I have downloaded ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso[Ubuntu 11.10] and Fedora-16-i686-Live-Desktop.iso[Fedora-16] images for the respective sites. I wanted to create bootable installation dics for both these flavours. I use Win-7 Disc Image burner inbuilt in the Windows Explorer to burn these image files on to 2 separate DVD dics. But when I reboot with these discs in the DVD drive tray, neither of this starts the Fedora or Ubuntu installation process. I have set in my PC Bios Setup my DVD drive as 1st bootable drive, then my hard disk as 2nd bootable drive.
I don't udnerstand what could be going wrong here?
When I check the files burnt on the discs in Windows explorer I see as follows:
Fedora 16 Disc:
Ubuntu 11.10 Disc:
I have seen my PC boot from bootable CDs in past? I doubt if the files are burnt correctly?
What could be going wrong here? Any help?
PS - When we insert a blank DVD in the tray, and select Burn Image menu, by default there was a file named desktop.ini present , which I did not burn on the DVDs in both cases. What is that file? Could that file also be needed to be burnt along with the Image files ?
