    Unhappy BrackTrack BETA 3 Boot Screen Issue


    I just download - bt3b141207.iso , from backtrack site link, and burn it, at the lowest speed, as a read on a post, anyway...

    1 - Changed the setting in the BIOS - CDROM Boots 1

    2 - Its load up to the Boot Screen, were its gives you the different GUI options..

    3 - Once I try to select either one, its its goes blank... I wait and wait and nothing, I've tried Av - normal anf off but still nothing

    What could doing this and how do I solve this...

    Any help would be greatfull...

    What about some hardware details and stuff mate?

    Have you checked your hardware against the HCL (Hardware compatibility list) on the wiki?

    It could be (Although I'm only going from personal exp!) an unsupported video driver. Do you use Graphics or on-board? Desktop or laptop? Just stick it all in your specs and I will get back ASAP

    I Copied the Image to the DVD --- 2.4 mb per minute, and to my suprize the dam DVD disk loaded....

    Go figure...

    AR5007EG seem to be such a populer car, thats why i don't understand why BT2 or BT3 don't support it, I can understand the generic one, but the Tamosoft one is another issue all together about 65% of all the acer are using it and toshibas, so can't see it being such a rubish card...

    I've also tried intalling patches - Drivers....

    But at the end it just usuless... as soon as you reboot it becomes useless...

    I think someone shouldjust make a turitorial for all the noobs...

    basicly a list of commonds to get u on a quick start...

    another thing make it automaticly save the setting... why must a user sit and save stuff every time --- Change1.lzm , change2.lzm... Its just not practical...

    Please I do not mean to offende anyone, i do know it takes hours of coding to get stuff working, and i'm gratefull to all the people who helped design the program, it does make thing much simpler than installing all the programs your self and ect, at the moment as a noob my self i find it hard... and i probely speak for most people...

    But because we a have a erge to learn we try hard to adapt...
    in the end.. its fustrative... and we end up giving up...

    I know everyones posting stuff for noobs but half the time im think....
    U'hm English please... as a windows person or even a mac ... linux is totaly chinesse...

    basicly what im asking could someone please just give us a hand with this dam AR5007EG...

    its like criptonight.. to BT
