http://ubuntuforums.org – Boot from USB stick halts "syslinux 4.03 2010-10-22 ..." and flashing cursor. Attempting to run USB live 11.10 x64, also tried natty and kubuntu 11.10 same results. HP laptop G71-340us BIOS .23 (latest), Patriot XT 8GB stick. 11.10 x64 live .iso /unetbootin win 565 +4GB persistance. Machine boots iso on CD fine but optical not preferred for running a live session. Anyone had this problem and solved on the G71 or like? Note tested USB stick on an ASUS/AMD desktop and it booted/ran fine there. (Hardware)
