Some NVIDIA GeForce cards don't work well with the open-source driver provided by the Black Lab Linux kernel. If Black Lab Linux freezes during boot, use the "nomodeset" boot option in grub.
Some Virtual Machine setups will not allow boot into Live mode, if this occurs boot into the direct installer from the boot menu.
