On my CD disk for the Mint version attempts on 2 computers fail to boot.

 

Opening the CD there are the following listed:-

 

boot

efi

KNOPPIX

autorun

autorun

autorun

cdrom

index

 

The Linux info says I should not have an ISO file in the disc- that's OK then but have some folders such as casper and isolinux which I don't.

 

Can anyone please inform me if this is the bootable disc or not - thanks.

It doesn't look like the structure of any Linux Mint disk I've got.  I know that KNOPPIX is another distribution altogether? :scratchhead:

 

Here is a screenshot showing the directory structure of my DVD of Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon (x64).

And Mint 15...

Thanks for your response.

 

You're right, my error - I made 2 discs some time ago and forgot that I had Knoppix and Mint 15. Both failed to boot.

 

Checking what's on the Mint 15 CD it is exactly the list you have.  I have just re-run it and get to the screen Mint Boot and then a black screen with the message:-

 

1.6402911 KERNAL PANIC - NOT SYNCING: UFS: Unable to mount root fs in unknown block (2,0)   (1st 4 words not capitals)

 

I imagine this will mean something to you - please advise - thanks.

Sorry I don't know what that message relates to when booting from a live DVD.  Reading around, one possibility is that the DVD you burned is faulty.  I note you refer to a 'CD' - recent versions of Mint won't fit on a CD and that could be the issue.

Like jonuk76 has stated!

 

What version of Mint are you trying to create a bootable CD of? If you don't have a DVD burner, you can use a Flash drive (move it's contents to another drive of folder) & use Universal USB Installer to create a Live USB Flash drive, you can boot, test the OS & install from there. Follow instructions closely.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
