What does this mean?
Mint is not capable of being installed?
The community has no idea of how to 'trouble shoot' this situation (I certainly don't)?
Nobody is reading this section of the forum?
I need to move on from this status - having a dead system is of benefit to nobody. I guess if there is no support here, I'll have to install an alternative distribution.

Please, help us!

Mint 10 will reach end of life in April 2012.
Did you try to boot with the "nomodeset" boot option?
