When you burnt the cd with the .iso file you didnt just burn the file onto the cdrom did you. When you burn a .iso file you have to burn it as an image because the .iso file needs to be extracted onto the cdrom. Not sure if this is your problem.

Well, you need to burn the iso as an image. Don't just put the file on a CD. In nero, there is an option under the File menu that says "Burn image" - use that.

All your telling me though is that you burned the .iso file. If you just burn an iso file onto a cdrom its not gonna be bootable its just going to be a .iso file on a cdrom. It needs to be burned as an image file. What are you using to try and burn it. Most burning applications have an option to burn an image onto a cdrom.

I had the same problem burning an iso image for a patched kernel version of linux *iso file. You don't need to use Nero - you should have a prog called cdrecord.. do a 'which cdrecord'.

you'll need to do a 'cdrecord -scanbus' to find out what the dev ID's are (dev=0,0,0). You'll see something like the following...

0,0,0 0) 'TOSHIBA ' 'DVD-ROM SD-M1202' '1020' Removable CD-ROM
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *


We're only concerned with the first 3 numbers in the TOSHIBA line. Put this in the command line below, where dev=

type in 'cdrecord -v speed=2 dev=0,0,0 -data /blah/blah/whatever.iso'

BTW, don't forget the -data flag. I forgot it and burned the "file" not the "image" onto 3 CD's. I believe the data flag tells it to burn bit-for-bit. I can't remember, but you might have to tell it the filesystem type iso9660 - don't quote me on that! Good luck.
