Failed to Boot and/or Install?

Postby LesterPalooza on Thu Apr 23, 2009 11:14 am

My Setup:

AMD Athlon Dual-Core 64-bit
NVidia GeForce 8200M G
Atheros Wireless
1.9Ghz
250 GB HD

Problem:

I am installing LinuxMint-6 64-bit edition using the LinuxMint-6-x64.iso. I am using the correct installer of LinuxMint for my 64-bit processor right?

I insert the CD installer.
Rebooted.
PC starts up and LinuxMint menu comes up
I select "Start Linux Mint"
Progress bar shows, loading LinuxMint, and just crashes after 2.5 bars.

Is there a solution to this problem? The CD hashes were correct before I burnt the CD and did a memory check and CD check, and they were fine.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think this has to do with your processor... I had a similar problem with another Athlon 64bit Dual Core machine and Debian. I solved it by adding some extra kernel options at boot.

When the Live CD boots, press TAB to show the boot options. Then press TAB again to get the kernel options to appear below, then add these 2 options.

Code: Select all
noapic nolapic


And then hit enter.

Hope this works.

Do you get an error message of any kind, or does it just reboot on you?

I tried that.

noapic nolapic


I ended with initframs or something... black screen with options and commands on the screen.
