Debian Installation :: Bad Burn On Squeeze Rescue CD?

Feb 12, 2011

Looking at the versions of Squeeze available on Live CD's from I noticed a Rescue CD. I decided to download and burn the 386 version in order to get a look at it. I did so and checked the MD5Sum. It indicated a good download. I then used k3b (which I prefer because it has proven to be somewhat more reliable than Brasero) to burn the iso file. I did it at the lowest speed k3b allows (10X for CDs) and asked for verification of the burn. The disk was verified.I then booted the disk and the disk failed to load citing a read error at block 144640, sector 1157120.

I downloaded another version of the same iso file and again checked the MD5Sum, which was good. I again burned with k3b in the same manner as above and got the exactly the same error.I have had no indication of any problem with my TSST CD/DVD drive and I doubt very much that two consecutive Memorex CDs would be bad. What am I missing here?One other question: Is there a way to check the MD5sum on a disk that has been burned? Should it be the same as the MD5Sum shown for the iso file? I see that I can check the MD5Sum for individual files on the burned CD. Given the very large number of files, which one might it make sense to check?

Fedora Installation :: How To Burn The ISO On Vista

Feb 20, 2009

I have a clean Linux box on which I want to install Fedora 10.I downloaded the 3.6GB ISO file (Fedora-10-i386-DVD) onto my Windows Vista machine, and then installed ISO Recorder, with which I burned the image to a DVD.I was surprised that the image took only about 10 minutes to burn, maybe less.When I then tried to install Fedora 10 on the Linux box from the DVD, after a minute of checking devices and such, it says "Error loading operating system." It goes no further.I'm thinking that the technique I used to burn ISO into the DVD was insufficient. I followed the instructions I found in the ISO readme for burning with the ISO Recorder V2 Power Toy:Obtain and install the ISO Recorder power toy from the

1. In the file manager Explorer, right click on the first Fedora ISO file.2. In the context menu, select Copy image to CD.3. Follow the steps given by the CD Recording Wizard pop-up.4. Repeat for the remaining ISO files.Actually, the ISO Recorder I downloaded said nothing about being a "power toy"--it was ISO Recorder V3.1 - for Windows Vista/Windows 7. But the wizard gave no choice of specifying which in the ISO were boot code vs. package code. It was basically a one-click burn. I just selected Image File (Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso) and clicked Next. I expected there would be a step for specifying something about boot code. Or, when you install Fedora from

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Burn Present OS On DVD / CD

Aug 5, 2010

Recently, I've started to use Ubuntu operating system.. the last version 10.04 LTS. I downloaded the .ISO image file from the site and burnt a CD to use it back, but I was wondering now after I installed my Ubuntu and made all updates and upgrades to the applications and added all packages that might be useful for me, can or can't I burn the present system with all the add-ons that I've added on DVD/CD?? Instead of using the old CD that I made which is free of all packages and necessary programs.. or at least, is not there downloadable files from the internet that allow me to install the packages and the programs offline!! Considering that I might not be able to have an internet connection..

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get Server 10.10 To Burn An ISO

Mar 3, 2011

I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server on a test server at work. So I downloaded the .ISO from Ubuntu's website and burned it to a CD using InfraRecorder at 12x. It booted fine, but it failed a disk integrity check.

Tried to check the md5 of the ISO by mounting it vCdControlTool (I'm running Windows XP Pro on my workstation) and opening the md5sum file... and it was huge! Like 128 lines huge... I tried using md5summer (and later md5 check) to check it anyway and it returned a bunch of errors. So i redownloaded the ISO and burned a new disc. Same error.

Now I'm pretty sure I'm not doing the md5 check right, but either way I've downloaded the ISO twice and burned three copies now and all have given me the same error.

Trying to install on an old Dell workstation with P4, 384mb 333MHz ram, and a 20 gig HDD.

Fedora Installation :: F7 Software To Burn Iso Image To CD

Jun 13, 2009

I read in the F11 install guide that you can download a install iso image and then do an internet install. Since my F11 DVD hasn't arrived yet; I downloaded that ISO ; and figured it'd be a quicker install anyway, since that way I'd avoid having to download all the updates after the DVD install.I have a USB CD-RW drive attached to my laptop, currently running F7. Almost all of the instructions I see for burning a CD image are for Win users and Win software. I did download Brasero and it's acting flaky; it seems to want to unmount my CDRW drive, even when I'm logged in as root; so it doesn't give me that option to burn to that disk.

I found K3B, but that's for KDE and I'm using Gnome -- is there any good CD burning software (with a link please?) I can use?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Burn Boot Disk

have previously burnt many iso Ubntu disks with no problems but evry time I try whether Linux or win I cannot boot from the disk. The burnt disk shows separate files rather than a single iso.

Debian Installation :: USB Installation Fails To Find An Installation Iso Image

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Debian maybe 30 times over the years since about 2003, stable, testing and Sid on two different desktops and two different laptops. The only problem I have ever had is sometimes with a flaky daily build. It is one of my favorite distros.

BUT, I am totally frustrated is trying to install to a USB. I have followed the manual step by step about 6 times in the past two weeks. The result is always the same. The installation fails to find an installation iso image. Yes, I know the iso image and the hd-media vmlinuz and initrd.gz files are supposed to be the same version.

File: debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso from: [url]

Files: vmlinuz and initrd.gz from: [url]

The USB boots to a Language selection screen and proceeds through the Keyboard selection screen with no problems.

The next step which searches for an installation iso image fails.

Skipping that step and trying to load installer components from iso image also fails.

Searching the entire PC for an installation iso image also fails. (I even copied the netinst iso image to the HD root directory.)

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Burn *.iso On Dvd

Sep 5, 2010

For many moons I had no problem burning *.iso images on dvds on my Debian Lenny system.

I simply inserted a blank writable DVD disk into the burner followed the directions on the dialog window and it worked. Can't even remember the name of the software.

But, it's now stopped working.

1. I now get a small dialog that says "Blank DVD Inserted ... Make DVD."

2. I click on "Make DVD"

3. I get cd dvd creator. But window is blank; write to disk is grayed out-- as is "files... Browse Folders."

- This is not what I remember... and not all clear what to do next.

4. I tried installing K3B. But, it tells me it can't find a cd/dvd device on my system. But I have two a Sony DRX-830U connected through USB and generic installed on my system.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Burn A DVD

I have an internal ATAPI dvd burner/cd burner. It mounts whatever media I drop in just fine (cd or DVD), and will burn to CD media without a hitch. However, it seems to refuse to actually burn DVD's It has worked before when I was running PClinuxOS but started to burn coasters on an intermittant basis. I was having other issues with PC linuxOS so I have tried a few different distos since. All distros will read media and burn to CD, but I still can't burn a DVD. I have tried k3b, Braseo, and xfburn What error messages should I look for?
