Makedisk ran out of disk space copying files ....

Postby tas3086 » Sun Feb 08, 2015 12:25 pm

BIBM 1.29a makedisk - creating a BIBM ISO file. I have made changes to the makedisk.cfg file (shown below) and have used it for years. Now, it appears that you/we have come up to the 2.88 MB disk image file size limit even for CD's. I there any way of getting around that limit easily? Any future plans?

Even with the change that I made to allow it to complete, I only have 381 bytes of disk space to play with. (my bui9 script file is 28,137 bytes in size)

Do you burn to CD/DVD or if you do, do you care if it's bootable - if not
getting rid of cdboot.f35 can be done.

The USB option non-partitioned will use the full size of the USB stick -
booting depends on the BIOS.

When we come up against it (scripts larger, .exe grow) there is some size
that can be saved on the build, but not much so at that point it (BIBM) will
need to switch to a different booting mode (in order to include scripting
and disk imaging).

Excellent, full answer. This is just one example of why Terabyte Unlimited is clearly ahead of your competition.

I find that I can use almost any size USB flash drive to boot.

Some card readers will not allow me to boot from USB, though. No, it is
not a setting in the bios.

creating "no partition" smaller than 2.8 works fine but ....

I have tried to create(makedisk) a USB larger than 2.8 MB without success. I continue to get the ran out of disk space writing file .... message. I have tried all the partition types, including no partition, on both a partitioned and un-partitioned USB flash drive. No Success. Do I need to change the USE288=1 option, or add another?

Any suggestions?

I guess you could try

DIRECT=1

but can't guarantee it will work...

You guessed perfectly, It works great. Booting a 3.005 meg image.
Thank You.
