    Question installing the latest VectorLinuxfrom ISO does not work


    Hi!
    I burned the latests vectrolinux and tired to boot from the CD. I got the message that this was not a boot disk and the system continued with the HD boot.
    Now, I looked at the disk using file manager. Th edist is readable, contains autorun etc and all the files (I think) necessary for the installation.
    My CD drive works because I can boot from my CD zenwalk or knoppix.
    Is there a problem with the ISO posted on the vectorlinux site?
    THX!

    Get the .md5 file and check it.

    The md5 should be where the iso is on the vector site. I just recently installed vector on my older pc so I don't know what's up here. What program did you use for burning the iso to cd? I advise using:

    Those liinks are both for windows, if you're on linux trying to install a different linux, use k3b, it checks the md5 and burns the iso for you. It's a very easy app. Hope that helps.

    Yep, it definitely sounds like either a bad ISO file was used, a bad burn took place, or a bad blank CD was used.
