The property which has content "ISOIMAGE" by default is called
Volume Id. To be set by xorriso command -volid.
man xorriso has:
Specify the volume ID. xorriso accepts any text up to 32
characters, but according to rarely obeyed specs stricter rules
ECMA-119 demands ASCII characters out of [A-Z0-9_]. Like:
Joliet allows 16 UCS-2 characters. Like: "Windows name"
Be aware that the volume id might get used automatically as name
of the mount point when the medium is inserted into a playful
If an ISO image gets loaded while the volume ID is set to
default "ISOIMAGE" or to "", then the volume ID of the loaded
image will become the effective volume id for the next write
run. But as soon as command -volid is performed afterwards, this
pending id is overridden by the new setting.
Consider this when setting -volid "ISOIMAGE" before executing
-dev, -indev, or -rollback. If you insist in -volid "ISOIMAGE",
set it again after those commands.
Within the mkisofs emulation it is option -V. (See man xorrisofs)
The boot loader GRUB uses a different property, the Volume Creation
Date And Time, which it interprets as UUID.
(See xorriso command -volume_date.)
Have a nice day :)
