The CD drive always has difficulty booting from CD. I usually have to try a few times. Even with the nice Verbatim CDs, it tries to boot from the CD then reports "Failure" then boots Windows. But, reboot a few times and it finally succeeds booting the live-CD. This is a very old CD drive.
Anyway, I had the problem with the "black desktop", so fixed the script as already described, and all is fine. Xorg works fine.
