I dont have access to a blank CD right now so I mounted it with daemon and its supposed to be the same as having the cd. Its just opening folders for me to see whats inside. Has anyone burned this yet?

You are going to have to boot into the OS. Burn the ISO to a CD (using software that lets you burn ISO images). There is one built into Windows 7. Just right-click on the ISO -> Open With -> Windows Disk Image Burner. Or mpgrimm2 mentioned in another post using a USB flash drive to boot it. A piece of software like Universal USB Installer would work. Make sure to use the option for openSUSE 12.1 i686 KDE, as this is what the CD is based off of.

I am happy to help whenever I can.
If I make a mistake, I do sincerely apologize.

If I have helped you, let me know! It means a lot, and I love to hear it.

Forgot. There seems to be a small bug in their installer that causes ISO files not to show up when you browse for them. The way around that is to navigate to where the ISO is, and in the area below, where the selected file shows up, start typing the name of the file. It should start to autocomplete. Just click the autocompleted entry and click open.

I'm sorry. This is a live Linux distro. It's specially created to help automate certain steps (Step 1, Step 3) in Unknownforce's post. You'll reboot your computer with that flash drive in, and it should boot into the live environment. Use the README file on the desktop for more information.

Hope this helps.

Is it just booting into your main operating system? If that's the case, it could be one of two things.

Your BIOS isn't set to check for bootable CDs before going straight to your main operating system. In that case, you will either have to find the key for the boot menu when your computer is booting, and have it boot from the CD, or go into your BIOS and make sure that your CD-ROM drive is set to boot before your hard drive.

Also. Did you burn the ISO to the disc using a dedicated program for burning ISO image files, or did you just burn the ISO file to the disc? If you just burned the ISO file to the CD, that won't work. You will need to use the image burn feature of your CD burning software to burn the image. If you are running Windows 7, there is one built in. Right-click on the ISO file -> Open With -> Windows Disc Image Burner.

I checked the Boot options and CD-Rom is first and I used the Right click open with windows Burn image but still goes to windows 7 instead of booting from the CD. I know there's something wrong with my PC not your method.
