I'm facing some problem with the Mandriva 2007 DVD and I would really appreciate your input on this.
I got the DVD ISO file downloaded via torrents from Mandriva's web page.I burned the ISO file with K3B by using the "Burn DVD ISO Image..."
Then the problem is that I can't boot my PC with this DVD
I tried the DVD on another machine, yet I faced the same problem.
The DVD seems to be working fine as I can access its content with my old OS (Debian). There are the i586 folder, and the release-notes.txt file on the root of the DVD, which I presume is fine. But, the booting problem is just a pain.
I have also checked my BIOS, and yes it is configured to boot from my DVD player first. I also tried to disable all other booting options except the DVD. But, then my system gave a booting failure message :P
Has anyone faced a similar problem before? If so, how did you manage to overcome it?
One more thing to add, I have tried different brands of DVDs of both + and - types, yet I still have the same problem.
Thank you all for your help
