V3.5 Upgrade 2 ISO Image won`t boot

Jump to solution

Hi. I downloaded the 3.5 update 2 ISO and have burnt to disc (tried both CD and DVD) but the host will just not boot from the disk. I`ve tried booting from same disk(s) on standard desktop and other servers with BIOS selected to boot from Cd/DVD but will not boot.

The files on the disk show in explorer as:(see attachment). I`m in the process of downloading the iSO again just to make sure it`s not a duff download. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced a similar issue?? Thanks

Don't worry nobodies time has been wasted, for future reference, when you have download an iso for the website do a MD5 check agianst it. this will verify that the down load is correct.

It'll burn onto a CD, that should be all you need. I would do like you're doing re-download the ISO and reburn it. What program are you using to burn the .ISO file?
