View Full Version : [xubuntu] Trying to boot from the CD.

April 6th, 2011, 05:53 PM
Hello and greetings from Venezuela.

First off, my english is not good and i will try to do my best.

I am not a Linux user, some time ago (like a year or something) i used xubuntu to boot into any PC and explore windows files in it, now i need to delete a folder which is called GFI (a program where i can administrate the use of USB ports at my work in any workstation) in a workstation which is outside the domain, for other reasons i cant get that computer again at my work so i need to delete that folder outside of here because that person can use any USB port.

With xubuntu i can navigate without problems and delete that folder, sadly i lost that CD and now i am trying to burn a new one, i downloaded and burded two xubuntu versions (10.10 and 6.06) but i cant boot from the CD, i dont know why.

Can someone explain me how the thing works? thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums :-)

First of all you need to check the MD5SUM of your downloaded image.


Then check the disc for any defects.


Burn the disc at the lowest possible speed. I burn at 4x.

If the problem persists, please explain what happens exactly when you try to boot the CD? Make sure your bios boot order is properly set to boot the CD at first place.
