Re: Problems installing on AMD Athlon 64 system

i burn the isos on windows using nero. ive never had problems.
and ive burnt debian (various platforms), fedora (various),
red hat images once upon a time, turbolinux, gentoo, freebsd
openbsd etc....

winrar should be able to open the iso's in windows or use iso
buster. further pre-burn testing might including using daemontools
or vmware to mount the cd images (vmware allowing you to test
them for booting... although not amd64 i suppose. but it should
just boot the kernel and the kernel will then say. no sorry
64bit only).

I'm trying to install sarge amd64 on AMD Athlon 64 system and making
zero progress: none of the CDs I burned would boot, so I followed the

boot manager menu, selected the CDROM drive with the Debian image end
got "IO Error".  I know the hardware can run 64 bit Linux, it has Red
Hat installed, but I prefer Debian. Any suggestions? I'd be most

How sure are you of your burn process? I know for absolute sure that the
amd64 Net Install iso burned by my P4 box with K3B's "Tools->CD->Burn CD
Image" works because that's how Debian got on this machine.

Can you burn with a different machine? Can you burn a CD that will boot
other machines?
