Title: It stops on booting!
Post by: joanlui on September 26, 2004, 10:51:59 PM
Hi...I put the ISO of bart on a CD-RW. Maybe I need to put it on a CD-R ? ;D

That is often the issue.

Some drives just do not like CDRs :(

I assume also you are using your burner application to 'burn an ISO to disk"  not so much as "make a data disk" with and ISO file on it?
Had to ask......

cheers

I used my burn application to "burn an ISO to disk". Is it wrong? Maybe I had to burn it slower (4x for example)? I remember to you, I used a rewritable CD...Did I have to use a recordable one? ???

Burn ISO to disk is correct   :)

I would try a CDR at 4x.  Just to make sure all works.
Most new drives will read CDRW's ok, especialy if they are a burner.

Maybe also incude here some more detail as to when it fails.
Do you get "press any key to boot from CD?" message after BIOS?

Cheers :)

Did you set the bootorder in the bios to boot from cd first?

Sometimes cdrw's won't boot. Try a cdr.

Did you try the cdrw on another system?

The bootorder in the BIOS is ok. I remasterized the CDRW at 4x, but the error message, after boot from CD, is the same..."File \i386\system32\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. The error code is 12800. Setup cannot continue. Press anu key to exit"

Solutions?
