    UDF file system

    Just got the DVD directly in the mail from microsoft. I want to install vista.

    On my home built machine with an asrock 939MB and a a opteron 939 I got this
    message

    This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
    that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification.

    Tried it on my dell and it autoladed without a problem. Can't figure out
    what this message means. Please help with this one.

    Re: UDF file system

    Are you trying to perform an update from Win XP
    by running the setup program? If so, that's why
    you get the error. The DVD is formatted in UDF.
    That's the standard for DVDs and Win XP does
    not have native support for UDF.

    Boot from the DVD and you won't get that error.
    But you're advised to install Vista on a
    separate partition or hard drive. You may
    encounter problems with your Win XP, especially
    if you install to a partition on the same hard
    drive as XP. The safest thing to do is to
    disable you Win XP hard drive when you install
    Vista and put Vista on a separate hard drive.
    If you "update" XP, make sure you have a full
    back of your Win XP system that you can use to
    restore your XP to the state it was. You will
    have to completely clean the hard drive to
    replace Vista!

    Re: UDF file system

    Because the boot section of the DVD is not
    related to the format of the data section. The
    boot section of the DVD will load the necessary
    software interface to read the UDF file system.
    It makes perfect sense if you're knowledgeable
    of the technicalities and how a bootable CD or
    DVD works. Otherwise, all you have to
    comprehend is that it works. You don't have to
    know how or why if you aren't interested.

    Re: UDF file system

    You did not mention OS being used or Vista version - the Opteron may be the
    culprit although AMD states it is Vista capable.
    In any case do not "upgrade" XP - witness the numerous posts re: "getting my
    XP back". Installing Vista from within XP to another HD creates a dual boot
    scenario.

    Re: UDF file system

    The CPU has absolutely no affect on the DVD file
    system format. Technically there is no
    difference between an Opteron and an Athlon 64,
    or even the FX. The all have the same guts in
    the CPU, the only difference is the cache and
    the QA/QC certification of the Opteron.
