SPP 2016.10.... mounting ISO hangs after editing ISO Linux boot menu.

I am using magic ISO to extract the ISOLinux file and editing the following menu option...

append initrd=initrd.img media=cdrom root=/dev/ram0 splash quiet hp_fibre cdcache showopts TYPE=AUTOMATIC AUTOPOWEROFFONSUCCESS=yes

I save the changes the  insert the file back into the ISO and save... I then mount to boot the ISO via virtual media and it boots to TH SPP menu with the timeout change I also made in the cfg file... selects my default option comes up with the splash screen and when it should start mounting is when it hangs and says can't mount file system ... can't find cd rom ...

 

am am I repackaging the ISO incorrectly?  Is there a proper way to edit the isolinux cfg file in windows ?  

 

When i I edit the file on a bootable USB it still boots fine...

Re: SPP 2016.10.... mounting ISO hangs after editing ISO Linux boot menu.

did you modify the legacy or uefi boot files? what mode are you booting?

Hope this helps!

Re: SPP 2016.10.... mounting ISO hangs after editing ISO Linux boot menu.

I have solved this.

I had to use ultraiso to edit the files inside the ISO. Magic ISO was not working right.

All is well now.
