Fedora Boot Error

When booting using the Fedora 12 dvd. I get the following errors.

Fail in evaluating the _REG object of the EC device. Broken Bios is suspected.
DRHD: handling fault status reg f0001ffb
Kernal panic - not syncing: DMAR hardware is malfunctioning

I have a hp pavillion pv7 laptop with widows 7 and I have unallocated a section of the hard drive to install Fedora.

Any guidance?

First, retry with a CD instead.

Also, be sure to verify the download image.
You may need to burn at a slower speed.

Thanks, I will try that. I was able to get Ubuntu to install with no errors so I will run with that for a while.
