    With the appropriate boot parameters to boot your Live CD you shouldn't get to a Busy Box

    Try the most common ones first:
    noapic nolapic acpi=off irqpoll pci=noacpi pnpbios=off all_generic_ide vga=0x317 vga=771 vga=788 vga=789 vga=791
    One by one or in different combinations.
    The key parameter seems to be "acpi=off" Check CD and Install ran fine with this added to the boot options. However when it restarted after the install it obviously did not change the acpi setting and we went back to the original error.

    What exactly does acip do? (seems to have to do with power management and turning on/off fans from what google tells me) And how can I change the boot parameters?

    Thanks!

    You have to edit menu.lst and add it to the boot line permanently

    Will setting apci=off adversely affect system performance?
