I created a custom Ubuntu 11.10 amd64 desktop based distro using remastersys, but whenever I try to boot using the iso file in vmware, it shows this error : no ui or default configuration found

I've tried changing the name of isolinux to syslinux but that didn't help me either! I also tried using unetbootin but it also doesn't boot, and tried everything possible but to no avail.

There is a similar question but it is about 10.10 and 32 bit, but that didn't solve my issue and also as this is a custom distro, the solution could be different.

I've also tried creating images using remastersys again and again but that didn't help either. Please help me its very urgent!

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

It may seem trivial but do you have a working Internet connection when creating the image? From the Remastersys website: IMPORTANT NOTE: You must be connected to the internet so remastersys can download the correct Ubiquity frontend and it's dependencies. If you do not have internet access when you start remastersys, it will fail to download the frontend for the installer and your live system will not be installable. –  Mark Rooney Apr 7 '12 at 1:03

Copying ISO-image with unetbootin gives "isolinux" instead of "syslinux".

The folder and files must be renamed as described here.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  RolandiXor Jan 17 '13 at 5:55
