Cant get Linux Mint Live USB To Boot With GUI
I'm trying to dual boot my new Acer V5-122p with the pre-installed Windows 8 and Linux Mint 15 Mate. The laptop doesn't have a DVD drive, so I have to boot through USB. When I boot Mint in UEFI mode, the Mint logo appears as if it's going to work, but then it just goes to essentially a command line and gives me an error saying, "Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?" It basically ends telling me, "The x server is now disabled. Restart MDM when it is configured correctly."
Someone suggested I try:
sudo Xorg -configure
("Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed. Server terminated with error (2). Closing log file.")
sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
("cp: cannot stat '/root/xorg.conf.new' : No such file or directory")
The command, startx, also throws the error: "Fatal server error: no screens found" and "xinit: unable to connect to x server: Connection refused")
I have disabled secure boot. Ubuntu and Fedora do the same thing. If I boot in Legacy mode instead of EUFI, Mint will boot just fine.
I'm really running out of ideas, and I'm a noob, so I don't even know what to try and search for. If anyone can help with this or point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it!
