5.2 cannot install or run live cd

Post by sinbsd » Sat Mar 27, 2010 15:06

Doesn't matter which option I select on the gnome live-cd.. text install, graphical or run from cd.. all three it starts to load the kernel and at 100% reboots my machine. Can't get past this.

Known issue?

Why on earth would you ask for help without even providing your Hardware configuration or any output?

Have you tried with the "cheat codes"?

Did you check the md5 of your downloaded iso?

Sounds like a bad DVD burn. Try again at 2x speed or lower.
