could you scroll up again (shift + PageUp)

what I'd like to know is how this message start, my guess is a problem in using the disk, or a problem with using the memory

The kernel didn't even get initialized. We're lucky it could even do this output. Scrolling back isn't going to work.

It looks to me like either a bad ISO download, bad DVD burn, or bad memory. Try typing "memtest" at the "boot:" prompt and let the memory test program run a while. If that's OK, check your ISO's MD5 checksum against the site's MD5 checksum for a good download. If that's also good, compare the DVD and the ISO with the cmp command (should see either no output, or EOF on the ISO file, if it is good).

You don't need to burn the .iso to DVD to use it "virtually".
