I have an old computer running Scientific Linux 6.8 which has been behaving erratically. So I wanted to run a clean copy of the operating system to see if I could figure out the problem (been attempting to figure things out for 2 months). I burned an ISO image of the liveDVD of SL6 (32 bit), changed the boot order in the BIOS so the optical disk was given first priority, and restarted. The computer started up and displayed the same logon screen as the it does when rebooted without the liveDVD in the optical disk reader. My question is how do I tell which copy of the operating system is being used; the one from the ISO image, or the one on the hard disk?
