    Default I have to place a copy of BT4 in C:\ to work...

    Hey I downloaded the image of bt4 beta for DVD, and I checked the md5 and was correct, then I burnt the image into a DVD successfully (no problems occurred) but when I try to boot it comes to a fatal error. Here’s some detail:
    ...blah blah...
    Looking for 'BT4' data directory (searching for livecd.sgn file)
    Fatal error occured-BT4 no found.
    You are maybe using an unsupported boot device (eg. SCSI or old PCMCIA)
    Workaround: Copy the directory BT4 from your boot device to an IDE/SATA disk e.g. to mnt/hda1/BT4 or C:\BT4. Then try to boot again.
    Something went wrong and we can't continue. This should never happened.
    Please reboot your computer with Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
    Now I have found that I have to copy BT4 folder in C:\ to work, so that what was I did and it worked without any problems…What can I do to work without have to place a copy of BT4 in C:\?

    You don't copy bt4 into your C:\, first there's no bootloader and second I doubt linux will run well under NTFS (which is what I'm sure you have set for C:\ as)

    Why don't you try bt3 instead?

    I had the same problem with my USB install. My fix was to rename the folder "bt4" to "BT4". Windows doesn't care about case, unix does.

    don't hijack other people's threads.

    Have you also tried other linux livecd/livedvd distros? what sort of hardware do you have on your computer? lspci output would be handy.
