You have probably checked this already but, you do have the cdrom at the 
top of the boot order on machine B, don't you?

Also is machine B a newer machine using uefi?  I just had a hard time 
installing Ubuntu to dual boot with Win 8 on a Toshiba laptop.  I could 
not get gpartd to boot on that machine either. Though, my symptoms where 
much different than yours.  I got far enough to make some choices about 
gpartd and keyboard layout before it stopped with an error 1 no display
