    Exact error messages and a description of any problems you are having would be helpful. Id suggest that once you obtain them you also search Google and the forum for them before posting back.

    First post in the correct section.
    Second there is no 64bit.
    Third with so little detail in your post we won't really be able to help.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    I have hp pavilion dv6 if I remember correctly, it have blueray drive. and I couldnt boot if from BT4 dvd. then I used unetbootin and then booting from usb live dvd Iv managed to use bt4.

    ps. I guess that you might have Ati video card in your laptop. if "startx" gives you errors and you cant see your desktop u need to type "fixvesa"

    try to use some other live cd's to know if you really have some issues with your hardware.
