Fedora 12

2.6.32.9-70.fc12.i686

I downloaded the gparted iso and burnt it to a CD.

gparted-live-0.5.2-1
This GParted Live was created by:
create-gparted-live -l en -b u -e e -d sid -m http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian -s http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian-security -g http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core -n 2.6.32-3 -i 0.5.2-1

The files and folders:

isolinux
live
syslinux
COPYING
GParted-Live-Version

I put the disk in and reboot. Nothing happens. I just get a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner. I then have to switch of the power button to get it to reboot. I have done this a number of time and the results are the same.

Can anyone tell me how to boot from the gparted liveCD?

Many thanks for any suggestions,

you're sure you grabbed a bootable ISO? did you verify the download? did you verify the burn? did you try burning again? did you try burning at a slower speed? –  quack quixote Mar 17 '10 at 5:10
    
I did verify the burn was successfull. However, I will burn again just to be sure. –  ant2009 Mar 17 '10 at 5:46
    
I have downloaded the same iso and burnt it to a different disk. I still experienced the same problem. Any suggestions? Thanks. –  ant2009 Mar 17 '10 at 15:42

You can use a Fedora Live CD and install gparted. Obviously it will be a volatile installation but will be usable.
