Thread: Installation issues

  1. #1

    Default Installation issues

    Hi everyone,im experiencing some difficulties when trying to install Opensuse 11.1.
    Here's the problem:
    I dowloaded the iso file for the 64 bit pc.
    I mounted the image using Daemon Tools and my system prompted my to restart my computer.So now im stuck because I dont know where the source file is located on my computer and I cant burn the Iso file to a dvd because I dont have acces to the file anymore.This is because I cant boot in eiter operating systems now.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Thnx

    You need to set the CD/DVD as 1st boot device in your BIOS. And boot from the DVD.

    hmmmm...where did you get the idea to mount it?

    on http://software.opensuse.org/ (where you can download the
    community's iso image) there is a five step checklist, seems you got
    through four and stopped reading/following:

    ----------quote----------------
    1 - 3 <snipped>
    4. Start Download Here
    5. How to Proceed
    1. After having successfully downloaded the ISO image(s), burn the
    image(s) with your favorite burning application to a DVD or CD. Please
    do not burn a data DVD/CD, but rather choose the option to burn an ISO
    image. More information
    2. Boot from the DVD or CD. In case your computer does not
    automatically boot from CD/DVD, open the BIOS setup to allow booting
    from CD or DVD. <MORE snip>
    ----------end quote----------------

    i suggest you begin again, after reading the link caf4926 gave you..

    sorry, i have NO idea how to recover from what you did, other than
    burn a CD/DVD and boot from it and see what happens....

    do you have a backup of the system you began with? i can't tell you
    how to protect the personal data you might have on that system
    now....but, maybe others can....hmmmmm....maybe ....hmmmm, i do not
    know...sorry..

    What I mean is. The computer, what is it? What was on it originally and how do you think it got there?

    I dont have acces to root xterm or terminal.
    Because I cant get into Linux.
    Only the Opensuse local installer.

    Thnx
