LiveCD of CentOS not wanting to work
Is the reason for the errors because my computer is currently running windows and the file systems are incompatible? Do I need to be running Linux in order for a LiveCD to work?
My computer's acting really screwy at the moment and I'm afraid to try again just now. But I will try another time and post the error messages.

Which version of CentOS you have downloaded?
it dropped to the lowest shell.
It looks like you haven't burnded .iso image correctly.
Do not create Bootable or Data CD. .iso images are bootable by default. Select Burn Image to Disk option in your CD/DVD burner package. Burn .iso image as an Image only. Most of Windows based CD/DVD burning packages like Nero, ImgBurn have this option.

Check the following guide for the proper steps to download the ISO file, verify the ISO file integrity, burn the ISO file to disk as an image, then boot with the newly created disk:
You'll also find a link there that gives step by step instructions for burning ISO files with almost 2 dozen different burning applications.
Post back if you still have problems after following all the steps properly.oz
