Package: install
Version: N/A; reported 2004-03-20
Severity: normal

Downloaded Debian Installer Beta 3 from
http://www.dk.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/, the 100MB image for
i386. Checked the md5sum, it matches. 

I have downloaded the .iso twice and written it to two blank CD, one R
and the other RW, both fail to boot on this one machine. I booted and
run Knoppix 3.2 succesfully. I dowloaded Knoppix 3.3 and wrote it on
the same cd-writer I used for the installer cd, this also boots and

So, this computer can boot all other bootable cd I had, and I can
write OK cds on my CD-burner. Thus I conclude that
sarge-i386-netinst.iso somehow is defective, this BIOS can not boot

Info on the host where the CD won't boot:

Motherboard: ASUS A7V
ASUS A7V ACPI BIOS revision 1004C

The following collected with Knoppix 3.3.

 #218032 - Descarga CD's con jigdo
 #239078 - install: Beta3, BIOS does not boot CD
 #239290 - Can not boot the CD at all

d-i and debian CDs have seen lots of development (including a stable
release and several etch betas) since the last traffic on these bugs,
so I'm closing these - the reported problems should all be fixed by
now. If you're still experiencing problems, please re-open or open a
new bug against newer versions.
