Hi I'm trying out FreeBSD 4.10
but I tried to boot it off the disc and the computer just ignores the disc and moves on, now I know you must think that I haven't burnt it properly, but I have, I burnt the 4.10 release installation disk 1 iso image, and burnt it on the CD, I also changed the bios setting to boot off the disk. and Downloaded the iso file again which took me like 5 hours to complete, so whats going on???
and also just to let you know that the computer is a
Toshiba Satellite 2805-s608 (Laptop)
thanks for your help
I'm sorry but how do you actually use rawwrite to create a boot disk for FreeBSD 4.10, and which file should I get on the boot CD to write it on the floopy disk using rawrite, to boot the boot CD.
It depends on which rawrite you use. On the one I used say... 2 years ago? I think... you just would cd into the directory that rawrite was placed in. I placed it into the C:\ so I wouldn't have to use crappy DOS.
C:\> rawrite -f filename.flp a:
That's what I remember having to do. Make sure the floppy is formatted to, or this won't work. =)
