If this is your first LFS then consider it to be a matter of days.
However, it seems odd that no distro would run on your laptop. When you burned the CD/DVD did you choose the slowest setting? I generally use the slowest to avoid errors.
Its hardware related I assure you.
Its the newest laptop from HP.
The linux distros work on my other computer but it is several years old.
I have compiled a complete LFS distro a couple times before but It was on MUCH older hardware.
Oh and yes I always burn a CD at the lowest settings with Linux distros.
