Cannot get the ISO's from this site to initiate install.
I am new and having troubles with ISO's. I got Mint 2011-09-gnome-dvd-32bit.iso. I checked it with md5summ and it was ok. I burned the image using imgburn onto a new dvd. formatter before burn. when I install the dvd, or reboot I get nothing. Is there something I am missing? when I look at the disc it shows casper folder, isolinux forlder, md5sum.txt in currently on disc then below it shos ready to be written desktop.ini. I am sure it is something I did or didnt do I jsut dont understand how to fix it. I would appretiate any help.
the pc is 2000 hp pavillion running windows ME at this time. that is why I want to upgrade to any good linux program that will run. If i remember at one point it said one version of an ISO ( could have been debian,mint 10, mint 12, slackware, or VL6.0 KDE clasic live stated that it would not suport i686 i think.
Distribution: OpenSUSE 13.2 64bit-Gnome on ASUS U52F
so when you said nothing happens do you mean the computer just boot from the hard drive instead of booting from the CD?
There are few things here.
1) make sure your computer has the BIOS set to boot from the CD tray.
2) you said your computer is a 2000 if that is the year do you have a DVD reader installed or is just a CD reader?
3) if you computer is like P II or P III I think Linux Mint with Gnome will be like too much for it. Let us know what hardware you have in that computer.
I agree that mint may be too much but other iso's didnt work either (debian, slackware, etc.). The DVD ISOs will not initiate in my HP windows 7 laptop, or another desktop running win xp either. Each download either torent or x86 were free download manager and imgburn perhaps this is the problem? pc is set to boot from cd tray, it will runa nd read buyt the disk or image will not initiate. I burned the image as an image using imgburn.
I think the problem is caused by the CD reader, for one it does not read dvd's and the second is that the ISO's were loaded as i686 when in fact the machine is 32bit 386 i think. Thank you all for the help.
