD using K3b
have been a lot of
questions on forums on the internet on how to make a bootable CD using
Ubuntu. I am here to tell you that it can be done using K3b.
Lets get to work.
First thing you will need to do is install K3b if you don't already
have it installed. To install K3b type the following in a
Gutsy and earlier
apt-get install k3b libk3b2-mp3
Hardy and later
apt-get install k3b libk3b2-extracodecs
This will install K3b and the MP3 plugin. If you have these
installed then skip this step.
This image contains a
goodies like fdisk and format. You have now created
bootable CD in a completely open source environment. Proof
positive that anything Windows can do Ubuntu can so as well!!!!!
- Download the DOS Boot Image file here.
Save the .zip file to your hard drive and decompress the .IMA
file contained in the archive.
- Start up K3b.
- Click "New Data CD Project"
- Click the button "Edit
the boot images of this project to make it bootable.". This
button is 3 buttons over from the "Burn" button.
- This will bring up the "Edit Boot Images" window.
- Click the "New..." button.
- This will bring up the "Please Choose Boot Image" window.
- Navigate to where you saved the DosBootimage.IMA file and
- You will now see and entry in the "Edit Boot Images"
window. The entry will look like this:
- Emulation Type is floppy and Local Path is pointing to
- Hit the "Ok" button.
- Drag and drop other files as you wish into your project.
- Hit the "Burn" button.
- After the burn process is done the CD is now bootable!!!!!!!
I hope this helps.
