I tried changing the bios to first try booting from CD, taht didn’t work. What do i dio?

did you jsut burn the ISO onto a CD. or did you burn a cd from the ISO?

shold run directly from windows if i am correct.

Did you download a ISO-image ?

You need your cd-buring software to burn it onto the CD as a ISO, not just burn the downloaded file to a CD as a file. If you have any documentation for your burning software (manual, helpfile) look around for ‘creating bootable CDs’.

If your burning software does not support this (and assuming you have a windows machine) you can get a great free burning package here:

EDIT: Altaken beat me to it :slight_smile:

did you just drag the .iso file onto a CD or did you choose file->burn disc image [or similar] to burn it?
