I would download instead the first DVD (or CD) ISO image file, check that
the MD5SUM is fine and burn the image from windows if you want, just
remember to choose in the burning application you want to create a
"bootable ISO/image write" or something like that, and not just burn as
data.

Greetings,

To whom this may concern

I have been having great difficulty creating a CD ISO for Debain. I
went to "getting debian" and "Downloading large Image" and "Download
CD/DVD with Jiggo" and select one of the official image. Is this the
proper way to select and Image and write it to a CD? Will the BIOS
read the CD if the Driver is selected? Please advise.

Sincerely

Patrick Kongawi




I usually use http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

But for livecd i usually use ubuntu ones, latest packages conveniently
packaged for live image

Jigdo is a suitable way to download a CD image, but don't forget you'll
need to download the jigdo client for windows, too. (Think of Jigdo as
an alternative to BitTorrent, etc).

Alternatively, if you have internet access, you might try a "netinst" CD
(Getting Debian -> Download a small installation image -> Small CDs). Be
aware that these won't work if you connect via WPA wireless or need some
specialist way of connecting to the internet, but for most people (wired
connection to a DSL router), it's great.

Finally, you say you're starting in Windows. Have you looked at

I've used Debian Testing as my primary system for several months
without problems (except the ones I caused).

Several years ago I used Testing for two or three years, again without
troubles.
