Re: unable to install



just use roxio cd burner, and just click on the iso image and it will creat a bootable cd for
you. i couldnt create bootable cd after a month and I think we should read a book for that .
You can search on google to find out more about creating ISO image and making boot disk.

I have tried both ways, so I have both examples you pose.  I have fours CDs
that have a single .ISO file, and I have four where I used WinImage to
unpack the ISO files into multiple files that are then burned on the CD's.
I thought unpacking the ISO images would create bootable CD's that I could
use to install over the existing OS (win98).

I have checked the MD5 Checksums, yet I still can't install off the CD's that I have burned. I have unpacked the ISO's and tried to install. I have burned the ISO's straight onto CD's, but neither are recognized at bootup, and neither install the OS to the machine. WHAT IS THE ISSUE?!!!!!!!!



One common problem among people who haven't done this before is that you may be burning the ISO onto the CD as a file, rather than an image. Forgive me if this is not the case, it's not clear from your message. When burning an ISO image, you normally have to select a special command to transfer the image, rather than just copy the file onto the CD.

When you put those CD's into CD-rom drive on a working computer, what do you see? Do you see a single file named *.iso? Or do you see a whole bunch of files and directories?
