Welcome to the Knoppix.net forum!

I receive the error message as follows:
There was a similar post regarding an error like the one you have encountered. You might want to look there for a possible solution: http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21768

I'm not sure what the relation to the Award Bios is, but if you have a similar bios as the poster did in the above thread, you might wish to look at their solution.

Other than that, I would otherwise suspect a media or file corruption issue. Possibly a corrupt disc, iso file, or a drive-media mis-match. I would look at the documentation link if you are unceratain:http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Downloading_FAQ Be sure to look over the entire article and pay close attention to the item about burning the disc at a slow speed. It does seem to make a difference with many drives.

Are you able to get to the start up splashscreen prompt (boot:_), or does it halt before that?

Let us know how you make out.
