I have a MintBox 2 with no issues with Mint 15 or Mint 16. The 201403 LMDE operates without issues in live mode. I have not been able to sort out the procedure for the placement of GRUB. The default BIOS has UEFI disabled and Legacy enabled. With this BIOS setting, upon booting following an install, I receive a message indicating the the HD can not be read (check the cables type message). I have tried writing GRUB to /dev/sda and then /dev/sda1 (root) in a different fresh install. I also tried UEFI enabled with a fresh install with GRUB placed on sda or sda1, but only obtained a boot menu asking what device to use for the boot loader, and when told, simply returning to the boot menu. So, until I sort out the GRUB issue with LMDE on a MintBox 2, I am using Mint 16. I also have used LMDE with great success on other boxes, and wish to get it up and running on the MintBox 2. So, you may run into GRUB placement issues, or someone with the solution may appear and tell us the way to sort this out. I am happily Mintizing XP machines of friends who are moving away from XP and do not wish to purchase new machines. Kudos to Clem and crew for providing alternatives at this time.
