Two suggestions (guesses, really):  Try other boot options, like fail-safe.
I have several machines running Sidux and they act differently to the live
CD.  Still no joy?  Download Sidux again and burn another CD - at low speed.
A not-quite-right copy may work ok one one machine, but not on another.

At present, I have Sidux installed on five machines.  Works great!

Thanks for the reply,

I burned a cd again, but still the same problem.  The other boot options also didn't help.

I don't even understand what the error messages mean.
