Okay, but what if I prefer MATE. At least thats what has been recommended to me. This is my first Linux Mint installation.
And I have the most easy install process you can imagine. A recent Asus Eee PC netbook with AMD C-60. I install Linux Mint 15 MATE 64bit version from the external DVD drive. I let the installer delete and use the whole HDD (320GB). The installation finishes. DVD comes out, I hit enter. Nothing happens.
After some minutes, I shut it down manually.
After restart it only says "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot media..." etc. I restart, hit ESC and chose the only option, the iternal HDD. Again same message "Reboot and Select proper Boot device..."
I did the whole installation process 2 times now, same result.
What else can I do?
