Bug Description

when running disc test on a newly generated CD from the distro,
I get a blank screen with no information displayed. this has
been ongoing for some time now.

can provide hardware details if necessary:
dual core amd 64 with nvidia display

memtest works fine.

when running disc test it spends time accessing the CD
with the activity light almost continuous and then acts
like it finished the test as <cr> reboots the disc.

affects: ubuntu → linux (Ubuntu)

I've been able to recreate this using both the i386 and amd64 Ubuntu desktop CDs from 20091016 in kvm.

The alternate CD works fine.

When running it from the desktop CD I did notice a white Ubuntu logo flash for a second and then saw nothing.

I've been unable to reproduce this with today's i386 desktop CD in kvm. Maybe a usplash bug that's been fixed?
