If you are using a USB connected drive then hit the Tab key and add

waitusb=5

Pressing the function keys lists waitusb as needed for slow devices.

not using a usb device, booting off cdrom, will try your recommendation

Hi lmart
After it boots, does dmesg indicate any errors?

RobertS:
CorePlus-4.4 presents the menu you printed below.
CorePlus-4.5.1 never makes it to the menu.  It responds exactly as I reported.

Rich:
Not familiar with dmesg; what specifically would you like me to check?
Also, when it boots, a lot of messages fly by on the screen.  What can I do to capture that output, review it and, send it to you if necessary?

Is there any possibility that the iso file on the download page is corrupt?

Thanks.

Ah, then check your md5sum of the iso or perhaps a bad burn?

Server side checks out OK.

RobertS:
In my 1st post, I identified the iso, the md5sum check and the burn log.  Since my original post, I downloaded the iso 3 separate times and, burned the iso 3 spearate times; no difference in the outcome.

To help me help you, what else should I provide to help you troubleshoot?

Your first post shows you burning Core-4.5.1.iso not CorePlus-4.5.1.iso.

Hi lmart
I think gerald_clark identified you problem, but for future reference,   dmesg | less   will allow you to see what dmesg
reported. PageUP/PageDown to navigate, q to quit.
Also, change your cdrecord command to insert some padding like this:
Code: [Select]
cdrecord dev=1,0,0 speed=10 padsize=63s -pad -dao -v -eject Filename.isoUse:
Code: [Select]
cdrecord -scanbusto make sure you are using the correct drive.

Thanks.  I posted the wrong output.  The corrected output follows.  Wondering if the iso on the download site is corrupt.

gerald_clark & Rich:

  • downloaded the iso
  • burned cd using Rich's suggestion
  • followed RobertS tab, waitusb=5 suggestion
Same results!
