    What is the Issue?:
    Reaver Pro Boot failed Run Reaver Pro from CD Drive Two options appear on screen live - boot the Live System install - start the installer directly Tried both options but everytime each giving me this message: Boot failed, press a key to retry....​

    LiveCD sometimes are more sensitive to errors and its slow to boot. LiveUSB is a better option ;) . If you prefer LiveCD, burn another copy and use slower speed when writting.

    I tried burning to DVD RW at the slowest speed 4X and
    come up with the error when booting.

    Loading
    Invalid or corrupt Kernel image
    boot:

    Then I tried burning to a DVD at 4X
    and come up with the error.

    Loading isolinux:Disk error 20, AX=4200, drive EF
    Boot failed: press a key to retry...

    In all cases I see no problem in the burning process
    as the following messages appeared.

    Burn process completed successfully at 4X
    Data verification completed successfully

    Anyone has burn Reaver Pro successfully?

    Sounds like you are not making it bootable.....

    Create a Live ISO on USB with all the bootable files required. Or check this list out:

    Remember Reaver Pro is Ubuntu

    I have both LiveCD and LiveUSB. Both no problem with booting but I prefer USB coz it boots faster:)

    Firmware update for your drive (if one is available) wouldn't hurt either Geek

    smeagol stated that:
    Worked with Xiaopan...maybe it will work with RP as well.

    Thanks guys for all the comments.
    I finally got it working by downloading
    the 4 parts version Reaver Pro.
    It seems that the file I previously
    got Reaver Pro 1204.iso is only
    167mb size. Not quite sure how I got
    that one though.

    Tested run the Live CD. OK
