Hello from a newbie
I downloaded Mint 7 Gloria, did MD5 check, burned slow and cannot run it on my desktop PC.
Disk works fine in my Acer laptop.
Regardless of what choice I make in the Welcome to Linux Mint Gloria 7 screen (start linux mint, start LM compatability mode, start installer, check integrity of CD, or memory test) I end up with the following error message:
Starting in compatability mode gets me "further" into the process but all roads lead to the above message.
The computer is homebuilt around a Gigabyte AMD board, Athlon 64X2 processor, 4 megs DDR2 ram, 3 SATA drives, 2 Samsung optical drives, Nvidia GeForce 7900 S graphics card. It is 2 1/2 years old and very stable.
Even though I am a relative Linux newbie I have installed and run Ubuntu Hardy Heron and the latest PCLinuxOS version on this computer without any problem.....But I REALLY want to try Mint. It looks awesome on my laptop and runs with full function right off the bat.
Please let me know what further information I can furnish to help with a diagnosis.
I am currently downloading Mint 6 on my laptop and am going to try running that on my desktop.
Thanks in advance for any help.
