Thread: Can I burn CDs if running opensuse from a usb stick?

  1. #1

    Default Can I burn CDs if running opensuse from a usb stick?

    I'm going to boot up a desktop (that has a cd burner) from a USB stick of openSUSE 11.3. Will I be able to burn an iso (that's on the desktop's harddrive) to CD, i.e. can I use the cd burner, if I've booted from a USB stick?

    Never tried.
    I guess it should be so long as you don't do a verify. May also depend on RAM.
    Yes.. I'm guessing.

    Thanks. What program do I use for this (I've never burned from opensuse before)?

    Thanks but I think there's a problem with my usb stick's download. My md5 checksum is: 100d967c9576009faf94810674d5b0a0

    That's for openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso

    I can't seem to find that md5 checksum on the opensuse website. There is a 586 one.

    Thanks. I redownloaded it and this time it verified to that md5. I'm going to try it again and pray it works, if not, I'm not sure how I'm going to install opensuse 11.3.

    Why not install from the USB stick?

    Oh, I will. But first I had to get the correct one on to a USB stick and second, I'm going to boot into the USB stick, grab all my data off the old hard drive while booted into the USB stick (so if the drive dies while doing that, I'll still have a usable OS running), and then I'll install from the USB stick.
