Problem installing on an Acer Aspire One

I have an AOA110. It's the old one with 512MB RAM and an 8GB SSD (the
faster Samsung model.)

It runs Linpus. I'd like to replace this with something newer.

It will boot Ubuntu (well, Mint 9) off an /install/ on a USB stick, no problems.

What it won't do is boot any live distro. I've tried Ubuntu 11.10,
Meego and ChromeOS. They just display the SYSLINUX message and then
freeze solid.

The BIOS is current, but I've updated it just in case.

There are few options to twiddle in this machine.

Anyone have any idea what's up?
