I recently purchased a new computer, h77 chipset, ivybridge i5, and use the internal graphics card. I insalled on it win7 and left some free space on the hd for linux. win7 runs w/o problems.
When trying to install LMDE 201204 64-bit it hangs every time, either while indexing files, or while copying them to the hd. I downloaded the iso twice, checked the md5, tried two different usb disks (I used unetbootin to put the image on them). Hangs means everything is stuck. the mouse, keyboard, everything. only holding the power button for 5 seconds forces the machine off.
Googling, I only came up with this
. however, I don't know how to update the kernel before installation.
