problems with installing trough windows 7

Postby Kjartan » Tue Sep 15, 2009 6:07 am

Im trying to try this distro out, but I'm having problems both running the cd in boot, the computer restarts itself after I choose language at the grub bootscreen so I decided to try out installing trough windows and keeping both windows 7 and mint , But it fails in the Creating image phase, after it gets to 100% a box pops up saying "Could not access the CD, Make sure other applications are not using it and try again"
happens even if I try to use daemon tools to mount the image and install trough that.. and no matter how often I Retry, it always happens in 100%

any Ideas?

There should be a disk checking function that you can get to when the CD first boots up. Have you verified that your CD is ok?
