installed the Celena Mint on my laptop, it went on easily - no problem at all, but when I tried the same disc on my desktop it didn't like it. I have since tried Daryna and Ubuntu on the same PC and both experienced problems.
I get so far and hit a problem, sort that problem and am faced with a different one.
I put PCLinuxOS 2007 on successfully
and then tried again to put Mint on (using a different option on the f6) but it hit the same error. When I tried UBuntu (like a berk) I made a user error and blew up my Windows and PCLinux installations.
I am not experienced at GRUB and was unable to recover them. I reinstalled windows but am still looking for things to try to enable me to have Mint installed.
Further digging on forums and webpages makes me wonder if it is the motherboard - so I will be trying a known good motherboard this weekend.
To recap - I have not as yet installed Mint on my desktop,though each time I am sure this new solution will enable me to do so.
Wanders off singing, "One day my Mint will come."
