Standalone Genesis Game on Dreamcast

I know there are a plethora of NeoGeo stand-alone discs for games on the Dreamcast. Does anyone know how to make a Genesis standalone game?
I found some stuff online about burining an emulator disc with the rom on it, but does anyone know if there is a way to make a disc that boots up directly to a genesis game?

I think this would only be possible if the emulator was coded to be able to boot straight to a game from config settings or something. Did you ever find an answer?

I have not figured this out yet...

AFAIK, Genesis emulation is pretty weak on the Dreamcast (unless homebrew folks have made lots of progress in the past couple years). But I don't know how to make single-boot discs for titles. Sorry.

I would suggest this: Download DC Genesis emulators and check any config or ini files that they might have. Look in them for anything that might be a setting for booting straight to a game.
