    Default livecd boot hangs on isolinux screen

    The screen where it says isolinux, version number, some dudes name, and under that is a blinking underscore cursor. Then after a few minutes my laptop shuts off.

    I'm almost positive I burned the cd correctly, too.

    my computer is an Acer Aspire 5100. if you need any other info let me know

    also im using a livecd cause i wanna check out everything before i overwrite bt2 with this (unless i decide to wait for the final version).

    but if you guys recommend i just overwrite it (as in i shouldn't see any problems with 'normal' use) then ill go ahead and do that

    Just remember that it IS beta software and as such you should expect "undocumented features"

    woah no need to get mad, I DO know the forum rules, and I figured that a boot problem (where it hangs) that I thought it was a bug of some sort, not software (which I figured would be 'programs' like aircrack, or problems with wifi.

    Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions

    well I assumed the most frequently and popular programs used would have been tested more than the less used programs.

    i fixed it. I realized that when I was burning the image to a dvd (cause i didn't have any CDs), it would load isolinux, but to get into the bt3 folder, it wasn't able to since the filesystems on dvd's are different than that of cd's. I didn't know that, i figured that if i burned it as a dvd, it didn't matter.

    anyway DVD Decryptor did the job
