Okay, thanks for that. I have actually already tried burning at x4. I
have also tried 3 different writers. Nothing helps.
Currently I have one cd that will boot on 2 out of 7 machines. There is
a mixture of motherboards, but these are machines that we use all the
time and I haven't had any problems before.
I have also tried yet more makes of cd (I think that's 6 types now).
This is driving me insane.
Please ignore spelling and punctuation - I did.
