Live CD 0.4.9: Disk Error 10, AX=4248, drive=EF

I can't boot the ReactOS Live CD version 0.4.9

The screen shows something like "Press a key to boot ReactOS medium".

I press a key and after some seconds the following message is printed on the screen:
Disk Error 10, AX = 4248, drive EF

I use a quite old 64 bit AMD PC with an internal DVD drive.
Processor AMD Athlon II X2 250 (64bit)
BIOS (No EFI!) AMI BIOS v02.67C

I already tried removing all USB devices before booting, but the same error appears.

Any suggestions how to get this to work? No support for old BIOS? Try a newer version of ReactOS?

Kind regards
Peter

Hello.

If you use Google, you can find out this forum thread which could point out that you have burned your CD at the wrong speed.

Try decreasing it, also check the downloaded ISO image for consistence.
