CD does not boot on Real Hardware!

When I try to boot the CD-ROM (Live-CD or Install-CD) I got an error massage "Error find the super block!" (orr something like this).
What's wrong?

Because of ReactOS's very early pre-alpha state, it commonly does not work on certain hardware. If that is the case with your system, create a bug report on bugzilla with information about your system (optical drive and motherboard/system model are all that's needed I think) and this error info. But before you do that, make sure that you can boot to other bootable CDs in the first place.

Hopefully the devs will be able to fix this incompatibility. They may ask you to test out new development versions in order to do so.
