fedora 19 live cd does not start

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert live cd, boot computer
2.choose "start fedora live" from startup textmenu
cd spins for a while but screen stays completely black, no error messages, no graphics, just black screen. After a while CD stops spinning.
Startup of fedora live
This happens on a Dell Latitude D620 laptop that actually has Ubuntustudio 12.04 on it.
I have another very similar laptop (Dell Latitude D630) that has Fedora18 on it. On this second laptop fedora 19 live works without a problem.
I just realised my mistake. Since the fedora live CD I used was downloaded from a 64bit machine, is was the 64bit version of Fedora 19 live, so I guess it's not even supposed to work on a i686 architecture (which both above-mentioned DELL laptops are).
So I suppose what I submitted is not a bug, just a proof of my clumsiness . However, I still wonder 1. Why did it work on the 2nd Dell laptop, since it was not supposed to ? and 2. If it worked on the second laptop, why not on the first ?
Sorry for the incorrect bug report.
