Laptop with Windows 7 & Mint 12 installed and every worked fine. Mint 12 installed problem free. Formatted Linux partition, installed Mint 14.1 with Cinnamon. At the Grub screen, if I select Mint 14.1, the screen turns black and nothing happens.
I followed the instructions here:
I added "nomodeset xforcevesa", exactly as the instruction said, pressed Ctrl-X and the screen still turns all black and I don't see any hard disk activity. Linux Mint 14.1 does not boot.
CPU: Intel Sandy Bridge
GPU: Intel HD Graphics + NVidia GeForce (Nvidia Optimus)
I was hoping to at least be able to startup Linux Mint 14.1 with Cinnamon before doing updates and installing Bumblebee 3.0 and installing the NVidia GeForce drivers after that.
How do I resolve the issue of the black screen after I select "Linux Mint 14" in the Grub OS selection screen?
