Thread: Problems with installing from DVD

    Default Problems with installing from DVD

    Hi!
    I burned opensuse 11.0 to a dvd. When I open the dvd under windows it starts the installation process, but it won't boot / install from dvd once I turn the computer on. I tried it with a different laptop and it works fine there. Any suggestions? (Booting from a CD works fine)

    Processor: mobile AMD Athlon xp 2000+
    RAM: 700 MB

    Thanks!

    try Smart Boot Manager helps get recalcitrant disks to boot. failing that, did you do a media check ?

    I have opensuse 10.3 installed. How do I get the file on teh disk. Using the command line gives me the response "no authorization".

    I sent you my e-mail.
    Can I use this with only one cd drive when I want to install the OS from a dvd?
    And what do you mean by media check?

    yep, the program loads in to memory, so just remove the disc once booted from it, put in new disk,select cd drive & away you go
