Exclamation Fedora 4 DVD Images DO NOT BOOT! even though my motherboard supports this feature


Hey everyone,

I have downloaded the dvd image of fedora 4 x64_64 from their website using bit torrent, which reported no errors during the entire download. So as I have only windows on their at the moment I've have done the following in nero burning room:
  • New Completation Wizard appears, selected start no multisession.
    Clicked on the burn tab, checked the speed and ensured only write was ticked. Clicked open in the left hand corner of the wizard.
  • Located the directory I downloaded from them: stenz-dvd-x86_64 which contained two files: FC4-x86_64-DVD.ISO & SHA1SUM. I burnt the ISO and Nero verified the disk.
  • Tried to boot from my new motherboard and it didn't work, even though I selected it to boot from the correct drive. What has gone wrong?

Does the DVD contain multiple files and directories or just the FC4-x86_64-DVD.ISO file? If so then the DVD was not created correctly. With Nero make sure you select burn from image option.

Thanks I can't even open the disk all I get is "The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable." I have tried burning off 3 or 4 copies and it still says the same thing Does it mean my dvd image is corrupt?

Its possible. You can compare the downloaded SHA1SUM with the calculated value to verify the file is good.

Thanks michaelk, it seems the image was corrupted. I know that my bit torrent client crashed a few times (due to windows). I've manged to find my linux format disc that contains OpenSUSE.
