Problem Installing FC5 - Incorrect CDROM


Hello everybody. I am trying Linux for the first time, but am having a bit of trouble installing Fedora Core 5. CD1 is ok, and I am able to initialize the installation. However, when I get to CD2, it tells me 'Thats not the correct Fedora Core CDROM'. I have downloaded the iso from Fedora's website onto my Windows XP NTFS machine. I have verified the CD with the checksum. To burn the ISO, I used Nero Burning Rom, and have tried using a low 4x speed.

I have used the following settings in Nero:
  1. Tried both, disc-at-once and track-at-once
  2. Finalize CD
  3. Data Mode 1
  4. ISO 9660 + Joliet
  5. Character Set ISO 9660 Standard
  6. No MultiSession

Anybody have any ideas before I redownload the image and waste another CD?

Did it pass the installation disk check OK?

What's that?? (OP said the checksums were OK)

For BeanGo: Since you are able to boot from CD1, you obviously have not fallen into the copy-the-iso-file-to-the-CD trap...

Check you CD drive to make sure is correctly reads (or boots) some other CDs. If so, then your CD-2 may have not burned corectly. If the download checksum was OK, then all you have to do is just burn another CD.

Waste a CD? At 20-30 cents each, it's a fair bet that your time is the more critical resource.

The disk check that Anaconda does during installation. I assume this isn't simply a repeat of a checksum test - but who knows.

Thanks for the replies. The actual solution is that I needed to burn discs 2 thru 5 using the wizard.
StartSmart and the manual Burning ROM burn the images differently I guess.

Solution: Launch Nero StartSmart > Choose Copy and Backup > Choose Burn Image to Disc.
