booting stuck at "Loading linux24......"
I downloaded and burnt a DSL 4.4.3 and tried booting it with default options from a intel celeron m thinkpad r51 as well as a dell inspiron amd64 machine but no matter how many times I try the booting stops at the first screen itself saying "Loading linux24...." and nothing after that.

I have got older DSL versions working but I dunno what is the problem with booting on these machines.

Kindly suggest how to troubleshoot this error. Any help is greatly appreciated.

DSL 3.3 seems to boot fine into GUI. and even DSL 4.4 iso has been checked for exact matching MD5 checksum. what can be the problem?

re-burnt the iso to another cd and that seemed to work fine. the difference between both the times were that in the first case i used an ibm thinkpad r51 with intel celeron M with infrarecorder on windows xp with speed set to lowest possible speed and disk-at-once method whereas in 2nd case (success case), i used a dell inspiron 1501 n-series amd turion 64x2 with K3B on kubuntu gutsy 64bit also with DAO and lowest speed setting.

why did the burn go bad/improper in the first instance?

Thanks and appreciation in anticipation
