Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I was trying to boot a Linux LiveCD, and it didn't work. I have already taken the following troubleshooting steps, and tried again after each one.
I checked the optical drive had priority in the boot sequence.
I disabled Quick POST.
I tried the other optical drive I have installed (after setting it to first in the boot sequence)
I disabled booting from all devices except the optical drive.
I checked the LiveCD works in another machine, and I'm able to read it on this machine from within Windows. It also won't boot with any other bootable CD I have (mostly OS install discs).
The fucker still won't boot from CD. With booting restricted to the DVD drive only, I get the "Please insert system disc and press enter" error message. If I hit enter the drive doesn't even spin up, so I don't think it's actually reading it.
