isolinux hybrid mode should be used - all other major distributions do so since last year
|||Ubuntu CD Images||
Binary package hint: syslinux
Since all other major distributions create hybrid mode iso images it is really sad to see that U does not use that feature. It was introduced with syslinux 3.72 which was over 1 year ago and used till then by Fedora, Moblin, Kanotix... As the U syslinux is a SuSE modification i would suggest to use the OpenSuSE patches. OpenSuSE uses hybrid images since 11.2, so only U is lagging behind. Source:
Maybe the patches work with 3.84 too, which would be the current version. All that needs to be done is
after creating the iso image and then you can copy it 1:1 onto usb drives, also
qemu -hda image.iso
will show the menu as simple test for hybrid mode.
