[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

maverick live cd won't boot
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
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.
