As workaround you can use this genisoimage wrapper:


#! /bin/bash

options=() # the buffer array for the parameters

while $1 ? do

case "$1" in

-e)

options+=("--eltorito-boot") shift ;;

*)

options+=("$1") shift ;;

esac

done

echo Calling genisoimage "${options[@]}"

eval exec /usr/bin/genisoimage "${options[@]}"

I have changed the usage of -e by the real option -efi-boot That should work better, but I still have issues creating UEFI bootable media (as reported in #777).

comment:5 Changed 16 months ago by bruno

I've added support for xorriso with rev [3502]. It will be used first if available.

A new debian 8 test version for mondo is now available under ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/debian/8

Please report if that fixes your issue for good.
