According to FreeBSD Man Page, to make El Torito Live CD, we must do the following step:
Specifies the path and filename of the boot image to be used
when making an "El Torito" bootable CD. The pathname must be
relative to the source path specified to mkisofs. This option
is required to make an "El Torito" bootable CD. The boot image
must be exactly the size of either a 1200, 1440, or a 2880 kB
floppy, and mkisofs will use this size when creating the output
iso9660 filesystem. It is assumed that the first 512 byte sector
should be read from the boot image (it is essentially emulating
a normal floppy drive). This will work, for example, if the
boot image is a LILO based boot floppy.
If the boot image is not an image of a floppy, you need to add
one of the options: -hard-disk-boot or -no-emul-boot. If the
system should not boot off the emulated disk, use -no-boot.
If the -sort option has not been specified, the boot images are
sorted with low priority (+2) to the beginning of the medium.
If you don't like this, you need to specify a sort weight of 0
for the boot images.
