Netbook installation issue - Failed to start X server

Postby Thrasonic on Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:32 am

Hi all. I'm trying to install Mint 14 on a netbook and every time I boot to the DVD I get the message "Failed to start the X server. It is likely that it's not setup correctly." I choose No because I don't want to look at the log or diagnostic info and the next screen says that the X server is now disabled. The problem is I have no idea how to troubleshoot this. Any thoughts or am I just out of luck with Mint 14? Perhaps I should try 13 and see if I get the same issue?
