View Full Version : Fedora 11 does not start live cd or live usb
15th November 2009, 04:20 AM
Im having a problem trying to start the live media. It just doesn`t start the desktop screen... When it is starting, sudenly the screen turns all black and the mouse pointer doesn't move at all.
I had reboot whit both live media, CD and USB, and its the same thing.
Note: Im running it on a toshiba L305D

First of all, did you verify the checksum of your download? Did you verify the burned disk (there is an option on the boot menu to verify the disk)?

Thanks for the reply... btw, sorry for my english because my native languaje is spanish.
I already did it. Cheksum and verify disk are ok.
I tried to boot in virtualbox and there is no problem starting the live media.
I think is a hardware issue of my notebook. Do i have to do it using other way?

You could try the DVD, because it would not boot into a graphical desktop. But I suspect there are issues with your graphics card. Did you try the solutions mentioned in the Installation Guide?
Just as an info, the Installation Guide is also available in Spanish.
