    Default Can't boot from Epire EFI

    Hello

    Last days, i have been trying to boot my Dell Dimension desktop from an "EmpireEFI_v108.iso" file burned on a CD-R.

    Since then i have been unsuccessful to even boot from the disc. My system just don't recognizes the disc as being bootable. Specs: 2GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo 6600, Ati Radeon HD 5770.
    I also tested the disc on another computer and it didn't work either (maybe due to 512MB RAM?).

    DVD-RW station is on the first place in the BIOS list and i have also tried to use a legacy version of Empire EFI.

    Is there somebody who can help me out?

    Hi,
    I would recheck that CD/iso again. The amount of RAM should not have anything to do with your system not bootable from CD/DVD.

    Now i have tried an DVD-RW (Imation) with an iBoot image and this gives the same result: no boot. Makes me thing "what is it that it even can't boot?".

    In one case i copied the iso file to a CD-R with the built-in Vista burner. The other time i copied the image file to Infrarecorder which burned it on a DVD-RW.
    Hope this explains why it doesn't work because i aint got an idea.

    I'm sure you don't want me to say it's incorrectly done.
    So a real quick answer is using something like UltraISO.
    Ever wonder why it's .iso instead of .zip/rar.
    There are references if you'd like to know.

    I am glad to hear it's incorrectly done, because now there is a solution. I am going to try UltraISO. I will post the results.

    Once upon a time, i did wonder why it is iso, and from what i know zip/rar is a compressed file or package and iso is a standardization and is used as a special format for booting and installations in this case.

    So thanks, i am going to try it.

    I burned the ISO file on a DVD-RW with UltraISO.

    The result:
    "No boot device available."


    Do i need to do something different? I think the ISO is allright to burn directly without adding or changing files or am i wrong here?

    Alright
    It's good that you have DVD-RW.
    Open the .iso image by clicking on it (ultraiso should launch), then on Ultra-ISO screen, there is a tab for burning it, select that and choose the slowest speed for your 2 iso's.
    Try that and let me know.
