Hi

as no-one has replied yet and I do not run Ubuntu.....do you have any Linux machines or just this one live product?

2) Do you have an Intel CPU or AMD?

3) How did you make this live product .....and on what Operating system

If we are unable to inject a new microcode.....because you have a cdr....non-writeable disk
you may be better off....looking for an alternative product.

And I would suggest you look to flash an usb stick to make it a writeable live product.
