Question Install RHL8 from Windows command Prompt


hello

for some reason, i am not able to boot from cd/dvd in a hp notebook, either with copies of RHL 8 or the original install media. System is able to boot from the xp pro/98 cds
by booting via safe mode with command prompt from xp pro, i can perhaps used a command to start the installation of red hat linux 8 from within the xp command prompt?
thanks

Are you sure that you have burned the cds correctly? Did you check the md5sums?

These links will help to determine if everything is good with your cds:

http://linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/verifyiso.html

BTW: RH8 is an older version of RH (and some say it is buggy). You would be better off grabbing Fedora if you want a recent RH system.

BTW2: have you tried creating a boot floppy and booting from that?

Yes, you are right. Tried installing in another system booting from floppy to access the CD media & nada. Looks like I need to download it again. Thanks the links. Usually do not pay attention to that but it these are times of changes..
