I have checked MD5 and it's good.

I burned the CD using ROXIO at 4X

CD will boot to boot: and stop temporarily.

Then loads two files out of the /boot and screen goes blank/black.

From reading the forums I guess it is a driver for my laptop.

I made a USB drive, but I do not know how to get my laptop to boot from the USB. I have the USB drive connected when booting from the CD.

I don't know what to do next.

Thanks.
