Description

I downloaded both 1.6.0 version and 1.4.4 versions of DragonflyBSD.
Using WinRAR, I extracted the .iso files into folders on my computer.
During the extraction, there were a few files that were copied/already
existed. I took the option of keeping the larger file where such a choice was
possible, which was only once or twice I think.
I then burned the contents of the files over onto cd’s.
When I place the cd into the drive, it will come up with the
DragonflyBSD ‘page’, and I can browse it with no problems.
However I can not boot from the cd.
Here’s what I have on the disk:
(Folders)
Autorun
Bin
Boot
Dev
Etc
Etc.hdd
Mnt
Modules
Proc
Root
Sbin
Tmp
Usr
Var
(Files)
Kernel.bootp
Boot.catalog
.cshrd
Copyright
Kernel
Readme
Sys
Index.html
Dflybsd.ico
Autorun.bat
.profile
Autorun.inf
Autorun
Readme.usb


Help? Just let me know what I did wrong.

Thanks

As other replies already indicated: you need to burn the image you downloaded
directly on the coaster, without extracting the files, nor creating a filesystem
which contains the image.

Apart from that, the latest iso snapshots have a working installer again.
