[solved]Linux mint 9 DVD won't boot.

Post by Cam42 »

Tried three times, 2 discs actually burnt successfully, but neither will boot.
md5sum is perfect, BIOS is set to boot from DVD, but I just get a blinking cursor then into Linux mint 8 (which I installed a while ago)

Any ideas?

Slow down the burn speed?

I burned it at 2.0x, the lowest it'll go.

Where you get the blinking cursor, is it the mint splash screen? What happens when you press Esc? Do you get a menu?

No, it's just a blinking cursor, top-left
nothing happens upon pressing esc

I can confirm that it is most likely a problem with my computer, as I burnt the CD iso, and got the same result.
I'm (somewhat regrettably) marking the thread solved.

Did you just copy the iso to disc, or did you burn it as an image?
