won’t boot install disc

won’t boot install disc

#1 Post by redbaron62 » 2011-07-03 01:41

I am trying to install debian on a compaq presario 6000. When I try to boot off of the first dvd it just won’t do anyting most of the time; one flat line keeps blinking. The first time that I booted it, there was that line that starts with isolinux, but that was only there the first time. now nothing shows up. That first time, I got several error messages:

EDD: error 8000 reading sector 1360652

and the same thing 5 times over with different numbers at the end. Do these mean that the disc is corrupt in some way, or that the dvd reader is broken or something else?

here is what I got for the file. (I’ve never used this tool before; I couldn’t figure out how to check the disk)

unfortunately I cannot find any way to confirm this (the ones online are for 6.0.2.1)

There is a md5sum file at the location where you downloaded the .iso. The number in the file and result of the md5sum on the .iso should match.

Edit: If they match, make sure your BIOS is set to boot from the dvd drive.

I looked online for them before where I downloaded them (http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/6.0 . 86/bt-dvd/) and they were not the same files that I downloaded. The ones that I downloaded were like: debian-6.0.1a-i386-DVD-1.iso.torrent and the ones that were on the site were like: debian-6.0.2.1-i386-DVD-1.iso.torrent. I would not be surprised if it is not set to boot off the dvd, but that would make me curious as to why it won’t boot windows (which is still on there); that is what it does if there is no disk.

Another thing I did is try booting off the disk on the computer that I made the dvd on, and it worked fine.

I agree with you. Try to set the boot order in the BIOS to boot the DVD drive first.

I don’t understand the issue with Windows not booting.

Maybe bad DVD reader (drive)?

I cannot tell if the md5sums are correct; but I am assuming that they are given that I downloaded it twice and got the same md5sum.

Basically that is correct.

I have a similar problem. I’m trying to install Debian squeeze on my desktop computer. DVD disc burned with disk utility on macintel won’t boot just like USB stick created with UNetbootin.
I can’t check the DVD, because I have a DVD drive only on my desktop computer (the one I’m trying to install Debian to).
USB flash drive is ok, because it boots on my friend’s eeePC, BIOS config is fine too, because it boots ubuntu from USB stick and from a DVD.

So the problem seems to be on the Debian side.

If you need some help to solve your problem, you should write most information on your computer and on what you did (where you downloaded DVD image, and so forth).

Error 8000 — Installing Ubuntu on an old PC with bootable DVD

Is there an ISO file with less than 700 MB?
I cannot put the ISO file ‘ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386’ with 707 MB on CD having only 700 MB. I tried to make a bootable DVD but when booting PC says:

EDD: Error 8000 reading sector 50

(and then 51,52,53 etc) and then boot failed ...

Try to burn with another CD but do not use CD-RW (it might be a faulty burned disc).

You can find CD releases for 12.04 here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/ But you do need an 80 minutes CD (those are a bit over 700M).

  • Do you have an USB port on the machine? If so see: «How to create a bootable USBstick on Windows» as an alternative.
  • Another method: download the server and manually add the desktop. Server is 665M so will fit.

Oh and as of 12.10 a CD is no longer an option.

You can try to install the 11.10 an older version of Ubuntu (695MB), and then update & upgrade & dist-upgrade the system.

Scenario:
Windows XP took a plunge & don’t have original CD to reinstall. So decided to install a new OS to replace the broken windows XP. I downloaded the ISO image for Linux Mint Qiana and tried a USB boot using the Universal USB Installer to no avail.

Current Situation:
Burned Linux ISO image to DVD and trying to boot from CD however I get a «error 8000 reading sector . No default UI or configuration found»

Questions
:
Is it the DVD disk?
Do I need to use a proper burn ISO software? If so, any suggestions?
Do i need to try sth like this? (Click here for link)
Is it a compatibility issue?
What else can I do?

I personally use PowerISO and its free. I’ve never had any problems after burning an iso image.

Not sure what the problem may be but Linux mint comes in both 64-bit and 32-bit iso images. Obviously your P4 system would use the 32-bit iso image. May want to verify you downloaded the correct image.

That being said with your system and the amount of RAM it has you may want to explore lighter weight Linux Distros. Don’t get me wrong Mint is a great distro but with your system specs it may be sluggish or may not never tried it on my P4 system.

http://lubuntu.net/
You may want to check out Lubuntu which is made with a much lighter weight desktop UI and may have better performance on your system. Lubuntu should be be a pretty automatic install.

I still have my old P4 system and used to run SliTaz Linux. Very minimal distro but it ran really well on that older hardware. I was surprised how fast it ran. My system has 2.5gb RAM but don’t think it would make much of a difference with SliTaz as it’s made to run on minimal hardware. SliTaz will take a little bit of knowledge to get running as you will have to partition your HDD for your swap/root/home directories but i believe most of the information you would need is on their website. SliTaz only comes in 32-bit

Much thanks for responding to this thread. The problem was with the DVD burner program I used, I’ve used your suggestion but by that time Id already figured an install via USB. but PowerISO did work.

yea, I downloaded a 32-bit ofcourse and its running the installation now..I’ll try it out and if it doesnt work for this machine then I’ll check Lubuntu
