Ophcrack USB problem

Hi

I have downloaded ophcrack onto a USB and used it to successfully boot from a Dell PC. It then does what it does and cracks passwords. However I also tried it on two other PCs both HP, one fairly new the other a couple of years old. Neither time did it work. It got so far then froze.

I have previously used the live CD with success on the machines the USB version is having trouble with, but I need to test the USB version to see if it can bypass controls locking the CD drive.

Can anyone think of a reason why that might be?

Thanx

If the computer can boot from the memory stick then all security is lost. It freezing during boot doesn't mean other will.
