Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10591
Bug! Urgent! The zoot-i386.iso made bootable CD can not boot!
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
I have used RedHat6.1 for several months. I downloaded the zoot-i386.iso
and made a bootable CD of RedHat 6.2 last week. The RedHat6.2 CD can not
boot on my PC this time, though the old RedHat6.1 CD which I made several
months ago can boot smoothly on my PC all the same. I tried several times
and the result was the same one.
When the RedHat6.2 was booting, it gave one line of message:
1. FD 1.44MB System Type-(00)
Then it seemed that the RedHat6.2 CD tried to read something from the
floppy disk A:. After one minute or so the CDROM failed to boot up and the
harddisk booted up.
My PC's configurations are:
CPU AMD K6-2 450MHz
Maiinboard ASUS P5A Rev.1006
BIOS AMI 4.51PG 1994-1998
CDROM ASUS CD-S400/A
HardDisk IBM 10GB
Then I tried to use the same RedHat6.2 CD on a Dell Optiplex GX100 PC
(Celeron 400MHz, 128Mb RAM, 3.2GB HardDisk) and the RedHat6.2 CD booted
smoothly on the Dell PC.
So it might show that the zoot-i386.iso file should have some important
errors in the booting section and device-seeking section.

If you try a different CDROM drive in your system does it boot properly?
The ISO image we put up is indeed bootable, so there was either a problem with
the image that you downloaded (I would suggest checking the md5sum to make sure
that the file is corrupt) or there is a problem with the method that you used to
make the CDROM. What method are you using to create the CDROM?
Closing bug due to lack of activity.
