I'm dabbling with xen, and tried downloading the Xen LiveCD 3.0 from http://www.xensource.com/xen/downloads/, via the torrent there. When I boot from this CD, I get dumped to a grub> prompt, and can't figure out how to go further.

I can't find an MD5SUM for that ISO. And when I check Xen on sourceforge, and try to download the ISO from there, the file is 0 bytes long.

More info: I tried the Xen 2.0.6 Live CD and got the same results - the "grub>" prompt.

So I tried different hardware. They both worked a treat on a fairly new AMD64 desktop system. The system they wouldn't boot from is an Acer Aspire 1313LC laptop.

Submitted a bug.
