How to install?
« on: May 07, 2010, 05:16:11 am »
I downloaded the LinuxMCE-8.10-beta2 torrent found at this page: newbielink:http://www.linuxmce.org/index.php/download [nonactive]

I then burned it to a DVD, and now it won't boot from the disc.

I'm not really sure what to do. I've never had a problem installing a linux distro before...

Try downloading and burning the latest snapshot, see if that makes any difference http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/

Also, make sure you follow the installation instructions carefully http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810

You may also try burning at a slower speed.  I had the same problem, burn reported fine, but wouldn't boot.  After burning the same image at a slower speed it worked fine.

Also use the latest snapshot that is 3,7Gb, the others are faulty

You may try installation using scripts. IMHO it's the best way to install LinuxMCE. I tried DVD installation of 0810 only once and it wasn't success.

Re: How to install Latest Snapshot via DVD burning ?

We should have a sticky thread for burning the latest snapshot.

Note, its always best to use re-writeable media unless you need more coasters.

If a DVD or CD doesn't boot after burning, then there is most likely a problem with the media or hardware.

Also check the BIOS settings to make sure that you have booting from cdrom enabled and check the boot order.

I concur. I remember once changing CD/DVD drive for it to work.
