January 20, 2010 09:25AM
Dear Thanatermesis,
after trying the unstable version and failing to boot with that I made a payemnt and got the elive Gem stable version. Unfortunately I am unable to boot into my new(er) desktop or Old pentium 4 laptop.Checked the MD5, no prob's there. What gives ? can esily boot into linuxmint live cd on both systems with same CD's. What now ?

an update, I tried the eliveCD on an intel celeron 1.6Ghz Sony Vaio ultra portable and it did boot successfully but eventually wasn't able to get to the desktop. After trying various OS including other Distro's , burning ISO's on the same media why is that only elive has issuess ? I was hoping for this to work for me as I did think this would be the Distro I would install on my daughter's laptop but ALAS ! so far the best out of the box has been MINT in which everything and I mean Everything including bluetooth/ WiFi etc etc worked.
I really wish that these issues could be ironed out for the "Enlightenment " of all.
