I clicked on:
Download Version 5.1.1 from ibiblio.org: lupu-511.iso
burn option popped up, burned the 130mb data to a 650mb 12X disc.
put burned CD in CD drive of Presario 5000 that won't bootup and the results are ???
What is this boot disc suppose to do by itself?
It is doing zilch, unless I'm suppoed to press some key on the keyboard.
before doing the above, I downloaded an older version of the boot software, from May 2009. VERY small file. My only option was to "save target" and I chose desktop so I could find it. It was able to be opened using notepad or wordpad only.
I downloaded BurnCDCC as recommended to get burn speed of 2x and the burner had a "browse" to locate what was to be burned. The file was on the desktop but it msut not be an image. It's on the desktop but it is not found using the browse tool on the burner. So I went back and clicked on the 2nd link above. That appeared to load the burner on the PC which is Nero. The burn was indicating successful.
So, forgetting the last paragraph,
how does the boot CD work?
