SOLVED: Detect and Mount CD-ROM

Postby kepler19 » 2017-04-20 09:45

Hello Sirs,

I am trying to install Debian 8.7.1 alongside on Windows 10 by USB drive but i have such issue: Your Installation CD-ROM couldn’t be mounted.

What does it mean and how to solve it?

Thanks in advanced.

Same thing happened to me. I just opened a shell and typed "mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /cdrom", and then i could continue with the installation

That error occurs when a defective program is used to transfer the ISO image to the USB stick.

Please avoid unetbootin and other such crapware in future and refer to TFM instead:
