Help...trying to install SuSe
I found this forum on google after spending the last 24 hours trying to get rid of Windows XP
I downloaded SuSe (and in the meantime also Ubuntu) and burnt it on DVD...my laptop wont read it, cant even open it in XP. Same story with the CD I burnt...and the other one with Ubuntu on it.
I then tried to boot from USB (downloaded UNetbootin)...no luck, it justn doesnt recognise it when booting.
I've set Bios correctly but nothing works
I would so appreciate it if anyone could help, I'm going insane here
Sorry if I posted it on the wrong discussion board!
Thanks for any help.

Are you sure the BIOS settings are correct? The boot sequence should be in the following order: 1) CD/DVD 2) USB 3) Harddisk
Probably the iso files you downloaded are not proper?! You can download a program called md5sum and put it in C:\Windows\System32\ (is that the correct place, have not used windows for a long time.. ). Then open command prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd) TryCode:
Talking of cd burning, have you burned at low speed or at full speed? May be your CD/DVD ROM does not recognise if the CD/DVD is burned with high speed? Try burning at low speed.A candle looses nothing by lighting other candles. - Khalil Zibran.
