Windows MD5summer Generator

Hi Experts,

I am installing SuSE by verifying checksum. It is 32 bit PC with Live CD KDE from http://software.opensuse.org/.

I downloaded the MD5summer. Click on Verify Sums. The checksum file you have selected contains one or more ASCII generated sums. For more info visit http://www.md5summer.org/ascii/
============================================================================
File                                                                       MD5 Hash
openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD- i686.iso     C:\Checksum\openSUSE-11.1- KDE4-LiveC D-i686.iso does  
                                                                   not exists.

I never done this before. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Download the iso from here: http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/iso/openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso
Download the md5 hash from here: http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/iso/openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso.md5

Put iso and md5 hash into the same folder, use md5summer to navigate to the folder and verify the integrity of the iso.

Then burn the iso, if the verification runs fine.

ps:

You do not install Linux by verifying a checksum. That is just an optional test to see if downloading the iso went all well.

You install Suse by booting off the installation CD that you burnt the iso on.
For burning, use Imgburn (www.imgburn.com) and select "Write image to disk", then point it to the iso file.

Should the md5summer.exe continue to give you a problem, download QuickSfv from www.quicksfv.org.
Once installed you only need to double-click the .md5 file in the folder where the iso file is as well, verification will then start automatically.

Hi Torimar,

Thanks for all your comments. I really appreciated them.

You are very welcome.

The error you describe to have encountered most likely originated from the fact that you did not keep md5 file and iso file in the same directory.

Hi Torimar,

The Imgburner is easier to use compare to Nero 9. Let's see, I need to boot CD tomorrow.

2summer,

if you own Nero, you can use it.
Imgburn is a free tool that goes straight to the point where you may burn a disk image.

With Nero, all the fancy menus and start-up modes can make it confusing to find the right option for burning. In "classical mode", select Recorder > Burn Image. That will do fine as well.

Hi Torimar,

ImgBurner works fine.

1. Current Recorder: Image Recorder
    Disc type: CD
    Image File: OpenSuSE-11.1-KDE4-Live CD-i686.iso
Image File set default & highlight in grey.
2. Burn
3. Save as Nero Image Files (.nrg) or ISO Image Files (*.iso)

I downloaded SuSE, it is ISO file. Right? I save as Nero Image Files last time. It didn't turn out right!

2summer,

I am afraid I don't understand.

-What are you using, ImgBurn or Nero?
-Why do you want to save in step #3, after burning? You already have the iso, so no need to save it again.
-What did not turn out right? Did the CD not boot?

Hi Torimar,

Never mind, please disregard the above questions.

All of sudden the SuSE boot disc, the screen became "black" with blue, red, & green. The screen look bad.

It never showed up with "Welcome" screen. I should burn the disc again.
