Hi there, due to a crash I had to format my drive and re-install Linux; however I did not have a Linux Mint installation dvd and ended up installing Ubuntu 12.04. I know, I know ... should have asked sooner! I have in the meantime downloaded the .iso for Linux Mint 13 but now I don't know how to make an installation dvd with the image. The iso has been burned to dvd but it won't boot.
Please assist as I really want to run with Linux Mint 13 MATE.
Thanks in advance Vincent ...

Might be stating the obvious but have you definitely burnt the .iso as an image and not just copied it? did you check the md5sum before burning? You don't state what method/software you've tried but there's no shortage of software out there suitable for the job. (burn as slow as possible too)
If that still fails is it possible to try booting from a USB? I've done both and they're both pretty painless, if you're not getting to an installation screen something's gone wonky with the burn process or at least that's what it sounds like . . . .
Edit: possible it's a corrupt torrent, make sure you get it from the mint site and you shouldn't go wrong.
After a lot of frustration and struggling I am now back on Isadora but feels like I'm farming backwards; I would really like to install Maya - can I do it via the terminal or must I download an iso and create a startup disc?
