Cant install Mint 64 edition

Postby -al- on Fri Nov 07, 2008 12:38 pm

I have just upgraded my system to have 8GB of RAM and as such want to make use of it in Linux or at least have it available to use, but I cannot get the Mint64 edition Live CD to boot up so I can install. It will just sit on the loading screen where the bar bounces back and forwards ad infinitum.

I am at a loss to work out what is causing this to happen as my system is very definately 64 bit and Ubuntu Hardy Heron 64 bit edition will load up no problem.

Any clues people?

Alan.

lshw gives a bit too much info - lspci (perhaps + lsusb) is handier
MCP65 is pretty much standard
Like you I have a nvidia motherboard and a Radeon HD 3850 and have no problems
I think it's slightly older and is using CK804 not MCP65 as your mobo
Have you tried Compatibility mode?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
