can`t boot linux mint on acer aspire

Postby ilanesh on Mon Dec 31, 2007 11:31 am

I give up, can`t boot any linux mint live cd from my acer aspire 5610,
but all ubuntus, kubuntus xubuntus bot up without any problem and install and run.
why not mint?
I tried mint daryna gnome and also mint daryna kde, always the same problems, will not boot, it starts and then it hangs.
I tried it on a nother notebook, there it boots up, but this is my windows notebook, and the acer aspire is for my linux distros.
All the other linux distros also boot up and run ok, like pclinuxos, mandriva, opensuse, kubuntu, ubuntu, xubuntu, pcbsd, why not mint?
It drives me crazy, what is wrong with mint? Help!!!

my Compaq Evo (a desktop) won't run Mint either (live CD and install go fine) after Mint install the loading Grub message is displayed then the system hangs (no more keyboard LEDs, nothing) - so I tried Debian (Etch) exact same thing ! - then installed Debian in "expert" mode & said use LILO not GRUB and all was well - Ubuntu (GRUB) works fine, is there a way to have Mint use LILO OR write (GRUB) to the MBR AND the 1st partition :?:
