Package: debian-cd
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have two older computers with Intel D865GBFLK motherboards (~2003)
and Pentium 4 HT CPU's.  They both have the latest available BIOS
installed.  I would like to put Debian on them.

I have downloaded:


When I put the ISO on a CD-R, it boots correctly.

When I put the ISO on a USB flash drive and boot it:

    isolinux.bin missing or corrupt

The same USB flash drive boots correctly in newer computers.

Memtest86+ 5.01 on a USB flash drive boots correctly in the older

My conclusion is that the ISO is not compatible with the BIOS in the
older computers.

Version: 3:6.03+dfsg1-1


this problem was fixed in isolinux version 3:6.03+dfsg1-1.  As of now,
debian-cds are still affected, the progress for that is tracked
separately in the original Bug report:  https://bugs.debian.org/857597

I've cloned this bug to isolinux so fixed versions can be tracked.
