At this point...

I have try to follow the first link, and... i have a ISO image, and i can open it.
When i transfer it with DD on USB flash drive i can open it, but it's not bootable.

So i have follow the second link with isohybrid... after this i can open the ISO,
But when i transfer it with DD on USB drive i can't open it, and with libparted (and gparted) i read "recusrive partition on /dev/sdb", and i can't open it, and it's not bootable.

Please follow the instructions provided by the make_iso.sh script:

Code: Select all

You can download 'mkisofs' utility directly from this location: http://porteus-kiosk.org/public/files/mkisofs
make it executable, move to /usr/local/bin folder and rerun this script.
Then run 'isohybrid -u ' against your custom ISO and it in virtual machine to make sure its working. If yes then you can burn it on the usb stick.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
