SUSE 9 Live Eval won't boot.


I can't get the Live Eval to boot with the ISO file on the CD. Just bypasses and goes straight to Windows. I have plenty of room on C:\ to create the required config folders/files. I'd like to use this eval disk without making changes to my company PC.

Check your BIOS settings. You probably have the boot sequence checking C: before CDROM

Did you burn the actual .iso file on the CD or as an image?

bingo. good catch Demon

The ISO is a disk image....it does no good to burn the ISO onto a CD. Your burning software needs to read it as a disk image and create a CD from that image rather than creating a data CD containing the image.

OK, can you explain how I put an "image" on the cd?
