Help while creating bootable disk

Can anyone guide, how to create a bootable cd/dvd from downloaded iso images of CentOS 5? I have collected all the iso in a dvd but it is not booting the system. Any response will be appreciable...

Hi naw_deepak,

First are you sure the DVD is bootable when you downloaded it. You can try booting the downloaded iso in a virtual machine and check. Next question is how are you burning the dvd, granting that there are no issues with the dvd writer hardware, are you burning the the iso as an image file? The next thing to check is bios - check and see if the pc is set to boot from cdrom drive.


Hope this helps.

Well, I have tried with Virtual Machine and successfully installed. But, I have written these iso as a data disk. The dvd writer device is working fine. So, if I write these ISOs as a image disk, will it be created as bootable disk?

It would be really appreciable if you can help in this. Let us assume, I have 5 iso images of same OS in a windows machine. How should I write these as bootable CD/DVD?

Burn the DVD, or CD as an image file, not a data disk.
