I have the issue where the Mint 14 live CD worked, install went OK but then on booting to HDD there was no grub menu and just a black screen and blinking cursor. Convinced it would be a graphics card thing I played around with editing grub with replacement to "no splash" but no joy.
Then I found an old post about mint 11 (I am trying to install mint 14) and xenopeek suggested boot-repair.
Original Post was
And the solution that worked for me and got me into Mint 14 was to boot to a live CD, the run
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
I just accepted the defaults when running the utility, it seemed to know exactly where my HDD was and fixed the grub on that /dev/sda.
I'm so happy
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates

I won't say this is the best way, but it worked for me :-
I REMOVED my NVIDIA graphics card, plugged my monitor into the MotherBoard.
I then loaded Linux Mint 15, AND THEN I got the NVIDIA drivers thus ..... thanks to nice people on the CHAT room:-
Then open a TERMINAL (that little black window we all love) and key this in:-
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings && sudo nvidia-xconfig
This will take a few moments to run, then SHUT DOWN, re-install the NVIDIA card, plug the monitor back into it, and re-boot.
