Just checking - is *everything* the same?  For example is the media the
same?  Depending on a variety of things I've had issues with rewritable
media versus write-once media, etc.

The machine I test the release builds on before uploading them has a
Gigabyte motherboard (G31M-ES2L) with a sata drive in it so it's not a
generic "sata doesn't work" issue:

acd0: DVDROM <Optiarc DVD-ROM DDU1675S/1.10> at ata0-slave SATA150

If none of that helps we'd need more information about how far it gets
before it stops.
