Original Post condensed version:

"I've burned the 11.1 Beta 1 x86_64 DVD twice. It will boot with Suse
graphics and all then after selecting 'Installation' it loads kernel
into a text mode installer and gives the error:

Make sure that CD 1 is in your drive.

I can by using back button get 2 other errors:

This is not a openSuse CD-ROM.


No repositories found.

I tried again using k3b. By default it burns DVD's at 4.1x with my DVD
writer. I selected the slowest speed it offers 2.4x. When I booted it I
got exact same results as before."

New Post:

I'm feeling like an absolute idiot. I can't find any possible way to
install 11.1 or Factory. As stated above DVD doesn't work [same problem
with 11.1 Beta 2]. I've tried internet install [won't boot] and KDE live
CD [won't boot]. What the heck am I doing wrong? I've tested Beta
versions of openSUSE before. Is it really true that I have no way what
so ever to install and test 11.1 or Factory? What am I missing?

I filed a bug report:

but it is receiving no perceived response... Frustrating. What am I
missing? Will this at least be fixed by stable release? Is there any way
to get a 11.1 Alpha version to install and upgrade?

Did you select the verify written data check box prior to burning and verified
the md5 sum with the md5 sums found on
the site where you downloaded the dvd?
Dave P

Yes and yes. md5 sum matches in all cases [I've downloaded and burned DVD numerous times]. And if I select to verify written data when burning with k3b it says something like burned data on DVD matches files.
