    I don't exactly know what are you trying to say.

    So yare you saying that initially was shown a menu of all the possible boot options, you've gone passed through that and then it dropped you into a shell something like `root@bt:~#' and so you tried entering startx but that left you with a blank screen?

    Or am I completely missing the plot? Explain in as much much detail as you can.

    You don't load it under Windows; Linux is a totally different OS. Boot from the CD.
