Specs look strong enough. Did you md5sum the iso before burning the dvd?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Please consider looking at the following before posting to the Forum;

FYI: Netiquette is a set of social conventions that facilitate interaction over networks, ranging from Usenet and mailing lists to blogs and forums.

FYI: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.
These links should help;
Quote:
Look at: Newbie alert: 50 Open Source Replacements for Windows XP

Once you have selected and downloaded the ISO image you can use one of the 'MD5SUM' checkers below to verify a valid download. Then use 'Imgburn' at a low burn rate (setting of 4) to insure a valid burn on your hardware.
Quote:
M$Windows:
Windows Burn tutorial <- 'Nero' Live Video for the newbies who burn the iso instead of the image of the iso.
Imgburn <- 'ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!' + Freeware
-- MD5SUM:
M$Windows iso md5sum checking <- LQ Post on how too
md5sum.exe <- M$Win Application to perform md5sum checking.
winMd5Sum Portable <- FREE + Good for all M$ Windows

BTW, When posting code or Long lists of data please use the vbcode tags code(# at the top of reply window) or Quote (Balloon to the left of #). This will make your post cleaner therefore easier to read and aid in diagnosis of your issue(s).
Hope this helps.

Have Fun!

This is something else to try
Quote:
If it does not boot to a prompt but a black screen, then you should reboot the CD and enter ‘puppy pfix=nox’, in the space that asks for any boot options. Then at the prompt enter ‘xorgwizard’ twice

Guess burning to a cd may help.

When system goes black can you use alt+1 or alt+F1 to get a terminal?

Smile Puppy bootup

Success , "Puppy Lupu 528 005 has lift off!"

Finally managed to boot up using Linux Live USB Creator 2.8.28.

Found that I was able to alter bios settings to boot from USB ( got lucky did not believe my ten year old PC Pavilion P4 was able to do so).

Amazed at the speed of PUPPY.

Now to set up Email and Internet.

Thanks to all for your help and encouragement.

Best Regards
