Frequently asked Questions


I got the iso image - and now?

Start your preferred burning application and put an empty disc into your dvd-writer. Now search and start the option "Burn iso image to disc" and choose the Toorox .iso file. Start the burning process and if it is finished restart your computer. If booting from dvd fails and you dont see the menu on your display, you have to change the boot options by opening the BIOS and search for the "1st Boot" and "2nd Boot" entry. 1st Boot should be "cdrom" or "cdrom,a,c".
