My ISO is 849MB and I only have 700MB (80min) CDs.
I wanted to know if the ISO really was full so I used MagicDisc V2.7 build 106 (freeware) to mount the iso and then XP to size it.
It is only 115MB!!
So how do I recreate the ISO for an 80min CD instead of a 90min CD?
Can a 80min CD be the default?
Thanks in advance!

I burned the ISO to a DVD and it didn't boot :-)
CDs boot fine but not the DVD.
BTW I noticed the C:\UBCD4Win\BartPE is 870MB.
I don't understand why the size of all the files on the mounted ISO are only 115MB...
None of my system files are hidden. Possibly a "feature" of MagicDisc?
Next I'll try cutting it down to just virus scanners so it will fit onto a CD.

try burning the image file (ubcd4winbuilder.iso) using imgBurn.exe which is part of project
It will suceed in making a bootable Disk whether it is a CD-R (CD-RW) or a DVD-R (DVD-RW)
The default is to burn ISO images
(it avoids getting confused with options required to create bootable CD's, but not required to burn ISO images)

Thanks for the tip. I thought an iso was a "raw image" bit for bit. I didn't realise I still needed options to make it bootable!
I'll investigate... Might have to wait until the weekend though!

Oh, I did burn it as an image. If I put the DVD in the drive then I can see all the files.
So it "should" boot? I'll try it on other pcs.

No, not if you don't burn it at a image!
Burn it as image, and try again.

If you build with a standard XP source and do not configure any plugins (especially to update anti virus definitions)
you should get a iso just under a standard CD say 680 to 690MB
Once you update the anti virus definitions size goes over a CD 702MB
(I just checked my build was 697MB including some additional plugins)
