    [SOLVED] systemRescueCd not booting ?

    for sure i'm doing something wrong, but i'm unable to find it

    i've downloaded and burned a cd with "systemRescueCd", but i'm unable to boot from it !
    i've burned it whit K3B, and also with "wodim" from console, but two differents pc refuse to boot from it.
    the bios(es) boot order is ok, the cd contains the following directories:

    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-10-30 01:03 bootdisk
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-08-01 08:47 grub4dos
    drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2008-10-30 01:04 isolinux
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-10-26 13:19 ntpasswd
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-10-26 13:19 syslinux
    -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 206774272 2008-10-30 01:03 sysrcd.dat
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 45 2008-10-30 01:04 sysrcd.md5
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 876 2008-08-01 08:47 usbstick.htm
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2008-10-30 01:03 version

    the cd is a rewritable one, but it should not make any difference

    let me be more clear: the pc(s) display the message "booting from cd" the cd led blinks, then appeard the message "failure" (as if the cd is not bootable or not present) and the boot continues with hd (grub)

    thank you for any help !

    Did you burn it as an image file? In k3b, you would go to Tools -> Burn CD Image... and browse to where your ISO file is.
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).

    yes, in K3b i've choosed "burn cd image" and, in another try, from console :
    wodim dev=/dev/hdc -v systemrescuecd-x86-1.1.1.iso

    Sometimes it does make a difference. Try a record once CD-R. I have had similar problems with rewritable media.

    no joy with the "beta", so downloaded and burned (on rw-cd) the previous one (1.1.0) ... it boots like a charme
