In 99% of cases, these are BIOS bugs.  Check to make sure there aren't any updates?
Comment 3 John Poelstra 2008-04-26 23:31:27 EDT
Will do. Is it unusual that I have never seen it in past Live releases?
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-28 22:43:50 EDT
I think we slightly switched video modes in syslinux, but it's still generally
bios bugs here.
Comment 5 John Poelstra 2008-04-29 12:51:49 EDT
I have the latest Dell Bios which is A07
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:13:00 EDT
