humm - it installed okay so i am guessing the media and what not is good.
AT the bootloader (i.e. GRUB) line hit 'e' then move to the end of the line that has vmlinuz on it and enter [b]1[b/] . This will boot it up with minimal stuff stuff running and we can see how far it gets.
BTW - how far it is getting? Does it die while it is uncompressing the kernel? any mention of not being able to mount something?
