hi people, i have decided to put F16 LXDE on my old acer but when i boot from the live usb it just goes to the syslinux screen saying" Boot_" and just sits there blinking the cursor? can some kind soul tell me how to solve this,have tried searching the forum and google but cannot seen to find a fix,Cheers.

Ok, got it to boot, but now im getting,

Nice, you just solved the issue.
What have you done to do so, or what was the cause for it?

Dont no what the issue was, just chose boot into basic graphic mode and it has worked? possibly a problem with my hardware or even the usb drive? other than that i dont have a clue.

Not enough RAM for a full graphical install program on that one.
