Unfortunately there is a test that blocks the use of an ISO file as an IMG file. The test is based on file content analysis and finds that the IMG-renamed file is indeed an ISO file. I need to publish a fix for this tool. In the meanwhile you can use the attached Python script to perform your tests.

Thank you, though I cannot access any USB device (see http://team.doudoulinux.org/issues/291)

In the meanwhile I figured out that the image file is an ISO file and not an iso-hybrid one (ISO/IMG), which explains the issue with the USB writing tool. I fixed the bug in the CD build script and now need further testing. I'll inform on the list when a new build valid for both IMG/ISO is available.

There are additional fixes to make the script liveusb-write work since it assumes the ISO image is less than 750MB. However the latest tests showed that USB keys are not working. sfdisk is complaining about the first partition starting at sector 0 instead of 1 and then moves it of one sector. I believe this results in a broken file system: only the booloader shows at USB boot. Further investigations are required…

... but liveusb-write tool still doesn't recognize renamed ISO file as IMG file (I try ii at Gondwana)

Actions #7

You'll have to use the version of the Squeeze build since the version of Gondwana won't be up to date until the release update in September.
