this is not a strictly ubuntu related topic, but I need to recover my
dvd-writer, and have been on this for a day now, without solution.
so yesterday I wanted to burn a dvd on my acer tm4001 laptop and guess what! i
couldn't. cd s worked fine, but no dvd burning. ok so i thought it was time
to update my firmware, booted into freeboot dos cd and started updating, when
at the end of the firmware deletion procedure it just rebooted. my dvd just
doesn't respond now. I am left without a medium to boot dos from and I need
dos to update firmware. tough luck huh?
so I have here many freedos installs and bootimages, but don't know how to do
it. i tried to just copy it to a partition on my harddisk, but it doesnt want
to be booted (by grub).
if anyone can answer I would be thankfull
