  Lucid Live CD/USB freezes shortly after start

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I downloaded the ubuntu lucid amd64 final iso and did the sha256sum. I
  created a live USB and also burned the iso on a disc. Both produced
  the same error:

  When I let it boot from the USB/CD it shows the purple splash with the
  "keyboard equals human"-icon, after that goes onto a black screen with
  a blinking cursor. When using the CD you can hear the CD spin down and
  no activity on the laptop.

  When I press the keyboard while booting, I can choose different
  options, options "try ubuntu", "install ubuntu" and "check for errors"
  all fail in the same way.

  As I'm not able to do much, I can't use apport or read logs (unless
  there is a way to do so?) I'll put as much information about this
  laptop as I'm able to find:

  Intel® Core™ Duo T6600
  (2.20 Ghz - 2 MB L2 cache)
  15.6" LED widescreen
  WXGA (1366 x 768 pixels)
  Mobile GM45 chipset
  VGA: Mobile Intel® GMA 4500MHD
  And it has currently Windows 7 installed

  Thanks for reading this bug report, and hopefully this can be fixed?

  EDIT: little detail though: when it hangs, I can reboot by pressing
  ctrl - alt - printScr - B
