making a bootable ISO from an image

22 Mar 2012, 18:10

(I recently purchased the portable version)
Is that possible?
I created an image of a server (windows 2008) using Clonezilla. I moved it to my local machine. Used AnytoISO to make an ISO from a folder but saw no way to make it bootable. When I copy the ISO over to my proxmox machine and create the VM it can't boot.
Any help?
Thank you,
Brian

Bootable images are not supported yet (not many requests). In order to create a bootable image from a folder one should also specify the boot loader (special binary file) actually

Thank you for the response!

WIth all of the virutalization talk being done today, I'm trying (testing or playing around with) to virtualize one of my servers from an HP box to a Proxmox VM. It seemed like you product was the missing piece to get an image to an ISO to upload to Proxmox and then create a VM in Proxmox using the ISO.
Seems like it is a well established procedure but I'm not able to find all of the puzzle pieces.
