isohybrid.pl - Postprocess ISO images for hybrid mode (Perl)
isohybrid.pl [OPTIONS] IMAGE
Starting in version 3.72, ISOLINUX supports a "hybrid mode" which can be booted from either CD-ROM or from a device which BIOS considers a hard disk or ZIP disk, e.g. a USB key or similar. To enable this mode, the .iso image needs to be postprecessed with this utility. Note: isohybrid.pl is a Perl script, a C implementation of the same utility is available as isohybrid(1).
-h Number of default geometry heads. -s Number of default geometry sectors. -entry Specify partition entry number (1-4). -offset Specify partition offset (default 0). -type Specify partition type (default 0x17). -id Specify MBR ID (default random). -forcehd0 Always assume we are loaded as disk ID 0. -ctrlhd0 Assume disk ID 0 if the Ctrl key is pressed. -partok Allow booting from within a partition.
