My booting problem

Postby redneo on Mon Dec 19, 2011 11:54 pm

I was installing LMDE on my desktop using a usb flashdrive and after finshing it I rebooted and got this.

PXE_M0F: exiting intel boot agent.
No bootable device insert bootdisk

Now I used the same flashdrive with LMDE on it and installed both my laptop and netbook. I have tried other
programs like the live usb creator to put lmde on it and got the same thing. Tried a disc install samething
but I can install Lisa no problem or other os with no problems any Ideas.

Anything special about this box? For example:
- multiple disk drives?
- multiple OSes installed?
- multiple existing partitions?
- RAID?

OK, any chance that the boot order in the BIOS is picking the storage drive to boot from instead of the OS drive?

I guess 2 possibillities.. It has new BIOS i.e. EFI boot or you installed GRUB into USB itself.

Boot from Live USB and use option 'boot from hard disk' in the Liveusb menu..

You can follow this

or if that seems too scary, just reinstall from the DVD.

I looked at the ubuntu guide looks like a piece of cake how much of a different is this on mint? Do I add apt-get or anything else or is it the same and should I use lmde or Lisa
