Comment (by Luposian):

 Ok, after creating the CD-R in K3B in Lubuntu (from your Anyboot image),
 the disc boots fine in AHCI, on my Aspire 5560 Laptop.  But... upon
 testing it on my Aspire X1200 desktop, it wouldn't boot!

 This didn't make any sense, until I noticed, the drive light never even
 blinked during bootup... and, upon trying to view ANY discs, they NEVER
 show up in Vista!  When I try to open the drive (to view the contents of a
 given CD), in Windows Vista, it tells me device D: isn't ready or

 My theory?  My drive is dead!  Overnight... just... POOF!  Gone!  I will
 try putting it on a different SATA channel later on, and see if that makes
 it work, but if not, then I need to get a new DVD drive, because I don't
 have a spare!  And, right now, I don't have the money to buy a
 replacement, either, so... it may be awhile til we find out if the disc
 boots on that system, for which this ticket was created.

 I could boot it from a USB thumb drive, I think, but that won't prove
 anything concerning AHCI on that system.

 That being said, do we assume this ticket is closed (because it boots on
 my Acer Aspire 5560 laptop (that's actually an even BETTER situation than
 I hoped for!)) or do we leave it open til I can test it on the X1200
 Desktop, which is the reason I opened this ticket to begin with?
