first things first is your BIOS setup to boot from a cdrom first then the hard drive?, second did you make sure you burned the iso as an image and not a data disc?

yes cdrom is first to boot plus i used the f8 key to go to the boot list (hd cd or floppy list) and it didnt work with the sorcerer cd it just gave me a folder full of the files so i creted my own iso so that might be a reason as well but the source mage was a iso when i got it and burned it as an image useing nero express
