    the iso comes across the net as one big continuous file...however the
    contents of the DVD must be many many different files in many different
    folders..

    look at the DVD(s) you burned, i gonna bet they are all one file...

    somewhere in your DVD burning software you need to set it up to "Burn
    DVD ISO Image" or something like that...

    however, if the DVD(s) show up as many files then there is at least one
    other possible problem (that i know of): your bios is not set up to boot
    from the DVD/CD drive (you have to enter the bios setup BEFORE the OS
    boots....i do that here with F2, i don't know how to do it with your
    machine....WATCH closely when it first begins to boot, it will probably
    tell you..

    good luck,

    Hi,

    I am not a newbie , i have burned the .iso and the files are all inside the cd. The problems is not from the cd because i cant also boot the dvd in vmware and i have download it twice.

    I too am having the same issue.

    I gave up on the torrent download because of speed - unusual - and went for the HTTP version. Using K3B I have a non-bootable disk. I've tried the .ISO file and the DVD on VirtualBox and it too reports that it's non-bootable.

    As I'm approaching my bandwidth limit for this month, I'd like to know whether the file on the server is giving me a rum deal, or I should try downloading again.

    I am also having a problem with the DVD. I downloaded it with torrent on opensuse 10.3 and created the iso DVD with K3B, checksums match, but it still won't boot. I also Downloaded the 64bit for my Desktop ,but have not tried it due to the issues with the 32bit download. and yes my Boot preference is DVD first then HDD.

    I downloaded with Ktorrent, DVD's don't work. Then I download via HTTP, checksums match and it still won't boot.

    Have you set the permissions on the .iso file to execute before you burned the DVD or CDs?

    Here is more detail. Right click on the .iso file icon. This will bring up a window. Click on the permissions tab. Click the check box for 'is executable". Then burn your CD/DVD.
