I am new to LFS, actually just from couple hours ago. I tried to burn the liveCD on a DVD and tried to use it to boot my laptop. But the system always boots to Win7 which is installed before. I want to build LFS system on my laptop as the only system. I have tried to check the BOIS, the first option to boot from is CD-ROM. Could anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
In some odd cases a cd image won't burn correctly to boot to some systems when put on dvd.
Try burning a cd instead.
Might be easy to try to boot it to a virtual machine just to check image being bootable. Qemu is easy enough just to check. Heck, I'd install some VM anyway and just use it for your testing and building if it is just for learning.
