I'm having the same problem with Sabayon Linux 3.3b Live CD
I have a Win XP SP1 on my Area-51m laptop with VirtualBox 1.4.0 for Windows Hosts.
Whenever I boot to the Sabayon Live CD, a big Sabayon splash screen appears (the one with that chicken or penguin feet)-- same as the screenshot posted in this thread by mikeyao1.
I have successfully installed Ubuntu 7.0.4, PCLinuxOS 2007, Damn Small Linux, Mandriva Spring One 2007, Fedora 7, Knoppix 5.5.1, Win 3.11, Win 95, Win XP Pro, Windows Server 2003, and even BartPE. (I forgot the other distros and OS).
What are these cheat codes you're referring to. I don't see on the WIKI any details regarding this bug/error.
Can you be more specific as to what or where can I find these cheat codes.
