Testers wanted for booting this ISO from USB stick.

Boots correctly on:

Intel D865GBFLK motherboard with Pentium 4 2.8E GHz processor

Intel D945GTP motherboard with Pentium D 945 processor

Intel D945GNT motherboard with Pentium D 945 processor

Intel DQ67SWT motherboard with Core i7-2600S processor

Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with Core 2 T7400 processor
