How Do I Burn Iso Image?

Question

I have DigitalMediaPlus v 7.5 that came preloaded on an HP xw4300 workstation. I wish to burn the iso image file from Knoppix to make a bootable CD. The dialog for browse to image file offers 3 extensions. ISO is not one of them. I select my iso image file anyway.

 

The burn process appears to go OK. When I try to boot to this CD, however, I get the message "Operating system missing".

 

I assume that the apparent operation of the Data Module is a lie. What do I do to burn a bootable iso image.

Are you sure that the original image is bootable?Not all images are.

When you have a bootable disc it boots to something that is on the disc.If the image is bootable the info should be on the disc and it should boot.

 

I looked at that and it seems what you're trying to do is burn a Linux distribution to disc and boot it.

If you right click the file do you see anything about burning the image in the box that comes up?

All Linux distros are bootable iso - all you have to do is put in a blank CD and then double click on the iso icon and disc copier will kick in and burn the CD for you.

 

You don't do anything to the file (open it, extract it, format the CD - NOTHING at all)

The iso image downloaded from knoppix is supposed to be bootable. The download file is accurate. I checked it with the md5 checker (Microsoft fciv.exe).

In the Roxio Data Module program, with the iso filename placed in the contents box, a right-click offers a single item: "Remove". that's it.

Honestly - just double click on it and EMC will automatically write it to disc (and it will be bootable if the original one was)

To add a bit of information.......

 

When you double click on the .iso file, it will automatically open Disk Copier and you will use that to burn the disk.

 

At least that usually works. If your computer is set to open .iso files automatically with another program, that will open instead. If it's a burning program, you can use that to burn the disk.

 

Or you can open Disk Copier and find the .iso file on your computer as the 'source' and use Disk Copier to burn the program.
