I have another friend (that makes 3
) who tried the DVD. First we changed the bios settings on her computer.
(It is not a small thing for a friend to let you change the bios settings on her computer. That kind of friend is either a rare find or really stupid.
But with help from afar and a little glass of red wine and a 'what the heck' attitude, we did the deed. )
The DVD then booted and it only reached the point that I reached. It stops short of reaching the desk top.
As reported earlier, this happened to another friend.
It was suggested that my friend try another live OS. I had the disk I made to install PCLinuxOS 2010.1. It did boot on my friend's computer. We had fun looking at it and I was a bit homesick for that version. It worked so well.
I almost installed it on my friend's computer and she would not even realized what hit here....but I didn't.
With the change of bios settings, my friend was also able to use my USB. We booted to the 2 live OS I have on it to her computer. Since I have backups there, we were able to exchange some files.
I report this here as I was concerned in another topic about being able to transfer my files to a different computer. I understand it is a matter of the bios.....which is NO small matter.
It does raise the question as to why 2 others cannot boot my DVD either. I know it was just a test or trial.
