My laptops USB port are totally busted. I'm trying to make a Qubes boot disc (4.7Gb DVD+RW) using Debian. I've already tried xfburn with default settings which didn't work. (I've had success with xfburn+debian ISOs before).

The laptop is fairly new, purchased 3yrs ago for $1100, Sony.

I couldn't find any documentation on the qubes site about creating DVDRW mediums for qubes.

Rather than frustrate myself, I'm hoping someone can help me out with this.

  • Qubes seems...tangential to Tor? Also it has (very) limited hardware support. It's possible that it simply won't work with your laptop (see the Qubes website for details) – cacahuatl Jun 26 '17 at 23:27

Qubes-R3.2-x86_64.iso is equipped with an El Torito boot record and boot images for BIOS and UEFI. So it should boot from DVD if burned as image without any further data manipulation. If it then shows messages of SYSLINU/ISOLINUX or GRUB, then booting has succeeded as far as the DVD boot equipment is concerned. (It may then well fail because the operating system in the ISO is not suitable for the machine.)
