NAME¶bootcdwrite - build a bootable iso image from a running system
- bootcdwrite [-i|-s|-m] [-d debug_runtime_config] -- [-h|--help]
- [-c|--conf CONF] [--only_floppy] [-y|--yes] [--mokcrtder MOKCRTDER] [--variable_from_bootcdwrite.conf(5) value] [--function_from_bootcdwrite.conf(5) definition]
DESCRIPTION¶bootcdwrite is used to write a Linux Installation to an iso image. It is possible to copy a system mounted per NFS to a local iso. The iso can be copied to a CD or DVD with standard tools.
It is important that the kernel can access the cdrom on the system, where you want to boot from the CD, without having to load any modules. (Because to load modules from CD, the kernel must have access to CD before). If this is not the case you have first to create a new kernel with CD-support built in.
If something goes wrong with bootcdwrite, the user will be given the chance to correct the problem. bootcdwrite starts many commands. If a command exits with an exit code != 0, or if a command produces unknown output on stdout or stderr, the command and the output will be shown to the user. He gets the option to exit, retry the failed command, or to ignore the failed command.
If secure boot is not used, or if a standard Debian signed Kernel is used on a system with the standard Microsoft Platform Key (PK) installed in BIOS this option is not needed.
