Tried to install LMDE_Xfce have no mouse,keyboard, or LAN card. I did it get something going with Mint 10 and the on board video.
Can't even get Clonezilla to work to install my clone, same problem no mouse, keyboard or LAN card.
I upgraded the BIOs to see if that worked, it didn't help.
Only thing I can think of is the new kernel doesn't support the system, and there is no way to change it if I have no keyboard or mouse support and no internet.
It works with Vista, Win7 and XP, I just only have a key for XP, so right now that is what it's running, I'm almost afraid to try Mint 10 with the nvidia 9500 gt video, But would like to have Xfce on it if I could.
