i have a computer with an aopen ax4sg-max mainboard. i used the run xp but now I want it to be dual boot with linux mint 13. I burned the dvd and rebooted my computer. But then, nothing happens! I look at my bios boot sequence to check my dvddrive was the first boot option. It was but the computer cannot boot from this dvd. I burned another one because I was thinking the burned dvd might be the problem but the same happened again. I tested the burned dvd in my notebook. It immediately booted from the dvd.
Back in my computer, again no succes. As a last option, I used my usb drive and made it bootable using unetbootin. I check my bios settings again, saw nothing specifically mentioning usb drive but thought it might be under add-in cards under harddisks or it might be considered as removable device. But still, no succes.
The weirdest thing is that before I tried to boot this dvd, I burned my cdrw disk with gparted to partition my disk correctly. This is also a bootable disk and using this disk, there is no problem. The computer reads and starts instantly from this disk and gparted is started properly.
So I lost and I hope someone can help me with getting my computer boot from this dvd or usb drive...
