I'm looking for a freeware utility that will clone a bootable USB stick with special build of Slax with an inhouse developed program to a bootable CDROM. There's plenty of information on how to go the opposite way, from bootable CDROM to bootable USB, but our company has several bootable sticks that we want to make into bootable CD's.
I'm looking specifically for freeware/sourceforge type programs, NOT shareware or paid software.
I tried copying the file structure from the USB stick (which is formatted Fat32) to a CD and burning it, but that CD won't boot.
I've also tried using a freeware app called USB image tool 1.59 by Alexander Beug (alex's coding playground
) to generate a .img file of the bootable flash drive, then used an app called cdrtfe 1.5 portable by O. Valencia (cdrtfe - open source CD/DVD burning program (cdrtools/Mode2CDMaker/VCDImager Frontend/GUI)
), using the bootable CD option, and referencing the img file generated by USBimagetool. I was able to burn a disc, but it wouldn't boot.
I've looked through this article here Bart's way to create bootable CD-Roms (for Windows/Dos)
but all I'm wanting to do is create a bootable ISO clone of a flash drive that would also make a CD bootable and contain all the files therein.
Is such a process even possible?
