I burned Linux Mint (12 Lisa 64 bit) to a cd (bootable) and launched installation. I first tried to install within Windows (7 Home Premium) and rebooted upon prompt. When I tried to boot, it gave me the option to boot with Windows 7 or Linux Mint. Selected Linux, it gave me a 5 sec count down for boot options, I let it expire so the installation would continue as is, the screen went black, then the display turned off altogether. I got the same result when I tried installing the demo and full installation. I also tried to continue the installation by selecting boot in 'graphics safe mode' with the exact same result. Could it be my graphics card? I have an AMD Radeon(TM) HD6480G. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!! I wanna break free of Windows.... Thanks in advance!!
**I've also tried installing the latest version Ubuntu and am getting the exact same result >_<
***Add Fedora 16 to that list. I get the message 'Gnome 3 failed to load and is in fallback mode'. I got the latest video card drivers and tried again but to no avail...
****Linux Arch is also on the list..... FML!!!
