It's few years old computer and it is BIOS.
I'm using MacBook to burn it and therefore it will verify the disk before completed the burning.
I'm not sure md5sum. Have no ideas about it. It is burning at the slowest speed.
I'm trying to use my thumbdrive to make a bootable usb drive by using this tool: http://rufus.akeo.ie/. What should i do with the following?
1. File System : FAT32, NTFS, exFAT
2. Cluser Size: default is 32KB.
2. Create a bootable boost using: MSDOS, FREEDOS, ISO Image
Having stated earlier that you can boot the previous PCLinuxOS DVD, you can use that liveDVD session to create a liveUSB thumbdrive, using the PCLinuxOS Live USB Creator application found under PC --> More Applications --> Configuration --> PCLinuxOS Live USB Creator
This is a much better application, created specifically for creating PCLinuxOS liveUSB flash drives. You would need to mount the partition that has the newer image on it, then navigate to the directory holding that image when asked for the image to use. http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,82277.0.html
In the January edition of the PCLinuxOS magazine there is an article about Migrating from Windows, that has a section on creating a liveUSB device using PCLinuxOS Live USB Creator, with step by step pictures and explanations for the whole process.
Scroll down to the heading: Creating a LiveUSB with persistence (quick guide)
You don't actually need the persistence, but it's a nice feature if you want to use the liveUSB as a portable working installation, and want to save your settings and newly created files.http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201301/page01.html
