Linux Mint install problems
I had installed Linux Mint a few times, on several machines. But I never ran into this problem. Got a 2011 HP laptop, with a 64bit structure, 4GB RAM (running on Windows 7) and I used the DVD install disk for LM 12 64bit. All I am getting is the initial Linux screen that says 'booting in xx seconds'. Then the screen goes dark. The DVD drive makes a lot of sounds, but absolutely nothing happens. So after 3 or 4 minutes I try another LM 12 64bit disk. Same problem. I tried a LM11 32bit, which I had around. This one loads, with some error messages that pop up initially, and the colors are at first all messed up. Eventually LM 11 is ready. However, it does not detect my Wireless Internet connection. The rest works. Discouraging... Would appreciate your comments and help. Thanks.
