    What is the solution to a failure to create an ISO file.
    The ending lines of my UBCD4WIN PE Builder v.3.1.10a are:

    Build ISO image
    Running external program
    C:\UBCD4Win\mkisofs.exe -iso-level 4 -volid "The Ultimate Boot CD for Windows" -b bootsect.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -hide bootsect.bin -hide boot.catalog -o "C:\UBCD4Win\UBCD4Win.iso" "C:\UBCD4Win\BartPE"
    The directory name is invalid.
    Building ISO image done
    Building done...
    There where 0 errors and 1 warnings
    Use the [<<] and [>>] buttons to jump to Error/Warning.

    I do not get an ISO file created. However, the BartPE folder is fully populated.
    Should I burn a copy of this folder's contents to the CD or should I expect an ISO file to burn from?

    Any advice?

    TIA

        The Warning line is at the top and I think it is not related:

        Warning: building from an OEM version of Windows can mean trouble...

        Any hints?

        Thanks.

          It means exactly what it says. Try to avoid using Dell or other OEM restore cd as your build source. If you do a search at this forum you'll find all the information you need.

            Check your Comspec variable for your Windows you are building in... see http://support.micro....aspx/kb/164545
            Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

              Thank you!
              This info offered exactly the correct fix for this problem. (The warning about OEM is not related.)
              I modified the Comspec system variable by deleting the parameter e:xxxx (whatever numbers you have).
              Windows does not need this param - it was on my system to make some DOS programs work.
              For anyone else with a similar problem, please note that you must reboot for the change to have an effect.
              After a reboot, UBCD4Win created an ISO file.

              :)
