Remastered CD will not boot


I have remastered knoppix v4.0. I have successfully created the iso. The iso is 618mb. I have burnt the iso using k3b. When i insert the cd and boot from it, it does not boot. But when i insert the cd into a pc with windows and check the contents the contents are there.

I have used the howto from : http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Knoppix_Remastering_Howto

Wach out with what you burn in K3B!

There's the normal burn... and the ISO burn ( or burn image ).

The reason why your cd doesn't boot it because you burned it normally.

When you startup k3b check the top menus in search for a label called "burn image", or something like that.

well, he *did* say that when he loads the cd on windows he can see the contents are there... unless by "contents" he meant an ISO file on the CD, i think he probably did indeed burn the ISO properly... that's why i'm thinking that perhaps when he created the ISO itself, he didn't make it bootable...

Well I had the same problem as him while trying to burn Ubuntu in Windows... Had to waist 4 cds before realizing that the burning program on windows s***s and that I was so stupid to burn it under Linux with k3b with the wrong settings.

The simptons I had was that at boot it only showed the first thing you get by booting on the cd, then it blocked all the time untill I did a proper burn.
