Well, what I want is none is these, but a command that puts in some directory the file tree that would end up in the c:\reactos if I installed the operating system from the bootcd. It would help if you had read what I wrote before trying to "respond"...
In other word, instead of creating the reactos.cab file, there should be a way to put the files in a separate directory.
When the RBuild was used, one could run "make install" to do this, but nowadays "ninja install" does not exist!
That way I could run the operating system in real hardware without risking my HD partition configuration through the text-mode setup program!
But that's just my preference... I'm not going to get angry if you tell me that there's no way to do this... However, some time ago it was in fact possible.
