    Unhappy Newbee needs help


    i recently downloaded a product named "Ping v2.01.iso" and associated programs so that I could create bootable CD/DVD's for restoring PC's to a pre-determined point in time. Having followed all instructions I have encountered a problem when tring a restore. Booted from DVD and got the following message

    Could not find kernel image : Kernel
    boot:

    Have checked the DVD and it contains the following
    BOOT.CAT
    HDA
    HDA1.000
    HDA1.001
    HDA1.002
    HDA1.003
    HDA1.FIR
    INITRD.GZ
    ISOLINUX.BIN
    ISOLINUX.CFG
    KERNEL.TXT

    Am I doing something wrong ? I.ve tested the image and that appears to be fine, Ive also re-created the bootable image several times, same problem encountered upon attempting restore

    Welcome to the forums, crochunter!

    Check this HowTo article for making sure you properly burned the file to the disk:

    If the disk was burned correctly, let us know and we'll go from there.

    Thanks for quick response OZ.
    can confirm image burned not copied. Nero-7 used.

    Am recreating entire process from scratch and will use Nero-8 with all default settings except write speed as suggested. Forgot to mention before I'm using "mkisofs" with the following settings to create bootable disk as instructed with the accompanying documentation received

    mkisofs -r -b ioslinux.bin -boot-info-table -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -o ../FileName.iso .

    In my case "FileName" has been replaced with D610 (Dell NB)

    Will post update later today to advise on current status

    Problem appears to be resolved.
    issues "kernel.txt" should have been "kernel" without extension & "isolinux.bin" needed to be created with a flat text editor and not copied & pasted.

    thanks again for replying
