Hello guys and gals,
so I decided to switch from Ubuntu to Mint. I uninstalled Ubuntu through Windows and created a bootable usb flash drive with Mint 14 on it. I tried to install mint and it simply froze every time. After some time it would unfreeze and I could go a step further with the installation but again it froze until a window popped which say that the installed crashed. So I decided to install Ubuntu again using the same usb flash drive I used earlier to install mint.
The problem is this: once in Ubuntu, I thought I would try to install Mint from the same image I used to create the usb in Windows on a virtualbox just to make sure it was not the image's fault or something. And it worked perfectly.
Any ideas what the problem could be? I thought that maybe my flash drive was at fault but it worked perfectly fine when installing Ubuntu.
I would really like to give Mint a chance it looks awesome.
PS: My dvd rom does not work on my laptop so the only option for me to install linux is through a usb drive.
