Re: What the ????? on installation

Maybe not entirely relevant to Linux Mint but I'll write this anyway as it allowed me to install a Linux OS.

Whilst in Windows I put my Ubuntu DVD in the DVD drive. When it autoran I noticed an option to "Load Ubuntu in Windows". I used this particular option and it installed wonderfully - certainly no ??? ??? text boxes which occurred when I tried to install from within a DVD LinuxMint/Ubuntu boot system. I now have a dual boot system and I am happily going to familiarise myself with Linux.

I don't think such an option existed on the LinuxMint DVD (could be wrong) but I'm happy enough.


Thanks again for everyone's ideas.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You found Wubi
Mint does not have it - too complicated and too much work for our small crew...

This might be a problem with migration-assistant the next step.
Run in Terminal:
Code: Select all
ubiquity --desktop --no-migration-assistant %k gtk_ui

If that doesn't work try running this:
Code: Select all
ubiquity --desktop --debug %k gtk_ui

Then look at these files to find out what's crashing the Installer.
