Who can help me out to complete installing and can boot from my hard disk?

I seriously need advise
Live DVD KDE mint 6 Felicia works all perfect ..
After few runs Live dvd i liked to install. so I did ..
after install it goes to a system check, all OK, it wants to start KDE, but than my screen become into a flash light on/off and on and want to start KDE again, all is blocked
and then stoped continue installing, it only makes my screen flashes and try to start KDE, all repeated into a loop, and can do nothing any-more, i must make my computer powerless to shut-down for restart ..
Now I can only use internet by using a LIVE DVD, but install can't


I did try to install at a other computer as well, same problem,

Seems to me to be a bad DVD
Did you check the md5sum?
Did you burn as slow as possible?
Did you try Compatibility mode?
You find it if you press a key while the live DVD counts down

Would you please tell me when it crashes
It seems to be late in the install process - what's the percentage?
Or maybe not - I don't get it

hi husse

Would you please tell me when it crashes
when percentage almost 50% i think and KDE wants to start >> and one by one you see the 5 symbols in the middle coming up, and than start as a flash light on and off, and all system blocked, it did a bios check like battery check OK, than starts KDE and there we go into the problems
It seems to be late in the install process - what's the percentage?
I have to check it, but maybe you know now where in the proces
Or maybe not - I don't get it
We can try, today i was successfully to installed Kubuntu 9.04 on my HD and boot from there, all works, i get you-tube working, VLC player, Amarok and can play MP3, graphic cards, sound card too, and wauw :D , it see my Samsung CLX-3175FN automatically in the net, + my Wacom Bamboo Fun works to draw with a pen, i love Linux, i'm safe, i can wait until new Linuxmint KDE come out.

I think it is my new Graphic Sapphire HD 4550 card ...maybe?, but stranges, because i did change my card for MSI NX8600GTS to check if it was that problem, that did work in Linux Mint 5 "Elyssa but not in Felicia??

Now to clear any misunderstanding - you have booted into the live desktop and installed?
What you describe is after the install has finished and at the first reboot
Aand X has been changed between Elyssa and Felicia which explains the difference in success (perhaps)

yes correct Husse, I did

that sounds logic to me too, i also saw a flashing screen during Kubuntu 9.04 but it did complete the installation and offered me after reboot from HardDisk to installer the Graphic driver from ATI, after that all was nice and calm, I hope it can be done in the new KDE Linuxmint 7 release!!!
