I am trying to boot a LiveDVD Mint 8 on a machine that has Ubuntu 9.10 installed on it, but an having no success. The LiveDVD is good because it loads on my laptop with no problems. The machine I'm trying to load on is an old IBM Netvista with 2g memory and a Nvida GF 7300 video card. I should also mention that this machine had Windows XP on it then I dual-booted Ubuntu on it. I liked Linux so much that I then dedicated the machine to Ubuntu. I mention all this because I think my problem is a video problem because I think Mint completes booting-up, but the display is black. Here's what happens when I try to boot the LiveDVD.
1. I get the Auto Boot in second.... screen
2. Then I get two lines of info about Casper loading followed by Ready
3. Then I see the LM splash screen for about 1 minute and the DVD is doing lots of seeking
4. The screen goes black and the DVD continues seeking for about another minute
That's all I ever get. I need your help - carl
