I'm sure all of you just wanna sigh right now and say something like "read the fucking manual", but the fact is that I've read a lot and asked a lot of people on different boards, but no one seams to be able to help me. So, I'd tought I'd ask here. smile.gif Very well, I'v decided to install Slack, but my computer refuses to boot up from the CD, that's burned as an bootable one. It's just saying something about 1.44 or something like that, and then it continues to boot up from the HDD and there for Win XP is loaded. Anyone got a sulotion to my problem?

BTW, excuse my bad english, will you? wink.gif

Assuming you downloaded a ISO file.

How did you burn the CD? What application did you use etc?
You can not use windows drag and drop method to create the CD.

Using XP view the contents of the CD. What do you see?
Files, directories etc?

Verified the bootloader configuration is set boot from CD first? Have you verified that your PC can boot from another bootable CD?

Yes, I d-loaded a ISO file. smile.gif

I burned it in Nero, as a bootable CD.

I can't see any files at all on it.

Yes, but it's just saying something about 1.44 floppy and then it continues to load XP. :/

In NERO ... get rid of the wizards and use the Burn Image option ... from the menu.

You DON'T need to do anything else to make it bootable...

Here is a howto.
----------------------------------------------------
On the latest version of Nero (Version 6), the selection is under the Recorder menu item and not the File menu item.

In Nero Express, select the Disc Image or Saved Project and not the bootable data cd option.
