Re: Really Stupid 7.1 install question

Just dug one up (bootable CD) to ensure that I hadn't lost my mind. Even went back and re-checked the CRC all are ok ...

Is there a way to make a the installer fire up without booting into it or, failing that is there a way to create a bootable CD that I can verify (bear in mind that my burner is on a Windows box - yeah yeah yeah ).

I will even settle for a method of making the boot.img fire up (yes i am desperate

Won't that make the install a bit tricky?
Have you access to any other bootable CDs which might let you test whether
the boot-from-cd is busted or whether it's the particular CD you've burnt/
