Fedora 12

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

This GParted Live was created by:
create-gparted-live -l en -b u -e e -d sid -m -s -g -n 2.6.32-3 -i 0.5.2-1

The files and folders:


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.
