Sorry for the last message...
Thanks everyone that has helped me. Ok, so I checked the ISO image and it
was perfectly fine. So I checked the ribbon cable and it actually is a
40-conductor IDE cable. So this means that I need to change it for an UDMA (80 conductor)?? Oh, and when I change it, do I need to configure something,
maybe on the BIOS or something... just asking
No. CD drives are UDMA-33 compatible only, so 40-pin cables will suffice. If you want something faster than UDMA-33 with your hard drive(s) though (assuming you have EIDE hard drives), you should connect it/them with an 80-pin cable.


Also, your BIOS should have the CD drive set to boot before the hard drive(s).
