FC10 boot process locks up

FC 10 install on PC.

FC 10-KDE-live cd boots and goes through the boot process, after it gets to the process of "Starting Cups" [OK]
After that the process just locks up.

The cd passes test and the sha1sum test.

I also used a FC10 Preview disk that I used to install with earlier on a Laptop, and it also locked up during boot.

I also put a FC8-Live cd in and it went all the way through to the desktop.

Something about FC10 on this PC that already has FC8 installed on it , is having troubles with booting on a Live Cd.

Any commands that I can feed to the boot process ??

There is nothing wrong with the cd, I put it into a another box and booted to Live Desktop.

You may have to change the bot commands for that particular H/W setup.
Have you tried noapic for example?
