what program are you using to burn with? most that i have used or seen have an option when burning to specify that it is a iso file, like adaptec has the option, forgot where it is.. but you might want to get with whatever software vendor your using for specifics.
im using nero burning rom, from ahead software. however when i last burned the iso, (as "burn image") it finished but when i insterted it, it only knew that it was 641mb. shouldn't windows be able to read the cd? whats the best software to use to burn the iso?
well within windows i use adaptec, as it came with my burner.. though stay away with version 5.0 in windows 2000, i hear it kills you windows machine... but you should be able to do the task with nero software.. but unfortunately i am not familiar with it.
have u tried using the "CD - Copy" feature instead of the "CD-ROM ISO" feature? that works perfectly. put your source Red Hat CD, let it take an image of the CD, then it asks you to put an empty disc. put your blank cd inside and then it copies.
do *NOT* copy the Red Hat Linux files on to your hard disk. i don't think it becomes a boot Cd. it's better to do a CD Copy instead of writing the files onto a CD from a hard disk.
Ok I could be wrong but maybe you need to extract the ISO files then burn it.
download ISO buster that will allow you to extract the file. I had to do this recently when I doownloaded the ISO of a new game (max payne)
I have DL the 'iso' discs 1-4 for Redhat Enterprise WS to my Redhat 9 '/home/bob/'. How do I get these iso's burned to a CD so that I can use them to install the OS? The simplest step-by-step 'instructions for dummies' would be most appreciated as I am a NEW NEW NOOBIE. I do have a Nero package on my XP system, but would like to be able to burn these discs on my Linux box. I've been reading manuals and how-to's for more than a week and so far I have tried to use CDWRITE and xcdroast, but have not had any luck in their use. They are far fromintuitive, so any Step-by-Step guidance is requested.
Well, I've tried both suggestions for Enterprise WS Version 3 and was able to burn the ISO for CD1 under Redhat 9 using xcdroast. Never could get the cdrecord session to work - it just 'copies' the ISO which is not bootable. Using the same procedure, after burn of CD's 2-4, I tried the install process. CD1 installs great, but when the process calls for CD 2, it always states 'wrong CD'. I've burned these discs 4 times and get the same response.
My attempts to contact RH results in '...we only assist with CD installation...'. Hell, that is my problem - how to get the _)(*&#@$*&*!%&(*$& CD's burned once the ISO's are downloaded????
I've DL the ISO's into RH 9 and also via an XP process (each at least 4 times) - neither CDRECORD, XCDROAST nor my XP Nero seem to burn these disc 's so they can be used to install the system. My advice to anyone contemplating switching to WS is to forget it - their customer support is as bad or worse than Windows - 20-30 minutes phone wait, 12-5 support, little advice for home users' - all of us recognize the drill - sell something and provide as little support as possible, etc.
Well, I dont understand whats so tough with burning a .iso file using Nero ?....There's a good tutorial on the website linuxiso.org...This is the site where one should look to - for downloading iso files for distros....
In Nero Express 5.5 -
1. Select " Burn Image"
2. Look for a drop down list box somewhere at the bottom....and Select " All Files " ...
3. Now Click burn.
( Note : Depending on the X rating of your CD-R, burn a CD appropriately...for instance, My burner is a 52X writer, but I burn CDs at 40X, to make sure there are no errors...)
The entire tutorial can be read from the following page:
