I recall having seen this glitch or similar when you start a computer with a disc in the optical drive.

Try booting as you do, but after you hit Enter and the text starts scrolling by, as soon as the light on the optical drive extinguishes, take the disc out. After the system has settled down and the desktop is stabilized, try inserting the disc again and test.

Have Vl 7.2 STD RC3.1 installed to actual hardware and booting with the install dvd

If I remove the install dvd after boot and place a dvd movie in the drive, the dvd appears on the desktop as icon and opening thunar I can view the content. It will also play in smplayer unlike .avi and mp4 files.

however if I remove the dvd movie and place another in the drive the icon remains on the desktop and in thunar from the previous movie. I am required to eject in thunar via right click select for this operation.

Is this also required with a normal install or would ejecting the disk via the optical drive open button clear the way for a new disk?

Knoppix obviously uses gvfs or similar to show the audio tracks:

So, is it an audio CD or what kind of data is in this disc?

So it is an audio CD? Those don't have a a real file system on them, and need to be accessed using a media player or audio ripper.

You shouldn't need to worry about the "signed" bit then.

Have you tried grub-probe?

Error reading bootsector: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sr0': Input/output error

This error indicates a problem with the optical drive, or the medium in it.  If several different CD/DVDs show the same error, suspect hardware in the drive, cable or controller.

but smplayer can play it.
but file manager can't see contents inside.

hi,
I checked the BIOS system setup on my laptop, and it doesn't have an option for the "secure boot" or enabling UEFI as I've seen on other (newer) laptops.
I've read the post you pointed out but I still don't understand if I can set up grub to provide the signature at the update or if I have to deal with the issue with the systemd config on the newly installed distro.
