In Safeboot mode, I am able to see an error message referring to ACPI but it loops so fast that I can not read it.
Thanks for the help!

Error: No suitable media for the livecd content found.
Workaround: Copy the content of the livecd from your boot device to an IDE/SATA disk

The specs are Satellite A205-S7456 Core 2 Duo T5250, 2gig ram, 120G serial HD, Intel graphics, lan, wi-fi etc. I load from 8Gig HP usb setup with Unetbootin and set the bios to boot from CD, USB, HDD in that order. You need at least 1Gig of ram to do this.
