I'm trying to install Mint 15 on my new laptop, but I'm running into some trouble. I'm trying to install it on my new ultrabook which doesn't have a disk drive so I made a bootable USB drive using the Universal USB Installer. It seemed to install on the drive correctly because when I plug it into my laptop it does boot up into grub. When I try to boot into Mint, though, I simply get a completely black screen: no prompt, no text, nothing. I've tried the various methods I've found through the sticky up at the top of the forum and through Googling, wiping and reinstalling the USB drive, appending "nomodeset xforcevesa", "nomodeset", or "nva.modeset=1" to the end of the "quiet splash" line on the grub options, but still no luck. It does look like my back light is on, I just have a blank screen. I've also disabled "Secure Boot" in my BIOS.
Laptop: Asus UX51Vz-XH71
- Intel Core i7-3612QM 2.1GHz
- 8GB DDR3
- 2 X 256 GB SSD drives in RAID 0
- NVIDIA GeForce GT650M
I'm honestly not 100% sure what to do now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I've also tried Mint 13 and 14 with the same results.
