    Default Problems booting BT4

    Hi.
    I have a strange problem. I can't install BackTrack 4 (all versions) into hard disc. I can't even boot it. I used both DVD and USB to play BT but the outcome is the same. After booting from DVD or USB and choosing the resolution I get stuck in this:
    Starting up...
    ACPI: Expecting a [Reference] package element, found type C.
    I have successfully installed BT4 into an old Pentium4 pc using the same DVD and USB.
    Here is a detailed report of my PC hardware.
    --------[ Summary ]----------------------------- - Report

    Thank you for your help.
