My problem is very similar to this post http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,97393.0.html
except it happens with a brand new Sony VAIO
CPU IntelCore i5 2430M 2.4GHz
Memory 4 GB
HD Hitachi 600 GB
It loads a recent version of MINIME as well as the KDE 2011.6 without a problem (I know I can always update). I created the new 2011.09 CD on an older VAIO and it can be booted up on this older VAIO. The MD5sum checks out perfectly. Here's what happens: the CD boots up to just after mounting loop image. I blieve there are two lines with "acpid" in it and there the screen turns blank and stays that way. That happens no matter which boot line I am using. I want to get rid of W and want to do it with the very latest. Any suggestions?
Edit: I tried the latest full monty and have the same problems - help, pinoc
