    Default Will not Boot from CD Rom

    Hi

    I have a new Dimension 4600 from Dell. I burned the iso files onto CDs
    and now I am trying to boot my computer from the cd rom.

    It actually finds the CD and runs through it then fails. I used the
    md5summer.exe to check that the iso files were ok and there were not
    any problems.

    Can anyone help? It seems like there is only a few options I can
    try....

    I also have a toshiba laptop and it didn't like my iso file on the cd
    rom either..

    I have XP installed on both already. I go into the set up and select
    BOOT FROM IDE CD ROM then save and exit. It then attempts to boot from
    the cd.
    Thanks

    You MUST burn the ISO to disk as an image not as a file.
    You also need to download them in binary not ASCII.
