    For those pining for a torrent, I've uploaded one to Mininova here:

    I'll leave my machines on for as long as I can, which would be pretty long - easily twelve to eighteen hours.

      I am having this same issue. I also tried the Safe Graphics Mode and acpi=off, but I'm stuck at the login prompt every time.

      * Checking battery state...          [OK]

      PTS Desktop Live 2009.3 (Gernlinden)
      Gernlinden login:
      All the * items show as [OK] during boot, but there are a few errors towards the beginning. Pressing the pause key does nothing. They scroll by too fast for me to write them all down, but here is what I managed to get:

      /init: line 1: can't open /dev/sda: no such file
      unable to open '/dev/sda'
      /init: line 1: can't open /dev/sdb: no such file
      unable to open '/dev/sdb'
      sed:/root (something, something) splash
      unable to open
      I guess I can't look at the boot log if I can't even log in...

      As for my hardware, it's the Asus Maximus III Formula with an i7-860 and 2x2GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 sticks. Graphics is the PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX 580. I've tried burning this to a DVD-R as well as using UbuntuLiveUSBImager to make a persistent bootable usb version.

      What steps do I need to take to troubleshoot this?
