Booting from Live USB hangs for Linux Mint 14

Postby RaviSurana on Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:15 am

hi, I am a newbie but I have used Linux Mint a little( for about a month or so).
I tried to boot Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon(64 bit) using Live USB on my Hp laptop with 640 gb hdd preloaded with windows 7. The system fulfilled all the requirements for the installation of Linux Mint 14.
I chose "start in compatibility mode" from the start-up screen. The booting started and got stuck up after some time at the stage shown in the picture

Last few lines were
* Starting CUPS printing spooler/server
* Starting Samba Auto-reload Integration
* Stopping Samba Auto-reload Integration
* Starting SMB/CIFS File Server

The USB works fine on other laptops.
I have used Linux Mint 13 previously installed inside windows which was installed with great difficulty and crashed after an update(that is what i noticed). My laptop generally has a problem running Linux based-OS.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well, I can't find anything relevant for the g6-1201tx or the g6-1200 series in general. Also linlap doesn't have anything for this model: http://www.linlap.com/hewlett-packard.

I decided to install Linux Mint 13 from live USB yesterday and it worked perfectly. However problem remains the same for Linux Mint 14 and it can't be installed :(
