I am trying to create an unnattended install CD for ESX 4.0. I don't want to use a network server to store the script, so I've been modifying the initrd.img scripts. I can get the CD to boot and run the script, but I am getting the following error.
could not mount media device -- /dev/cdrom
Any ideas how to fix this? I have attached the isolinux.cfg file and the ks-l3.cfg script. Thank you in advance for the help.
Ok, I found the problem to this. I use ImgBurn to create ISO images, and in my settings I selected the wrong type of CD, so it was truncating the filenames.
For those who are interested on the Options tab select "ISO9660 + Joliet" under file system. Then under the advanced tab, go to restrictions, select Joliet and select "Level X -110 Characters". This stopped ImgBurn from truncating file names, and everything is working.
