Mint install error (ATI issue) solved

Postby enchance on Mon Nov 19, 2007 3:52 am

I tried doing a fresh install of mint on my ATI laptop. I edited the boot options "quiet splash --" with "nosplash nolapic noacpi --" as in the post: A lot of text comes out but suddenly stops once it gets here:
Code: Select all
[    72.540000] Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
[  132.540000] hdd: lost interrupt
[  232.540000] hdd: lost interrupt
... # same error as above

and it goes on and on. I tried running the LiveCD again but this time without editing anything and it ran fine so it must mean the problem was with the "nosplash nolapic noacpi --". I'm no Linux guru so I don't know what to do next.

I want to use Mint!! My Gutsy ran fine with all bells and whistles...but I can't even install mint?! HELP!!!!
