Thread: Fake CD

  1. #1

    Default Fake CD

    Hi all,

    Did you know if it is possible to boot a CD from a directory?
    I found a application named FakeCD to perform this with Windows. I am looking for something similar on Linux?

    Default Re: Fake CD

    From googling, I now know this about FakeCD:

    fakecd is a program that simulates a CD-ROM drive with a
    directory of a hard drive. Its intended purpose is to allow
    running of CD-based software entirely from a hard drive.
    In linux, this is easy to do without software. It can be done with simple commands from a terminal. A simple how to here:

    Note: This may already be obvious to you, but if the CD contains windows software, you will still need to use wine to execute any exe files.
