Specs: Windows 10, 8gig
My operating system shows Windows 10 but my question is Linux so here I am.

I down loaded two ISO files, Linux lite and LXDark, I hope I have those names correct I don't have my USB stick handy. In any event I burned the ISO's to a disk and restarted my PC with no result whatsoever. I have an ASUS F502C and 'ESC' key on boot-up will allow me to get to the boot menu but I don't see the ROM drive as a selection. The drive is a Samsung Portable DVD writer SE-208 which works well, it boots my Macrium disk but it won't have a bar of the Linux two.

Something is wrong but what?

Regards.

What program did you use to burn the ISOs to disk? Have you tested them on another computer?

Trry loading the dvd into the dvdrom, then start the computer from a cold boot.. I've seen posts here and elsewhere which suggest that as a possible solution; and on some occasions it does work.

Hi trvlr and ijack, thanks for your help. I used IMGBURN and I tried trvlr's method and it worked well. I also made a bootable USB which also worked a charm, thanks for all help and advice.

Onward into the new world of Linux boots and all

Regards
