Hello MarkB_Mi,

I saved the Linuxmint on the dvd so I could try it a learn how to use it. I guess I'll have to see that the download is an image not a file. I don't remember how it came down. I just went to the downloads window, and tryed to save and open at the same time.............no luck.
Guido.

Guido, if you open that DVD in Windows Explorer and you see a file named something-or-other.ISO, then you don't have a bootable disk. Google "burning iso image" and you'll find a lot of info on how to make a bootable image.

Once you have a bootable image on the DVD, you may still need to change your BIOS settings like Duner says. First you need to turn off "fast boot" if it's enabled. Then make sure your DVD drive is before your hard disk in the boot order.

If you're not certain whether or not you want to go with Linux, consider buying a second hard disk and installing Linux on it. At any rate, you'll want to back up any files you want to save before installing the new OS.

HEllo MarkB_MI,

I just looked at the file, you are right, it is an ISO file. I'll need to burn the ISO image as you said. Got to run................
Thanks...................Guido

I don't know nothing but you have to set your BIOS boot sequence to CD/DVD first if that is what you are installing from. Least that is what I did.
