Question :

Hi,  I am trying to create custom ESXi ISO image using mkisofs on a windows platform. I am executing below command .\mkisofs.exe -l -J -R -r -T -o 'customISO.iso' -b EFIBOOT.IMG -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -b EFIBOOT.IMG 'Vmware_ESXI_image'  The above command is generating the iso image but its not a bootable image.  What am I doing wrong in above command ?  Thanks, Ashish

Why are you not using the ImageBuilder?
