LXF169 DVD won't boot (fedora 18)

Postby blarney » Mon Feb 25, 2013 3:11 pm

All I get is MACHINE ERROR in big letters and then its stuck in an infinite loop of rebooting...

This pcspecialist laptop is a Clevo W250EUQ using an AMI BIOS ver. 4.6.5

Normally runs Linux Mint 13 KDE with no problems and have booted other disks without problem.

Cheers,

UPDATE: Still had the same problem with the latest LXF DVD's. It seems to only happen if I restart to boot. If I shutdown and then boot up they work.

Very odd... and most of my older CD/DVD's work fine whichever way I boot from them.

Is this a bizarre hardware fault or something different in the way Live CD/DVD's are created? Linux User DVD's don't work from a restart either...

I guess it has to be something about my hardware/BIOS as I havent heard of anyone else with this problem...

Cheers,
