    Hello,
    I'm having the same problem with BT5r1 KDE 32 and 64 bit. The MD5 match, Burned by Power Iso set at speed 2 onto a Sony DVD-R. Any suggestions?

    If you need to know more I am trying to run it on a Toshiba Satellite L755D. 1.4 Gh AMD Quad Core, 4 Gb ram, 580 Gb free on HDD. if you need any more information let me know.

    Thanks,
    Nightspear

    Hi,

    If I'm not misunderstanding, you are doing it in a wrong way, in first screen after booting from DVD when the command prompt is stating boot: you need to just press enter, after bt5 boots successfully you can use startx command to start user interface.

    Regards
