>,< I have trouble burning the ISO Bianca.

Postby digitalzombie on Fri Mar 30, 2007 9:51 pm

Um I dl the Bianca ISO from one of the mirror >,> from distroplanet.com.

I tried to burn the full version as an ISO image using NERO and some other ISO burn program and it didn't work. I did it about 4 times. What's funny is I burn the Window XP iso (legal version) on my CD-Rs and it works so I don't really know what's wrong with the Bianca ISO.

Looking at the burned Bianca cd I can see all the files like boot files and media folders and etc... but it won't run the live disc. T_T It won't even boot up the live disc.

Can someone help me?

I answered you at the end of another thread, but the question was put slightly different there.
Do you have a XP ISO??? Never heard of such an animal :)
It simply does not exist (legally) as far as I know. XP comes on a bootable cd and possbibly you've copied that cd.
I just have to ask you if your computer boots from any CD? Have you tested?
At what speed did you burn?

I also had a little trouble with the Bianca ISO. In my case the the image burn would not finalize when burned in "Track At Once" mode (I would get an error message at the end of the burn about a the disc not finalizing). Burning in "Disk At Once" mode solved it for me (I also found that finalizing the Track At Once CD after the burn yielded a useable disk).

Note that I downloaded and burned over a dozen Linux ditro ISO images and Bianca was the only one I had this problem with.

Try burning the CD again in Disk-At-Once mode and burn at lower speed.

And there is a very legitimate reason for having a Windows ISO. If your original Windows CD is an older one and you want to update it with the latest service pack(s) you can "Slipstream" the service packs into a copy of your original disk and burn a new copy. I have ISO images of XP Pro with SP2 and 2000 Pro with SP4 for this reason.

Hi Lolo Uila

I have slipstreamed Windows XP CD's as well, but that is not the same as an ISO. I would have to make an ISO from the slipstreamed CD, which is possible to do but tricky and has a high failure ratio. An ISO is a single file (as you know)
My nero warned me that I had to close the disc (I think that's what it said) because there was a lot of MB to burn.
Has to do with the capacity of the CD compared to the amount of data to be burned.
