Create a bootable PS2 disc
- We have TEST.ELF and you want to boot it when you insert the disc. It's important that all files and directories are uppercase and the filename no longer than 8 characaters + 3 characters exenstion.
- Create a text file called SYSTEM.CNF and put the following lines into it:
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\TEST.ELF;1
VER = 1.00
VMODE = NTSC/PAL
- Replace TEST.ELF with your application filename, and if preferable you can change the video mode.
- Create a CDGenPS2 ISO file (recommended) or a new Nero compilation:
- Nero settings:
File name length: ISO Level 1 (Ensures max 8 chars + 3 chars extension)
No joilet (Ensures uppercase)
Character set: ISO 9660
Write method: Disc-at-once
Write speed: 12x or lower
Drag and drop file files into the new comilation, and it's necessary to add a dummy file, atleast 10 MB. This can be whatever file format, just name it BBB.BBB and drop it in the compilation.
- CDGenPS2 and BurnAtOnce:
Drag and drop the files over to CDGenPS2, but make sure SYSTEM.CNF is first file and change the LBA to 12231 (no need to add dummy file then). Select File -> Save Image, you will get a error message if one of the files are not compatible with the PS2 file system spesifications. Use BurnAtOnce to burn the image at speeds not faster than 12x, CD-RW not recommended.
- Boot disc in your PS2 :)
