So, I can't copy the exact output of the error because it happens while booting the live cd. I get errors with my hard drive. (i have a gateway nv52 it should work) Both the drives soft reset failed. Then I get emask exception errors from my hard drive forever, it never boots. So, if I remove my hdd it boots fine, but I don't wanna have to do that to use backtrack, so what boot parameters can I use to disable the hard drive so linux doesn't even see it (nohd doesn't work). I've also tried many boot parameters like acpi=off which did nothing.
