CD Won't startup normally

    Last year I created a UBCD4Win cd and it ran fine. I have since then lost the CD. I went to create the CD again, put it in my system and it says "Caldera DR-DOS 7.03" and it's just a dos screen. Normally that blue screen appears and you choose how you want to boot up, or whatever. I don't understand what's wrong... Do I need to type something?

    Sorry if this question has been asked before, I looked but couldn't find anything on the topic.

      It appears you created a bootable disk using your burning software. You have to Burn the ISO as an image.

        Thanks

        If I have to make copies of the CD - can I just copy the CD or do I need to reburn the ISO as an image everytime?

          As long as your burning software makes proper copies, you can copy it. But realize you are then essentially copying your XP license (as it uses your XP files to build the CD) and we are not responsible afterward. :)

            I'm going to rephrase what LB is saying just a little bit so its clear since this is an important subject...

            The CD you create from your own XP licensed files contains Microsoft copyrighted files... so you can't give a copy to others but you can make copies for yourself.


            As a side note... I think burning yourself copies from the ISO instead of the CD you have created will be faster.
            Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
