i had that once too with a 'crappy' notebook of a friend, where his
cdrom drive was very old/much used, and therefore the lens wasn't as
sharp anymore as it should be.. resulting in the behaviour that disk
verifying went well (or any read that was attempted 'many times until
good'), where as actually running the system (on the same drive) didn't
(bailing out with read errors after a few unsuccessful reads).
these sort of things are very annoying, but they are hardware (or
rather, firmware of the hardware) dependent and there's nothing we can
do about it from a debian-live point of view.
 optical slim-drives as common in notebooks are rather prone to that
phaenomenon, caused by the cheaper-than-cheap manufacturing of
these devices these days.
