Mandrake 10 does not detect installation CD


I have downloaded the official ISO for Mandrake 10 and I burned all three of them into CDs.

I insert the CD 1 under XP then it reboot my system, which is a normal thing, but then it does not want to boot up from the CD.

I create the boot diskette and restart my system again. Now, it boot the CD but there is an error msg something like this:

CD inside the CD-ROM is not Mandrake Installation Disk.
Insert another disk?

Yes ---------- No ----------- Back

I have tried all the 3 CDs but none of them work.

help please...

thanks

did you burn the ISO's properly? IE: you must burn as image, not just put the ISO's themselves on a CD.

Is there any other way to install mandrake 10 besides downloading and burning the ISO to CD? Installation through the internet maybe?

thanks

Mandrake 10 Install CD

Did you get an answer to your question ? I am having the same problem. I have successfully install Mandrake 10 but when I try to install an RPM it asks for the Install CD but won't recognize the CD. I am beginning to wonder if CD #1 is really the Install CD.


Thanks,
Jim Reynolds

Perhaps something happened during the download or the burning of the cd, you could visit http://www.xplinux.biz/shop/ and buy the distro of your choice. Thats what I did, no burner ,mandrake cost like 10 bucks. Just a thought. I had no install problems
