    I have a 2-GB bootable Linux SD card, from which Linux can be installed.
    I wonder why the OP wants a DVD.

    Hello @mikeincousa,

    I need I think is some flavor of a live CD.

     Linux Live USB / DVD

    Linux Live USB / DVD

    Basically . . .

    [1] Download the Linux ISO - I always use Linux Mint although there are others available.
    [2] Create a Bootable USB / DVD [ media ] using Rufus for example => Rufus.

    > Download Linux Mint 20 Ulyana

    I hope this helps.

    Hi there
    Forget Rufus if you want a bootable Linux system -- especially if you need a "Hybrid" type boot (MBR/UEFI).

    simply in the WSL on Windows or from another live linux system - a VM will work perfectly then as sudo or root use the dd command : dd if=<iso file> of=</dev/sdx where sdx = device nr of the usb device> bs=64M status=progress.

    No formatting of the usb is necessary.

    Cheers

    Years ago, I used Rufus to create a bootable Linux device, from which Linux was installed in Legacy mode. That was the only time I used Rufus.

    The OP may consider using ImgBurn to burn Linux onto a DVD.
    Download Portable ImgBurn 2.5.8.0
