    Exclamation Back|Track 3 Beta startup problems

    I am new to forums though I have been working with computers since I was 4. I am 28 now so I have a good working knowledge. If this is a duplicate post my apologies as I have searched the forums and not found what I was looking for. Anyway, down to it:

    I have downloaded BT3 Beta and cannot get it to load on my laptop. I have an old Gateway 600ygr I have brought back from the dead to tinker with. I have burned the ISO twice and they work on my desktop and one of my friends desktops. MD5 checks out on the downloaded ISO image and I have used two different programs to burn the images thinking there might be a problem with the software used to do the job.

    When I boot up the Live CD it hangs on UDEV trigger event. Sometimes it will allow me to ctrl-c past this but even then it hangs on the sysklog line.

    I have this laptop setup as a dual boot system with WinXP and Back|Track 2 Final and it works fine with both OS's.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried any Cheatcodes from the wiki?
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    boot bt in debug mode

    ..........

    when in the cool boot menu

    highlight one option hit tab

    insert 'debug' without quotes in the line and hit enter

    at each important step you will be thrown to a shell and will be able to do some basic ops
    hit CTRL+D to continue to next step

    ...........

    hope helps

    Otherwise, appreciate the help guys.

    Couldn't get debug to work either. Does anyone know if BT3 has different hardware requirements than BT2 as the latter boots up perfectly on my laptop?
