237  Due to limitations of <b>mkisofs</b>, the script can't create a ISO file which is over 4,5 gigabytes in size. It causes problems if the size of your image is over 4,4 gigabytes. <b>Clonezilla-SysRescCD</b> contains a workaround that creates a ISO file that contains no image, so you can add the image manually later. This dialog asks if you want to do so. Note that if you see this dialog, you most likely need a dual layer DVD+R or Blu-ray disc to burn the image. <b>Growisofs</b> doesn't support multisession burning on dual layer DVD-R discs, so such disc can't be used either.</p>  <H3><a name="rui-13a"></a>Screen "Excessive Image Size" [<a href="#restore-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
