i started envy and selected to install the ati driver...nothing happened.
so i choosed manually install the 8 .04 ati driver..envy did his thing and i was asked to restart the machine...i did
i logged in and in a small winwos i was asked to configure the graphic card and the monitor so i choosed ati card and samsung 226bw and still nothing
when i want to start the catalyst control center it gives me an error something like ati driver is not properly installed or ati card not found...
this is my first time when i install mint so i'm noob as i can be..

In virtual box you have a virtual graphics card so no drivers are needed or possible to install
This is one of the major differences to a normal install

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
