trouble booting to install mandrake 10.1. cdrom.img
hi. i'm trying to install mandrake 10.1(or .5) on to a 5gb partition on my hard drive. i've made the partition using partition magic.
the problem i'm having is with the trying to boot the installation cd. i've made the cdrom.img disk using the rewwritewin program(i didn't have the cdroming file on my cd i had to download it!) and when i restart my computer it boots from the disk and then it gives this message:
Boot failed: please change disks and press a key.....
by the way when i try to boot from the cd it tells me that the disk doesn't contain any bootable material.
i just want to point out that i'm trying to install the 3 cd version linked from the mandrake site.
any one got any suggestions??
