I'm having difficulty booting a burned DVD ISO image of Oracle Linux 6.4 when I have previously had no problems with previous OL releases. I have done the following...
Downloaded the x86_64 image file, V37084-01.iso
Checked the MD5 checksum - all good
Burned the image to DVD
However, when I try to boot from this DVD my PC boots straight to the hard drive installation of OL6.3, it's as if it doesn't recognise the DVD as a bootable image. And, I have burned the image to multiple DVDs to rule out a bad burn.
All my BIOS settings are correct for booting from the DVD and as per my previous successful DVD installations of OL and other operating systems. I checked this with another Linux distribution which booted from the DVD fine.
Has anyone else had this problem???
It sounds like your burned DVD media is missing the boot code. How did you burn the DVD? Perhaps the following is helpful:
Thanks for your reply. It was finger trouble on my part. When right clicking to burn the image in OS X it burns the file system as opposed to the image. Using the OS X Disk Utility burns the image.
Many thanks, your reply helped me think about what I had done previously.
