Hello Linux community,
I believe spent enough time (4 full evening) trying to find answer to my questions but had no luck so far so I decided to ask for help.
I am trying to install Linux Mint Debian Edition 201204 32bit on IBM ThinkPad T40p with 1GB of RAM, 1.5GHz CPU and 160GB Samsung HDD.
Live DVD boots with no problems, I can connect to Wifi but when i want to start the install I am not given the option to format the hard drive and install LMDE. I was forced to play around with partitions and found out I had to create partition and mark it as \ for installation to start.
Problem is after installation completes and I reboot the system Thinkpad keeps trying to boot over network and even if I select manually boot from HDD it fails to start. I don't understand why it can't start automatically on blank non-formatted HDD? All of the tutorials and documentation suggest there is automated install?
Appreciate any help you can provide
