I've installed Mint 5.0 R1 on my standard IDE ATA drive, and I'm having problems getting it to boot properly, it will get to the loading screen, and the bar will move back and forth for about 3 or 4 minutes and then it sends me to a screen that says
Busybox1.3.3 <--- blah blah blah
(initramfs) "Please type "help" for a list of commands"
and then I can enter commands, its like x server isn't on, but I haven't even been asked to login or anything, so I don't know =/
I do get errors running the live disk, like I can't partition in EXT3 and It took me like 3 times to get ext2 to work with mint, this isn't my hardware because I was running 4 fine and Mandriva PWP 2008 perfectly so I dunno, I love mint and just want to get this working.
any advice is very much appreciated =)
