Live CD Boot Fails

Running a HP pavilion a705w
Using a LiveCD 11.1 KDE 4
What should I put in Failsafe Boot Settings
so that I can step through the boot process.
At this time the boot process starts and the screen eventually just freezes and I can’t
determine where it aborts.
I did validate the cd integrity and will try the
CD on another machine.

In the boot options below on the menu, type “splash=verbose” (w/o) quotes; that will suppress the boot splash. Or, after selecting and hitting Enter, hit the Escape key; that will drop the splash. Either way, you will see scrolling text as the kernel boots.
