Installation of Fedora Core 9


Hi,

I'm trying to install fedora core 9, the DVD boots normally, but after selecting keyboard language, I get the following message:

No fedora core CD/DVD detected on your drive!!

I've tried with i386 and i86_64, I have same message.

I've done a sumcheck with the iso file, it's ok..

Please help.

Thnks.

Did you burn it at high speed or a low speed?

I have found before that a CD burned at a high speed passes all the md5 checking but still is very difficult to install from, I know its frustrating to wait while it takes ages to burn a disk but try it at the lowest possible speed. I've seen this issue many times before, even when the CD says it supports 8x and I decide to play it safe by burning at 4x the disk looks ok but bizarre installation problems happen part way through, burning at 1x has often fixed this.

I disagree each manufacture gives a recommendation for the burning speed
The ones I buy for CD 42 X for DVD 16 X
Maximum burning speed of my DVD burner for DVD 24 X
So burning DVD 16 X no problems at all
