[ale] OT: osol CD won't boot

Try reburning the CD and turn the burn speed down to the slowest setting.
The cd drive may be having issues reading the disk. I have seen this with
older drives no liking a CD burned at high speeds. The drive I burned in was
used to verify the disk checksum but the target drive was very unhappy. Ran
the burn speed to 2x and all went fine.

I seem to recall this a media problem and not really an old drive problem.
