How do you burn the ISO "into" a cd?

I burned it onto a CD I am guessing thats not correct. Because I just tried booting it from the CD 6 times and it didnt work at all.

  • Locate xpud0.9.2.iso file, and click Open button.
  • Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable CD:

  • Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS
Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

Any idea on how long it takes? A friends car wont start because it is -35 degrees here.

Also, http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/

The founding geek says you guys -TEACH- malware removal? Where do I sign up for classes?

I went to school for Computer Science, but I was only interested in programming and web design, and I had to take many other classes and wasn't interested half way so I dropped out. But I would love to be like you and help out other people. My way of giving back to the community.

Depending on how fast your computer is, I would estimate to more than an hour.

Here's the link for the application procedure. There's some really hi-tech malware fighters who'll be teaching you (you only hear about them in tech legends).

So it finished, and then it said it was going to restart and load up Windows for the first time. Turns out the blue screen is back, it then rebooted, and now in the middle of "setting up Windows" I get a pop up saying "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation"

I have restarted like 5 times and it does the same thing over and over.

Do you remember installing hardware devices after creating the boot CD? (I am thinking of recent video card changes).

In the meantime, choose option two in the recovery. Lets see how it performs.

No hardware changes were done. I have installed some other programs since, but no hardware changes.

I will try option 2

Hi kinyo,

Lets try this. If Plan A doesn't work then proceed to Plan B.

PLAN A
You will need a VGA cable for this method.
Turn off the computer.
Switch your monitor connection from DVI to VGA cable of the video card.
Insert the recovery disc in the CD tray. Boot from the recovery disc and select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults"

Note:If the computer restarts to load up Windows for the first time and then BSOD occurs, the next restart will give you the windows boot options, select VGA mode and see if the setup continues.



PLAN B

If you dont have a VGA cable.
  • Turn off and physically unplug the power cord from the the ailing computer.
  • Open the computer case and carefully remove the video card.
  • Close the computer cover then connect your video card to the computers internal vga port.
  • Plug the power cord again.
  • Start the computer then load the recovery disc then perform a full recovery again.

If you are unsure how to proceed with the above, do not hesitate to ask.
