burn to cd-r no larger than 700mb
« on: June 26, 2016, 08:21:05 am »
I have an old computer that had WinXP. It only has a CD reader. I burned Peppermint 5 to a CD because it was a small file. It is great. But now I want to upgrade to Peppermint 7. I downloaded it but it is a larger file 1.1 GB. It will not fit on a cd r 700mb.

any suggestions as to how to upgrade?

Thanks for your assistance.

Unfortunately, due to the size of the files, there was no way for PCNetSpec to make an image under 700MB even with just the bare essentials installed.

Do you have a flash drive, or can you acquire one?  Your local Walmart or similar store will have 2GB and 4GB ones for not a lot of money.  (cheaper than a DVD-RW drive)

If you can pick up one of those, you can plug it into a USB port, burn the image to it and then boot from it and install the system.

Is it a CD player only, or does it read DVD's ?
(most XP systems would have had DVD drives)
