How Do I Know If My ISO Is Bootable?
The easiest way to determine if an ISO file is bootable is to check the file structure. Most bootable ISO files will have a bootable image file (usually named "boot.img" or "boot.iso") and a bootloader file (usually named "isolinux.bin" or "syslinux.bin"). If these files are present, then the ISO is likely bootable.
Another way to check is to burn the ISO to a disc and try to boot from it. If the ISO is bootable, then the computer should be able to boot from the disc.
Finally, some ISO files may have a special "boot flag" set that indicates that the file is bootable. This flag can be checked with the "fdisk" command line tool.
