  • ISO of 2008. Extract?

    Hi,
    I was able to download Windows Server 2008 from EOpen. It's an ISO file.
    It works fine when I install it in Fusion on a Mac. But I can't seem to extract it to get at adprep/forestprep in the sources folder. I also can't seem to burn a useable copy. I need to practice adding a 2008 server to a 2003 domain but I can't seem to download adprep or extract it from this ISO file. What am I doing wrong? I tried WinImage but It couldn't read the source file.

    Thanks,
    Th

    Well you should burn it to a DVD and then it should work.

      Thanks D,
      I tried what you said but the burner just copied the ISO intact. In the last hour I found a program called MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD manager (http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/mi...c-overview.htm). It mounts the ISO and revels the files. It's pretty cool and Free.
      I know what you say is true but I must be missing something. Or maybe it burns as an ISO on the DVD because I burned it on the Mac. I bought a DVD burner for my XP tower PC I just haven't gotten around to installing it. The Nero soft that comes with the DVD burner must have a way to extract and burn. I don't know. I don't play games or burn music. The whole DVD/ISO burning thing is foreign to me even though I work on computers for a living.

      Thank you for replying so quickly.

        In nero, try looking for burn image to disk.

            Thanks guys!
            This has been bugging me for a while. I should probably know all about burning and such - but I don't know squat. Every day I discover something new I don't know. It was really holding me back.
            I spent the rest of the night adding a 2008 server to a test 2003 domain. It fought every step of the way. I must have typed dcpromo 10 times before I got it to happen.
            I now have an Nslookup error problem on the 2008 server. I created the reverse lookup zone and the prt records. I can ping back and forth from each server ... It's got to be related to IPV6 because I a ":: 1" listed as the 1st server when I do an IPconfig . Well that's off topic so I'll post it in another post.
            Thanks again.

                You know, what bothers me is the fact that you did not even bother to use Google.

                http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...earch&aq=f&oq=

                Guess what site comes up first on the results page?
                Cheers,

                  Ya know... I couldn't Google it at first because I couldn't phrase the problem. Everyone kept telling me that it would just work. But it didn't. I came to Petri looking for a solution. As I typed it out I found the words to describe it. I then used Google and found it. I tried to Google it in the past but as I said I didn't even know what the problem was. In any case it worked. Thank you. If I've broken any rules I apologise.
