    Question

    I have 2 laptops one is an HP dv6874 running win7 ultimate this computer (my old one) has no problems loading BT3 from USB, live final cd and live USB final cd(burned to dvd disk)

    using the same cd's i am unable to boot on my new laptop i get as far as selecting the boot type (kde, flux...etc...) then nothing.

    my new laptop is an HP Dv7-3080ca running an intel i7 Quad 720, 6gb ddr3 and an nvidia Geforce GT 230M

    unfortionatly i cand figure out what the problem is... if anyone has had this issue or has a workaround for this i would apreciate it.

    thanks.

    if it helps any i can post more specific hardware specs as im leaning toward an usupported piece wether it be vid card or motherboard and such.

    I'd try enabling acpi=off hack.. This needs to be specified prior to hitting enter upon choosing which wm/de you want to boot.

    I am also having this issue with usb key .

    **edit**
    CD - BT3Final & BT3-final-usb
    USB BT3Final & BT3-final-usb

    using the bt-acpi=off tweak i was able to boot as far as the log in screen . however under all boot options (safe included) i end up with 3 errors

    first one i didnt right down (stupid i know) but it was regarding video configuration files detected with no valid configuration
    2. kded ERROR KUniqueApplication Rregistering Failed
    3. kded ERROR Communication Problen with kded, it probobly crashed.

    (and no im not trying to bump my own thread just giving the new informatiion as i get it.)

    Thanks again guys/gals for all your help.

    ps. to tremo1984 i tried the wait it out... left it for 15 mins on 5 of the different boot options over the 4 media options i have and no luck with waiting it out.

    backtrack 4 works perfectly fine - my concern is now that spoonwep and arodump are not there anymore... any information on this or if the comands have just changed?

    airodump-ng
    airmon-ng
    aireplay-ng
    aircrack-ng
    these are the command iv been testing my routers with never.
    havent heard of spoon wep
    also if your trying to crack wifi your laptop might support injection mode without patching your drivers
