Have you partitioned?
If my memory serves me right this is after partitioning
Can you tell us what the installer is doing at that stage?
There should be at least some clue, like copying files ...
No, I made no effort to do any partitioning beforehand and wasn't presented with an opportunity to partition during the failed install either. I booted the machine from the Mint CD and selected to option to install. There was general progress meter that got to 46% and then stalled. I waited several hours to see if it would continue on (this machine is about 8 years old after all), but no success. I suspect the machine just doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Mint. I'd like to include what the installer was doing, but I can't even get the machine to boot to the menu from the CD anymore. If i make any more progress, I'll post further. If anyone has an opinion about minimum system requirements for Mint 5, I'd love to hear it.
