Can you not post the error message or a screenshot?
i have a toshiba satellite laptop, A215-S7422. BT2 and 3 just wont boot.
some of the specs:
AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TL-58
1gig DDR2 SDRAM
160 gig HDD
when i tried to boot it, it seems to go into an infinite loop or something
just prints one line of error on screen for forever...
something about HDD?
If anyone already posted this, I am sorry. I've checked BT out on my desktop, it's pure awesome. Just wish i can do some work with it on the road
it's scrolling up really fast, i cant really read the error message at all, but there seems to be a lot of "/"... is there any way to take a screenshot?
on bt2 :
at boot prompt , type :
boot : bt debug
it will stop at each important step , could help to read messages
on bt3 , highlight your choice in menu, hit tab and insert debug in the line that will appear when hitting tab, hit enter
Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD

Maybe start at the beginning:
...will any CD boot on your laptop? If not, maybe go to the BIOS and set your BOOT sequence
...will the specific BT CD that you tried on the laptop boot up on another PC?
I have the Satellite A215 S7422, got it working. When you get to the boot screen on BT3 Final, hit tab and add "acpi=off", next run Midnight commander and navigate to the /etc/X11 directory rename xorg.conf-vesa to xorg.conf, then exit and use "startx".
The sound card doesn't work and I cant get the onboard wireless working yet but i'll let you know.
