Yeah that would be cool! I wonder if I bypasses the search for the security code at the rim? Wasn't the boot disk made available to developers so that they can use their CD-R's to test their code? Or am I wrong?
I think this would be interesting also. If there is indeed some "magic code" that can be sent to the CD controller to disable the need for the security check, it might be possible to put it into AR firmware...
Considering how locked up the protection is overall, though., I doubt it's that easy - if it is indeed accomplished by sending a "magic code" to the CD controller, it probably won't accept it without already having the check successfully done (since the boot disc presumably has the security signature, otherwise it wouldn't boot), making the whole exercise fairly useless.
put disc in drive, hit write to image file....check two boxes, set max speed, name it boot and you'll end up with somthin like this:
image will b largest, sub will be about 30megs, and ccd will be 3-10megs...should only take about 3minutes for a full disc, but sizes will be much smaller probably cause boot cd shouldnt have much data on it
