I downloaded LMDE 201204 and I installed it on USB Stick using Virtual Box in Windows 7 (64bit).
The installation was successful since I checked the USB stick installation integrity by direct booting
from the USB stick on one of my old notebooks it worked flawlessly.
But I can not use that USB installed linux on my Alienware M11x - R3 (Optimus GTX-540M / Sandy Bridge i7)
since when it boots it shows only "GRUB loading" and then "Welcome to GRUB" and then nothing else everything freezes (I don't know whats wrong behind GRUB -> GRUB is already installed on USB Stick)
Is there any solution to the problem like deactivating acpi,napic,text mode console,....in GRUB?
I dont' have a lot of configuration in my BIOS to work with (no possibility to switch Graphic cards in BIOS)
I am pretty sure the the linux mint must work on my M11x .
