Building the own bootable DVD installer images

Question

I try to build the own bootable DVD images with OS X installers and found some serious problems with way to create ISO file.

OS X system binaries have a utility for do it named 'hdiutil'.

 

This software contains special command for including boot sector in ISO images but thats all deprecated. With command 'El Torito' boot we can add the boot sector(e.g. cdboot from chameleon bootloader package) and create the disk.

In present days most of installers intended for USB flash drive ways but i'd like to use optical disks. Most of old cdboot files is to old for new hardware and disks created with that is to stupid. It's real boot images and chimerachameleon 'boot' file work correct but loading process crash after timer line is out.

 

Have any ideas how to create a boot DVD? I have a system and i have an installer but i can't write the working disk.

 

What CDBOOT sectors i can use to do the Ivy Bridge and Haswell compatible installer images? We really can build boot DVD images with OS X installer fast and simple but all of new installers intended to flash.

 

Have any ideas? Can we "respawn" old 'cdboot' style in new installers versions for Sandy, Ivy and Haswell?

 

In experimental bootable flash drive cropped OS X system with only x86_64 architecture, languages and minimal functioning software it's have only 2-2.5Gb disk space ... and it is a format of small(13 size) optical DVD circle.

    • Hi, Succesfully installed High Sierra. First time login with succes. After a restart the same login credentials were not accepted, so login failed. Login credentials were not changed! How to proceed? Thnx! H.    
    • Ok i tried right now. It started the installer. I did tools>disks and i tried to format one of my hdds in macos format and it gave me error. Then the hdd vanished. I went on win10 to format the hdd and have it back. When i went back to the bootable usb it gave me error. Here's everything https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1JYkmjHA4AOaCnBa_aqkXZTyste9MVd2S   Edit: ok i tried to boot first the other partition of the usb (the not EFI one) and it got stuck like it did before. Now i booted the efi one and it's booting fine like before. I'm gonna check if i can initiate the hdd. Allright it booted and started some kind of configuration. I waited for it to end and I did a reboot. The problem is that the resolution is too low and i can't see properly Clover's window. What can I do?

    • I changed the config.plist but still I don't reach the installation menu. It freezes at Apple screen at 60% of progress. In chameleon way (the cmd like) it still says "host-level exception" trying to change values but don't go furthermore. What I can do?
