I decided to give the 64bit Distro a whirl and my ISO burned no issues, but when I boot off CD LinuxMint just loads into Terminal and I am unsure how to get it to install from there. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
Am I looking in the wrong place for the MD5? I loaded the laptop in question into windows and was able to run the lmmenu.exe app and tell the machine to reboot for Demo and Install, but it also just loads to terminal. The text moves too fast for me to catch any errors.
Do you have any installed Linux? In Linux (rather bash) you always have access to the md5sum creation in terminal In Windows you have to install a third party program to calculate the md5sum and it is the sum of the entire ISO that is to be calculated
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
