it wont autoboot
i changed the bios to boot from disc but it doesnt read anything in the disk o_O
oh yeah when i downloaded it, it came as an .ISO file
should i extract it then burn it?
You should burn it as an iso image with whatever software your using, nero or adaptec, etc. I would guess right now you just burned the iso file straight to your cdr which won't work.
Burn as iso, and it should do the extraction and burn the cd correctly for you. Also its always best to check your cdr's with md5sums as well, to see if they match up with the site's image you downloaded from.
