Windows 7: Add Files to Bootable Windows ISO

Add Files to Bootable Windows ISO

I am trying to build a Windows Server VPS on Vultr but it can not boot the Windows Server ISO directly. Instead, it requires additional files to be added to the original ISO.

How to do this and make sure the edited ISO still bootable?

Can you link to what is required in the iso?


For most purposes, you can edit an iso using any number of tools - gburner is a fully functional free trail for 30 days
gBurner - A powerful CD, DVD and BD burning software


I just looked, it is explained here:
Windows Custom ISO with VirtIO Drivers - Vultr.com



the ISO mastering tool needs to set the following
  • Filesystem: UDF, Include Hidden Files, Include System Files
  • Make image bootable.
  • Emulation Type: none
  • Boot Image: C:\custom\winserver\boot\etfsboot.com
  • Platform ID: 80x86
  • Developer ID: Microsoft Corporation
  • Sectors to load: 8

Open your existing windows 7 or Server iso with gburner, add the files, then save the new iso.

It should look similar to this:

Win7 and server 2008r2 official iso files already support bootx64.efi and etfsboot.com and load 8 sectors by default.



If you want only etfsboot.com as the boot image, you can use this:
etfsboot.zip

gburner does edit an iso,but the iso that it edits have issue, and sometimes they can't even be burned to a useful boot disk,the edited ISO cannot boot.
Know that?
ISO to USB
And:

The iso file can be edited and added without lossing.

I have never had that issue. You probably did something wrong.
