iso images not recognized


Hi,

My iso images (fedora 7 DVD i386 & fedora core 6 x86 disc1) are not recognized during boot.

When I ask for a boot from CD, the system comes back with following error message:
"No bootable device found
Strike F1 to retry, strike F2 to return to setup utility"

I downloaded the DVD image using bittorrent so DVD should be checksum error free.
The second image I didn't check. However still not recognized during setup.

Has anybody any idea why my iso images are not recognized?
Is there something I should do when buring to DVD or CD?
Unpack the iso images into readable files at system startup,perhaps?


Raka.

How did you burn the images?


Cheers,

An ISO image is an exact copy of the media (CD or DVD). Since your running SuSE why not use k3b to burn the ISO to the media???

k3b menu bar--> Tools--> Burn DVD ISO image....

A quick check is to mount the DVD, if you see one file then you mage a copy of the ISO image file and not the DVD image.

Just in case, go in the BIOS - press <delete> or <F8> just at startup - and check that you still have the CD/DVD on the boot device list. If you never went in there before, dont change anything, or dont go ..

edit:

here is a burn command that - kinda - works for me:

cdrecord --dev=/dev/hdc speed=8 -eject -isosize /home/ceilingFan/software/Fedora06/FC-6-i386-disc1.iso

If you look at the contents of the CD, what do you see?

That means you burned it incorrectly. If you had burned it correctly (I'm not criticising you, just telling you where the mistake you made was ), you would see a collection of files and folders. You need to find out how to burn images in the software you're using (Nero for example has a "Burn image" option in the menu somewhere. Your software may have a similar option).

Far from it. There should be files and directories instead. Use a "burn from an iso image" option of your burning software; disc images are burnt in a special way (not as regular data cds).

Great Windows software, free of charge: imgburn. It's by far the best tool I've seen when working with images on Windows; it even burns a cd iso onto DVD without asking stupid questions like other programs
