I am trying to install Mint 5.0 R1 Gnome on my computer from the live CD but its not working. When the CD is put in the drive I get the Mint screen and have a choice between Normal Mode, Safe Compatibility Mode, Memory test and Boot From Hard Drive. I have tried normal mode and Safe mode. Every time I try, the livecd just drops me to Busy box with a (initramfs) prompt. I have tried adding acpi=off and all_general_ide to the kernel options with no luck. Please help me out! I desperately need to get Mint Installed on this system and am under a deadline. Any help is greatly needed and appreciated.
