The noob ?

Wed May 21, 2008 8:15 pm

Ok, I downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit 8.0.4. Checksums were good, so I burned, as iso, to separate dvd's, using nero.
Boot to dvd, and both give me an A prompt. I don't even have a floppy drive.
I've had a few, it's bedtime, and I don't feel like googling this out.
What have I done wrong? Goofed up in nero?

Thanks.

They're CD isos. Does burning it to different media make a difference?

I wondered about that too, but I didn't have any spare cd's lying around.

Some DVD or CD drives just won't like it.
