    There have been a number of posts asking:

    1. How to create a bootable DVD rescue disk;
    2. How to add backup TIB files to the same boot disk

    I use a very simple method to do both and it works flawlessly. The method requires an ISO image editing software. I use UltraISO.

    Here's the procedure:

    1. Open UltraISO and create an ISO image of the bootable rescue CD;
    2. Burn the ISO image to a DVD disk using Nero;

    Now you have a bootable DVD rescue disk. UltraISO has a built-in burning tool but it can't take an ISO image of a CD, resize it, and put it on a DVD disk. Nero does.

    You can go on and add the TIB's to the bootable DVD disk. To do so, you probably want to use a DVD+/-RW instead of DVD+/-R in step 2.

    3. Open UltraISO and create an ISO image of the bootable DVD disk you just created;
    4. Open the ISO image in UltraISO;
    5. Add TIB's to the ISO image (don't exceed DVD disk capacity);
    6. Save the image to hard drive;
    7. Burn the saved ISO image to a DVD disk;

    That's it, folks. You can boot into TI from the DVD disk AND you will see all the TIB files on the same disk.

    Hello inclusion,

    Wdormann and I have both been there, done that and got our T shirts!! ;)

    This previous thread titled <How to create bootable rescue DVD(s):> contains 3 illustrated procedures for creating composite bootable rescue DVDs.

    1. Wdorman's original using WinISO + CD Shell + BCDW
    2. My updated version using WinISO + BCDW
    3. My latest procedure using UltraISO

    Regards
