Re: Problems Installing Debian 3.0 r 4

My BIOS will not recognize the installation cd as a boot device. It keeps giving me this message "Boot Device Not Detected, Insert System Disk and Press F1 To Continue...". I have downloaded and burned all of the different cd images and tried to use each one but it still gives me that error message. Am I burning the image wrong? Is there a certain program I should use to burn it? Right now the software I am using to burn the cd images is the default software that comes with windows xp proff, I think it is roxio not sure. I'm hoping someone here can help me find a solution to this.

If I missed something in the installation guide that covers this can you please give me the chapter number or a link.

Thank you.


I am a new user pitty my retardedness.


just to make sure you don't make the "common newbie mistake" with burning iso images: in your burning program (I am not familiar with Roxio) there should be an option to "burn a CD from image file" or similar. You need this, and then select the iso image you downloaded. It is probably not sufficient to just "drag and drop" the .iso file into the list of "files to be burned", because this way you won't get a bootable cd.

Hope that helps,
