Thanks for the replies. I can now get the boot process started but it halts and restarts my computer when it gets to the place shown in the attached image. Suggestions please?

Well since you have AMD FX, try to boot with "-v /amdfx" or "-v /amd(32 or 64 depending on your PC, try them all)" without quotes.
