I don't think you're going to be able to make this happen from that
tape. To create an ISO you need to start with something optical. A
SAVSYS to an LTO is bootable itself so not sure why that's not
sufficient but you've stated you need an ISO so,...

To get a bootable ISO do a SAVSYS to a virtual optical drive and image
catalog. Then FTP THAT image off and there you have it. Don't hose
yourself with the EBCDIC/ASCII thing though simply use BINARY mode.

Once you've booted that ISO you can then select the tape drive as
'Alternative Installation Device' and continue from that. The ISO in
this case functions much as a 'boot loader' to get enough of IBM i into
the machine to be able to access the tape drive what may be on another
bus etc.

Long and short of this, I have a need to create a bootable ISO image
from a
LTO 21 media save. I am sure the ISO will end up in a IFS directory so
that I can then FTP it from system a, to VIOS image virtual media
repository. Anyone done anything similar to this, this is easy as using
duptap from physical media to a virtual tape image catalog, then ftp it
out
as EBCDIC.
