Topic: [SOLVED] Live CD 0.24.0-2-amd64 [from .zip file] doesn't boot
I've booted previous GParted Live CD versions, most recently gparted-live-0.16.2-1b-amd64, on my AMD 64-bit computer. Those earlier versions I burned from a downloaded .iso image.
Live CD 0.24.0-2-amd64, though, downloads as a zip file. I assume I'm supposed to unpack the files in it and burn those files onto a CD. This doesn't boot. I don't mean it fails; I mean my computer never even suspects there's anything bootable on the CD. It boots straight to Windows without trying to boot from CD. The 0.16.2 CD still boots correctly.
Possibly the 0.24 live CD assumes I have grub as my boot loader, which I don't. What is the boot loading process on a CD? What files on a CD make it bootable? My Google-fu is not strong enough to find an answer.
