booting centos6.2 live cd on vista computer

Postby jon123 » 2012/03/06 18:37:12

when i try to boot the live cd 6.2 i get the splash screen and then a repeating message:

mount:/dev/mapper/live-rw already mounted or /sysroot busy
mount:/dev/mapper/live-rw already mounted or /sysroot busy
mount:/dev/mapper/live-rw already mounted or /sysroot busy
mount:/dev/mapper/live-rw already mounted or /sysroot busy
...etc

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to Kill init!

how do i get the live cd to boot on my vista desktop?

thanks

Is that 64-bit disk? Can you try with a 32 bit disk?

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

The OS on the computer should not be relevant. Have you verified the media? Have you tried the LiveCD on any other hardware?

I checked the md5 and sha1 and they don't match so maybe the file gets changed in the download? I think i got it off stanford
http i will try to download again from another server.
