I have tried 3 different dvd burning programs, 3 different dvd's, my dvd drive is connected properly, and I my BIOS is setup properly, yet I still get the same message when I attempt to boot: Boot disk failure, please insert a system boot disk and press enter. What might be causing this issue?

Thank you for reply. OK, I'll try to burn it once more... But I have a question, can I check if is DVD volume okay? md5sum /dev/hdb (dvd) normally give me different nr. than md5sum *.iso, I also tried to mount iso and compare it with /dev/hdb, but md5sum doesn't like directory... Any idea? & again, is pppoeconf included?

Problems...

Right, The first is normal... I get it also, and is a routine startup error. No problem. Now the second... Looks like the installation did not fully complete, or perhaps completed with errors. It should at the very least give you a 'failed to start X' error. The rest should be in place. Check your dvd again... Perhaps you need to burn another one after the dvddive was fixed. Make sure about the MD5 sum. I ran into serious trouble after giving faulty disks to my friends! Cheers,

OK, I'm back! :) After fixing my DVD burner issue, I have another problem, namely I get two annoying errors: * Assembling MD arrays... failed (no arrays found in config file or automatically). * Detecting hardware... FATAL: error inserting i8xx-tco (/lib/modules/2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64/kernel/drivers/char/watchdog/i8xx-tco.ko): no such device After this it stops on the prompt and ask for password. I also wonder why there is no pppoeconf and how can i setup DSL without it?

Hmm, it looks I have problem

Finally I have new sound card, but I have problem with boot :( I get messages: Unknown keyword in config file Unknown keyword in config file Unknown keyword in config file Unknown keyword in config file Could not find kernel image: linux boot: Then stops here. I can boot another DVD's from this device. md5sum is OK. What's wrong?

Hi, I've seen this happen on occasion too. In my case it was a bad IDE cable. Maybe a CMOS Reset (if anything else fails) could help as well. Did you burn the DVD's on the same system you're trying to boot them on? Cheers Raphael ;)

Boot?

Can you boot to other CD/DVD's? Any other Linux disks perhaps? Let us know! Cheers
