thinkpad x200 windows 7 build 7100 problem installing mint7

Postby techshots on Sun Sep 06, 2009 3:01 am

Hi,

I've tried the following:

1- Used Unetbootin to create bootable mint7 on my USB 2gb mem stick
2- Rebooted and got the install menu screen
3- Tried to select any of the options but doesn't seem to do anything

Do I have to format my disk first?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

the install menu screen

And this is? Where you can select install options like Compatibility mode?
If nothing happens I'm afraid the live USB is bad
Did you check the md5sum? In Windows you need a third party program to check or is that built in to Unetbootin?
There is also an issue with the bootloader in Win7, but I don't think that should cause a problem
