I'm afraid this is most likely due to your system having a slightly
flaky bios. grub tends to be less forgiving than isolinux, which is the
more commonly used CD bootloader.  We might try and move later versions
of the demo CD over to isolinux, but the grub problems seem to only
affect a small minority of users, and some of them reported success with
a bios upgrade.
