.img file not supported?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use the instructions here...

http://www.bay-wolf.com/diag.htm

 

to create a Dell boot cd, but using imgburn instead of downloading yet another burner. But when I select the .img file, Imgburn gives an error and says the format is not supported. Can you not use .img files with this utility?

Yes but that's not a *.img file you burn like a disc image (i.e. in Write mode), it's a boot image.

 

You have to use Build mode, click on the 'Advanced' tab, then the 'Bootable Disc' tab. Point 'Boot Image' to that *.img file.

 

According to the webpage you have to configure it for floppy disc emulation so change 'Emulation Type' to 'Floppy Disc (1.44 MB)'.

 

Then burn your disc.

Thanks...that got me over that hurdle....but now I need to get the rest of the files on there...and I don't see where I can add files. Of course I'm looking at his pictures on his site and trying to find the comparable functionality in Imgburn...but I don't see anywhere to "drag and drop" files. ??

Switch to build mode.

 

 

??? I already am in build mode. I can browse for files, but I see no place to "drag and drop" them to the disk to be written.

That's what the 'Source' box is.

 

If you want a more Nero style view, switch the 'Input' to 'Advanced'.
