    I will share how to build .iso if you have backup/.sblive image more than 4GB.

    Method I:

      • mkdir sblive
      • tar -xf /home/systemback_live_2016-04-27.sblive -C sblive
    • Rename the syslinux to isolinux:
      • mv sblive/syslinux/syslinux.cfg sblive/syslinux/isolinux.cfg
      • mv sblive/syslinux sblive/isolinux
    • Generate the ISO file:
      • genisoimage -iso-level 3 -r -V sblive -cache-inodes -J -l -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -c isolinux/boot.cat -o sblive.iso sblive

    Method II:

    Using mkisofs: sudo apt-get install mkisofs
    • mkisofs -iso-level 3 -r -V sblive -cache-inodes -J -l -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -c isolinux/boot.cat -o sblive.iso sblive
