What setting do you use to be sure that the cd will be bootable?

the file is already saved as .cdr.dmg (via disc copy)

im using toast titanium 5.2

Here's how you do a bootable OS 9 disk. Not sure about X.
Boot up in OS 9--the options are still there when you boot in X, but it doesn't seem to be able to actually create a bootable disk.
1. First, mount the dmg image (double click it).
2. Then choose "Mac Volume" from the "other" menu.
3. Click "Select..." and choose the volume you just mounted.
4. Now options show up, including "Bootable" (check it) and "Optimize" (UN-check this one, it seems to mess up the bootability).
Hope this helps... if you're talking X, though, I'd like to know too.

You cant do it with Toast. You need to use a little app called BootCD to create an image, then burn it with Toast.

As far as I know that is the only way. Its been a while since I did it though.

BootCD 0.54 only works with Jaguar.

Toast cannot make bootable OS X discs, but it can burn the disc images that other utilities (ie: BootCD) make.

For burning a bootable OS 9 disk, there are instructions on the Roxio website.

http://www.roxio.com/en/support/kb/t...T0000001.jhtml

The instructions are for Toast 4.x & 5.x

I use Toast 6.0 and it makes bootable CDs easily simply by using the "copy" function in OS 10.3.3.

Perhaps an upgrade to 6.0 is another solution?

Cheers

Just copy it in Disk Copy as an Image from Device, name it whatever it is, and then burn the disc image from Disk Copy...don't mount it.

ya that sucks because my cd writer is not supported by X natively so I have to use toast to burn.
