quick DVD booting question

Postby Calum » Thu Jul 28, 2005 1:14 pm

i just got a DVD of fedora 4 and now i want to install it. i have a dvdrw drive and a cdrw drive in my machine, but when i stick the dvd in the dvd drive, the machine ignores it as i boot up. the boot order stuff in the bios settings don't help, they are all windows device letters anyway, and none of them seem to imagine i might have a dvd drive installed. i think it might be possible to physically remove the cdrw from the PC to get the dvd to boot, but i would rather not do that, because i want all the hardware to be there when i install the system, that will be there when the system is running.

so...

how do i get the dvd to boot? i own a 64MB usb memory stick, if that helps, and this PC does have a floppy drive... the internet seems not to know a lot about this subject though, one page just said that if i couldn't boot from the dvd drive, then i would have to get the CDs instead, which i find very hard to believe.

Is the same type of problem I had (wasn't with Fedora though).

Maybe this helps.

The way the ISO is burnt onto the disc makes the difference.

As I don't have a dvd writer, I asked a friend to burn it.
He burnt it using Nero 6.?? on a winbloze machine - and it wouldn't
boot, everything else was there. We then discovered there is
a setting that says something like "track-at-once" or some such.
Apparently this have to be on, to make the writer do track zero as well?
to make it bootable.

Reburnt the dvd with that setting, and presto, it then booted thereafter.

Best of luck

Hmmm, if what caveman suggests isn't the problem and it is actually a problem with your system (where it won't boot any disk) then you can also create a minimal boot CD (the new kernels won't fit on a floppy). There is a CD ISO image on the DVD that you can create a boot CD from. I know that's tacky but it may be your only option. I burnt my FC4 DVD with Nero (only because that was the only machine that had a burner in it at work where we have a T3 to download disks quickly) and mine burnt just fine. There is an option in the menu for burning ISOs. I don't remember what the settings were but I think I always use "Disk at Once" in Linux.

ahemm

Yes - now that I saw Voids' reply..
The default is track-at-once and you have to change it
to disc-at-once -
Not hundred percent sure... but shall try and find out - that is
if I can get hold of the guy that burnt the dvd.

Just know that one of those settings doesn't do what you expect
when burning a iso image.
