Ultimate Edition 5.0.1 live cd. (solved)

Postby RodT » Thu Sep 29, 2016 4:36 pm

i am trying to run Ultimate Edition.5.0.1 lite mate. every time i boot up i get the login request for username and password.
i enter ultimate and hit enter
password i just hit enter
then nothing.
i tried startx but i just get a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner.

did i miss something on boot up?

i really want to install this on my PC and dual boot. i already have 2 partitions set up for this.
i delegated 250GB for linux.( more than needed i know) LOL

i am running an older rig
AMD 9850BE
8 GB of DDR2
ATI radeon 7970

Maybe try Ubuntu as pass.

And now, the completely true facts, as told by an anonymous man hiding behind a screen name:

Packard Bell Pack Mate II 286 Intel 80286 1MB RAM

problem wasn't the password. i knew it was ultimate.
my radeon 7970 was the culprit. funny it took me almost 24 hours to remember that.
It has been over 10 years since i have that much of a problem,maybe because my old video card was nvidia LOL
i had to tab in before booting and remove the last part and enter noacpi.
worked like a charm on both the DVD and usb thumb drive. although i will say
running the live dvd off of a thumb drive is much faster than a DVD rom for sure
