You haven't said what your hardware is, and this is just a wild guess.
But I have an old laptop which frequently hangs on cold boot from CD
(i.e. boot from power-on). Warm boot from an already running operating
system (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) works fine. Obviously, it's possible there's
something wrong with the image or with that particular burn of the image.
But try warm booting the Debian Live CD after booting something else
first. In fact, try warm booting from the hang of the cold boot.
That is one possibility. In the case of my laptop, the cold boot from
CD problem appears to be a BIOS bug.

Stephen:
Thanks for the reply. My hardware is a Supermicro X7DAL-E M/B a couple
of years old. I burned the image using Brasero from an Ubuntu laptop.
I tried your suggestion - Warm Boot - deliberately I probably had done
it before, without thinking, chasing this..

THX, Jack

Uh... do not tell me more :-)

Just burn a CD-R and you're done.
