    With build 768, can you make a recovery disk on a DVD recordable?

    Got an external Plextor DVD and would like to create it there...

    my image is larger than 2GB - I got the error msg from Nero about not being able to use it in ISO.

    is it possible to create the DVD without adding the Image until after the initial setup is complete? or once the DVD is created using ISO it will not be possible?

    I also misunderstood the piece about the [cdshell]\boot subdir..

    are you referrring to \csshell\boot or just \boot ?

    You cannot put files larger than 2GB on an ISO9660 filesystem. Actually, you need to have the max file size as 1.9GB. It appears that the file size created with ATI8's "2GB" is slightly larger than previous versions' "2GB". (2,147,483,648 bytes vs. 2,040,109,056 bytes). Why they decided to switch from Gigiabyte (GB) to Gibibyte (GiB) is beyond me...

    I said to extract cdshell somewhere. Replace [cdshell] with somewhere. If you extracted the cdshell files to "\csshell", then "\csshell\boot" is what you want.
