I'm trying to boot a live cd with Ubuntu 12.04 on my ASUS X71SL laptop. I cant boot from USB, so I burned a CD, and changed the boot order everything. After booting the screen goes purple and changes to a black screen with a single blinking white underscore and doesn't move on. If I use the CD in another laptop it stay on the screen with the single white underscore for less than a second and goes to the Ubuntu screen with the white/orange dots.
So what could cause this problem, because the CD does work and my laptop does start to boot the live CD but just stops. So I think the CD and CD drive are fine what else could it be?
