I'm trying to install Mint 16 MATE edition on an Asus X102BA laptop. This has AMD Radeon 8180G graphics, which appear to be causing a problem here.
The installer starts to boot correctly from a USB stick, but crashes when starting X.
I get a message "Failed to start the X server". I've tried booting the installer into compatability mode but that has the same problem.

Any suggestions appreciated.
