Hi all, I have been trying to install LMDE 64 from a USB stick using multisystem. I had first run into the "calculating file indexes" hanging issue and used the fix suggested here. However, now when I boot into the live session, keyboard and mouse are both unresponsive.
I have tried adding nomodeset and noacpi options, I have tried unplugging either the keyboard or the mouse and then plugging them in once the system has booted (in all combinations possible). I am using a usb mouse/keyboard so I also tried with a PS2 keyboard, no dice. Keyboard works fine in grub so it is not a hardware problem. I have installed a LOT of distros on this box, including various MINTs, all of which have worked perfectly including a working keyboard and mouse. Oh, and the md5sum of the iso is correct.
I had this problem before when trying to boot using unetbootin and it was the reason I switched to multisystem.
