I have installed Linux Mint 13 on a new Novatech nSpire laptop, and have a problem with booting.
This is what happens:
Power on - nothing happens, just a blank but lit, screen. I have waited for up to 10 mins.
Power off - wait 2 minutes and power on.
I then get 3 GRUB options:
1) Linux Mint 3.2.0-32
2) Linux Mint 3.2.0-32 (recovery mode)
3) Mem test
If I choose Option 1, boot hangs at "wlan0 - no IPv6 router present" or "eth0 - no IPv6 router present" if connection is wired.
Wait for 5 minutes, cursor is flashing, but no activity on the HDD indicator.
Power off, wait 2 minutes and power on.
Select Option 2, and in the dialogue that eventually appears, select "resume normal boot", and laptop boots OK.
Is this a GRUB problem, a router problem, or something else, and what can I do about it?
