Help with CentOS installation...!!! Urgent.....!!!!!

Post by edge » 2006/05/18 01:59:39

hi guys, i have a problem trying to install CentOS 4 in my machine. I downloaded CentOS 4 from a torrent file. After that, i could see a .iso file . it weighs aprox. 2.1 Gb. What i did, was to burn it into a DVD, but when i restarted my computer (before that, i configured BIOS to activate CD as boot device), it didnt work and loaded Windows XP. Some help please in order to figure it out....

Regards

When you burned the DVD what did you end up with on the DVD?????

If a single file then you burn the ISO image file to the media and not the ISO image (there is a difference).

If multiple files and directories then maybe you burned the DVD incorrectly, most DVD burning applications have a way of correctly burning the ISO image to the media. Please review the help menu for your burning application and find out how to do this.

Maybe this will help; http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/howtoburn.html
