Shrink a bootable disk image to make it burnable on single layer disc


I have a bootable disk image which slightly exceeds the size of a single layer DVD. Here is what I did:

1- I Cloned it to a RW sparse image.
2- I removed some files from it (stuff not really needed, unrelated to bootability).
3- I hdutil compact'ed it
4- I tried to burn it. doesn't work. Of course: the file size is small enough, but the volume size is still logically too big.

Is there anything I can do? and no, I don't have access to the original bootable volume.

I will try to restore it back to a smaller disk image.
