    Default BT5 Wont Boot

    So im running (or trying to run) BT5-GNOME-64 bit on persistent usb and when i boot off usb i get the load menu i click on one and it configures files or whatever it flashes to the backtrack 5 picture and then right before login screen it goes black then press Ctrl+Alt+Esc then it says cant open /dev/sr0 live medium file or something like that. then it finishes that and says Unable to find a medium containing a live file system. I dont know what to do please help.

    Dell XPS 15
    Intel core i5 2.67Ghz 64 bit
    Intel HD Integrated Graphics
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M
    Intel Wifi link 1000 BGN

    Try booting on another machine see if it works there or not, that way you can tell if it's the USB or your Hardware.

    I don't know, however now that you know that it's not the USB you can start troubleshooting.
