Can not load Fedora live cd 12


HP Pavilion dv6.
Dual system already with Windows 7 and SUSE.

Want to take a look of Fedora live CD, but got the message like below.

Code:
Fail in evaluating the _REG object of EC device.  Broken bios is suspected.

DRHD: handling fault status reg f0001ffb

Kernel panic -not syncing: DMAR hardware is malfunctioning
The disk has 4 partitions.

one for windows, one for linux swap partition, one for linux, the last one is the Recovery partition for HP.

Code:
wget http://path/to/iso
Burn image on CD-RW and be sure md5 matches.


2. Have you tried other Live media?
3. Have you tried adding
Code:
noapic nolapic acpi=off
to the boot argument?

Even I just used the version 12, but I tried download it from different computers even with different connections. I burned them onto disk or made boot-able USB key for several times. No of them work. Let me take a lot of MD5. I can not feel that is a problem.

There is nothing wrong with the cd. I used the same on installed Fedora in a virtualbox under opensuse.

Could somebody told me what will happened under the virtualbox. Looks like I need setup nothing, and I can not setup anything under the virtual Fedora environment. Nothing, I even can not find a way to adjust the screen resolution there.

Thats very interesting. I have a HP Pavilion dv6 and I get the exact same message any time I boot a linux distibution. Well at least Fedora and Mint. Fedora seems as though functions perfectly though after its booted.

But as I mentioned I installed opensuse on that same laptop already. I have not problem at that time.

I also tried Ubuntu live DISK on that computer before, but it is OK too.

I only face the problem with Fedora Live CD.

I just checked some other distros. Like you, Open Suse was fine but Ubuntu gave me the same error message. This doesn't make too much sense seeing as we have the same laptop. What is the exact model of yours? Mine is a DV6 1359WM. I bet yours is slightly different and it must be something to do with the differing hardware.

Above all !! Do a memory check on new installs, it will surprise you about bad memory.

Add to the end of the Kernel line "nomodeset" (without quotes)
