[Bug 659253] Re: maverick live cd won't boot


On a Dell Inspiron 8200 with Nvidia NV17 (64MB) graphics, I encountered
the same problem trying to boot Ubuntu or Lubuntu Saucy (13.10) Live

Entering 'help' at the boot: prompt produced a special boot menu, but
below the menu there was an option to simply press Enter to boot.  Doing
that resulted in booting to the Live desktop *without* the usual two
menu screens where I choose my Language and then choose to Try *buntu
Without Installing.

  maverick live cd won't boot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  The live cd for the Maverick release won't boot. Instead it just shows
  the following message:

  "graphics initialization failed
  Error setting up gfxboot

  Hitting enter at this point simply brings up the message "Loading
  bootlogo..." briefly only to go back to the previous message.

  The machine is an Intel Pentium M --Centrino laptop. The cd boots
  correctly in other pcs --checked media successfully.
