The liveCD records a "segmentation error" at the address 0x149 and so is unable to boot up... thanks to you guys and google I was able to find the cause: an ATI Radeon 7000 video card which I successfully installed on the "xp side" of that pc.
Assuming that I don't want to change or remove the card (even because it wasn't my choice to install it)... how can I possibly get to boot the live and install Mint 13? Thanks to everyone who will help me ^^

That is, when you get to GRUB, press Tab and type nomodeset at the end of the line starting [i]linux[./i]

I used testdisk to rewrite windows mbr on C and D
before formatting but some files kept stuck on my C drive which was also mounted in linux, one in particular (the .local/shared/cvgfbs (or something like this)
This means your messing around with formatting damaged the Windows boot loader. You will have to restore that from a Windows CD before it will boot again.and this seems to cause a "NTLDR is missing" error on the pc when I try to restart,
sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
