CD Boot Problem - Debian

sounds like the cd media you burned has an error. this can be caused by a manufacturing error on the cd. burn another cdrom and give it a try. also, try not burning at full speed. sometimes people burn disks that are rated 12x at 30x+ and will make cd's that behave like you describe.

    Subject: CD Boot Problem


    I am trying to install Debian on my computer. I used jigdo to get the iso.
    Then I burned the iso to cd. When I try to boot from the cd, the drive
    spins up then spins down a lot. Sometimes I get a message from the BIOS
    that there was a boot failure. Other times, It starts booting, but then I
    get a message from the software on the cd that there was an error and that I
    should try again. When I try to access the cd on another os, It is
    accessible, but it spins up and down a lot. Also when I try to small text
    files on the cd sometimes there is a long delay (45 sec or more). The drive
    works well with other cds though. I'm not sure what is wrong.

    By "other cds", do you mean other burned cds, or regular pressed cds?

    I've seen some rather old CD drives (usually found on pentium and
    earlier computers) have problems with CD-R/CD-RW cds while working fine
    with regular cds.

    Another suggestion would be to check the block size if you are burning
    an iso image.
