Windows 7: Bootable SuSe ISO DVD

Bootable SuSe ISO DVD

I thought that all that I would have to do to create a bootable DVD with an ISO was to simply burn a data DVD with Nero 8, but when that failed to boot, regardless of which of several drives that I tried, I Googled to see if I had forgot something. From what I found, it appears that I didn't, so I now have to ask what I'm doing wrong?

For burning ISO's I personally use PowerISO. Also you can use MagicISO.

Thanks all, I solved the problem. I think that it was that I burned it as a data file, rather than an image. I now have SuSe 11.4 up and running. I may be premature in saying so, but it appears that it installed in much the same fashion that I previously had to work a good deal to accomplish, and a lot faster. I hope that I'm not wrong, because I'm somewhat more familiar with SuSe than I am with other distros.

Hi seekermeister, will you be not comfortable booting any of all your bootable ISOs from a pendrive rather than burning them on to CD/DVDs ? (ya, provided your system/s can boot from an USB device)

Just have a look at my post Creating a bootable flash drive from ISO file

I don't know that it is a matter of not being comfortable with flash drives, I just feel more comfortable with discs. Besides I have a lot of them just sitting on the shelf waiting to be used. Also, I sort of have the flash drives that I have set aside for special purposes.

Software for cloning bootable USB to bootable CDROM?
I'm looking for a freeware utility that will clone a bootable USB stick with special build of Slax with an inhouse developed program to a bootable CDROM. There's plenty of information on how to go the opposite way, from bootable CDROM to bootable USB, but our company has several bootable sticks...
SuSe 12.1
The problem may be related to the one that I had with 11.4, in that it seems that I can't reach a graphical desktop on either it or 12.1. After installation, it popped an alert that due to either a minimal installation, or that my graphics card wasn't supported (EVGA GT460 SC), YaST only produced...

SuSe 12.1 In 5 Days
Just in case anyone here is an enthusiast, it is supposed to be released on 11-16-2011. Not sure how much difference there will be, but the jump in version numbers seem to indicate something more than minor changes. The only thing that I found on it, was that it was to use a different file system...
