Problems booting from live CD [SOLVED]

Postby CookieMonster » Sun Apr 20, 2008 4:02 pm

I'm having some problems booting from the LiveCD.
I've downloaded the .iso file, checked it with md5sum and then burned it to a CD-R, but when I try to run it on my laptop I get this error/warning: "Modprobe: WARNING: blacklisted module ipv6", it then gets to the screen with the loading bar and then the screen turns blank and nothing happens. I tried starting it in safe graphics mode and I get the same thing unless I change "quiet splash --" for "nosplash noapic noacpi -- " (like in the user guide) and then I just get this screen http://i273.removed/albums/jj240/damndisgruntled/DSC00072.jpg, with the wallpaper, the mouse and a white bar at the bottom.

However, if I run the LiveCD on my dad's desktop computer, it loads fine.

Thanks in advance, Andy
