Cannot boot from DSL live CD - returns: "can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry"
If I try to boot from the "The Official Damn Small Linux book" CD or from a CD-R with DSL-4.2.5.ISO (downloaded from the Internet and burned by myself), I get the boot prompt and after pressing enter:
"can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry"
This is exactly the same for these 2 seperate CDs, and for my 2 computers: when I try to boot from my new ASUS with pre-installed Timbuktu and when I try this from the new Intel MacBook at my work.
What steps should I take. Remember I'm a newbie.
Thanks for any help that get me running DSL.
I already tried the following:
At the boot prompt type: "dsl sata"
this returns "checking for sata...
After that nothing happens
Also I burned several new live CDs at a very low speed as image (not data)
problem was exactly the same: "can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry"
Tried the same with several new live CDs of DSL-3.4.ISO
result was exactly the same: "can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry"
So probably its not the CD...
Tried to make a live cd for puppy..iso, just to see what happens:
That works fine :-) (no compressed poppix?)
