I've downloaded the 2010.12 KDE .iso (691.5 MB), double checked the md5 (correct) and burned 3 different CDs with Brasero and none of them will boot. This is the same machine and OS (Linux Mint 10) that's burned and successfully booted live CD/DVDs of Pardus 2011, Linux Mint Debian Edition, Linux Mint 10 and Puppy Linux 5.2. All 3 CD's go as far as "Boot ready", "GFX boot", "Initializing GFXtools boot" and then repeating the latter two over and over again until I reboot the machine. It plain does not boot.
Looking at the CD itself it has two folders (isolinux and boot) plus the "livecd.sqfs" file. The Boot folder is empty except for a "Grub" folder which is also empty. Anyone know what the problem might be?
