Instead of adding to someone's thread, thought might be better to start my own with all my specs.
Trying to install mint on my EEE pc 901. Intel Atom N270, 1.6ghz proc I think. 1gb ram.
Using a Verbatim usb stick to put the live cd on. The live session works fine. I've used it with this usb drive in standard form, LXDE, and fluxbox. They all work more or less perfectly. When I go to install, I can get through steps 1-2 just fine. On the keyboard choice screen, I press forward as usual and then the install hangs with the spinning wheel thing. Happens when I try to install any of the 3 versions. I've tried with my ssd's mounted and formatted the regular way after using eeebuntu 3.0. I've tried it unmounted. I've tried formatting and then installing with ssd's mounted/unmounted. So far it always hangs. I created the stick using unetbootin on my desktop ubuntu 9.10.
Any ideas what I can do to fix this?
The stick can handle installers, I've put eeebuntu back on my eee using the same process, just different iso.
