Dell 9 Mini - now on distro 3 - cannot get any installed
My Dell Mini 9 is driving me nuts.
I wanted to try and get Vector Linux running on it as it worked brilliantly on a laptop before.
I boot from USB and get the live cd version running fine (i tried unetbootin for the install version and it won't create a bootable image). When i come to install i get part way (usually about 30%) before the screen goes black and just have a cursor.
Now compared to the other distros that is good going:
Ubuntu - will run on laptop won't boot on dell mini
Mint - will run on laptop - won't boot on dell mini
as Vector is the preferred choice and it gets further than any of the others i'd like to try and persist with this. Equally though i'd happily try another (downloading pc linux now as this has been in the past one of the few distros to seamlessly install and just work)
any suggestions most welcome!
