How did you burn the file to DVD? You need to use something such as click here to burn it in a form that will be recognised as a boot-able DVD.

Ah yes. Downloaded and burned of native Win 7. Might have known Windoze would not do it.

Will use your version.

I have been used to xp burner pro, that also performed.

Start cover.

Thank you all.

CD burner XP pro did it

Created a dual 'run from disk/install of Linux Mint.

Now installed on a spare machine dual booting with Ubuntu14.4
