Maybe try Ubuntu as pass.

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
