I did the sha1sum on the burnt disk, it was good, but the dvd doesn't

autoboot though, and should.
if sha1sum check is good, it should boot.

if box it will not boot in has old bios, then dvd may not be recognized,
while a cd is.

I just tried it with several other mixed dvd's and cd's that were supposedly bootable, and they all did, except the F10 dvd. I just burnt another, same brand of media as the Fu9 I have installed on it, and from the same spindle of HP dvd-r disks, just for grins. And it won't boot in that drive either.
The bios does look at the disk, it just doesn't like what it sees I guess.

when box boots, press <scroll lock> to hold bios notice and write it down.
check mainboard site for bios upgrade.

This bios ignores that, I had a hell of a time catching it and memorizing it.

Down with a cold, I haven't really felt like doing a whole lot.
take 2 aspirin, 2 sudafed, and a pint of bourbon. may not help rid your
cold, but your nose will not be running and you really will not mind.

I learned decades ago, that when I mix alcohol with a cold, its an instant strept throat & 2 weeks on Erythromycin 500's, 3x/day.

some drawer and door handles for an entertainment center I'm building

Naw, just a place for all her media, a 42" tv, the tuner/amp, dvd player and somewhere along the line a decent turntable so I can rip about 300 pounds of 12" lp's accumulated over a 34 year period of teaching primary school kids something about music. 8 drawers in the bottom of it, 2 big enough for lp's on edge. I don't think they will hold them all either, but...
but my shop has very little heat and the current temp is about 2C.
Being diabetic, that equals some darned cold feet. :(
lay cardboard on floor where working.

Don't have any that big, but I have noted that a layer of wood chips from the planer or jointer sure help. Then the missus wanders in and ask's me when am I going to clean this mess up. ;)p I don't think she connects the sawdust to the slowly dwindling stack of cherry, and the slowly growing piece of furniture. Sorta like carving a big block of granite into an elephant, you hammer and chisel away that which is not part of an elephant. Eventually, somebody has got to run a broom or vacuum. Two vacs in there, but tied to the saw and sander ATM. And the next time I dump them will overflow a contractor cleanup bag, the big black ones.

even if you are not bald headed, where a knit cap. cardboard helps keep coldness away from feet. cap stops body
heat from rapid escape from brain area. :o)

You will usually find me in a tan confederate style cap, you can't get the sawdust out of a knit. Slap this one on your knee and its as good as new. :)
Same on I was in last summer while building this garage, see at:


That is this box.

Humm, I think I've wandered off topic again, blame it on a senior moment or whatever.

Thanks again.
my glad.


peace out.

to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it;
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.
