i am attempting to run linuxmint from the DVD to verify that my system will work with Linuxmint. After it loads, I attempt to connect to the wireless and the screenlocks. this has happened with 13(all versions) as well as 12. This is a brand new Toshiba Sattellite Laptop that I purchased from BestBuy. I was able to get it to boot after serching the forums as it uses UEFI and Secure Boot, once those were disabled i was able to boot from the DVD, it loads and when i attempt to do ANYTHING it locks up, the following is the specs for the laptop, AMD Dual-Core E-300 1.3 Ghz, 4GB Memory, AMD Radeon HD 6310, 320GB HDD, Double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW.
I have searched for this information in the forums and failed to find anything that matches what I am attempting to do. I do realize I will probably need to add the UEFI bootloader to dual boot between Win8 and Mint as this laptop also uses UEFI and Secure Boot.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
