Hi,

i also experienced the same problem as above. I boot on stable version cd (2007-11-xx) but when it come to grub, it stop and I'm left with grub> command line. I don't see any error it just don't load kernel. I don't see how I can load the kernel.

I am using a laptop ( toshiba tecra s1 ) and I checked md5 checksum on the second iso I downloaded. The first iso I've downloaded (and burned) did the same thing.

I tried everything, pressed enter, used the kernel, help and other commands but I can't see how to load the kernel.

Sometimes the CD-RW doesn't burn very well at high speeds. Could you try burning at a lower speed for a more reliable burn? On Windows I use Nero that also verifies CDs after they are burnt. You could maybe try that too.

Just downloaded the latest testing build and had the same problem, the CD just boots to a Grub> prompt; tried re-burning at a slower speed and now it boots OK.

... seems some drives have problems with cd-rw's. Slowing the speed at burning and reading helps mostly.
