My CD 1 boots fine. But my CDRW is about 3 weeks old...

"set to burn boot data cd" makes me go Huh? I get ISO's and just created it from such. There are a few that burn the ISO file to the CD, which that never works. Instead I just doubleclicked on the ISO and let nero make the CDR.

ok, double clicking the iso worked thanks. in nero 6.03 with updates it has nero express and under data cd it has a choice of making a bootable cd. thats what I tried to use, and dragged the iso to the burn menu. what version of nero do you have? I tried your torrent page and it only wanted to DL at 1k per second at 4:00 am, i went to and downloaded at 350k/s. I have 4mb down cable and 256 up. It took me about 1.5 hrs to DL all 3 cd's. I;m at work now can't wait to get home and Install 10.0. should I do a new install or update? By the way, My cable for my hdd had the right color code and the thin pattern on the ribbon, but no closed #28 pin hole. I tried cable select anyway and the monotor didn't even show up. So, I did master slave the right way for now, until I get over to comp usa for the 80 conducter cable. Everything running great! thanks ,skip
