If you want to add a pic rename it as something.jpg.txt as .jpg might not want to add here.

All files is something.iso only no rar no zip only ISO.
Code: Select all
"Sabayon-x86_64-1.0-BusinessEdition.iso"
Beta "SabayonLinux-x86_64-3.4.Loop3a.iso"
OLD CD "SabayonLinux-x86_64-3.3b.miniEdition.iso"


Torrent client if anygood has a "force recheck" or something similar to check it and make sure you have the full part 100% and only once the torrent program = yes it is 100% then you can go and burn the say 4x dvd at 4x or slower speed with old school default settings nothing fancy and have it verify the burn , takes longer but the you know it is good and will work on anything.

Might also want to check to see if your dvd drive has a firmware update somewhere on the internet as it might fix bugs that it has.

Next for hd make sure you have all the cable connected propperly and or 1hd+1cd/dvd drive as some hd's does not like to share a cable. Also try changing cable as they do get bad or dmaged and does not show it.

Windows should see the hd but might not format it.
Fix:
UBCD

This has hard disk maintanance software as well as partition and virus software :)

OR
If you can still get into windows then using Acronis disk director demo or paid for = very nice and safe and will be able to fix your hd be it funky partitions / overlapping or defrag or resize it just works. If this has checked it and found it good then there is another problem.

Vmware or virtualbox = about the same thing except virtualbox is free and it does not make my laptop unhappy in any OS , I had some bumps with vmware. We all can help with virtualbox and some with vmware.

Starting the dvd and then having funny error messages = modules and or stuff not loading or too much loading.
Fix:
There is a readme file on the iso / dvd and it has the cheat codes.
So when starting dvd use up / down arrows to select the boot method and the press F5 and add say noagp or nokvm or vga=791 or xdriver=nvidia or res=1024x768 before the --

If you can post the motherboard name and model + some other info here about what you have then
we can suggest and or tell you what options to load etc . and makes it easier to help.

If you still end up with bugs after this then plz post and we will help.

NERO = Bugs when burning = do not use nero if possible.

Which Nero, Windows, NeroLinux or both?

I have been using NeroLinux both version 2 & 3 since it was released, & have had no problems except for the rare bad media failure during a burn.
