Not sure if this is the wrong place for this question so please forgive me if it is.
My Fujitsu Esprimo E5730 works fine with all versions of Mint up to 14. I have installed 11 in the past and have been running 12 for over a year and recently installed 13 but 14 refuses to install. I have tried Cincamon 32 & 64 bit and Mate 32 & 64 bit to no avail.
The 64 bit builds will boot the DVD but freeze soon after the desktop appears. I'm not too bothered about that as I have never been able to run 64 bit distros on this PC and put it down to the PC not being fully 64 bit complient.
The 32 bit builds will boot to desktop and I can run applications including GParted which allows me to make changes to the drives but when I try to install it will freeze at the same place every time.
I start the install, select the hard drive and it gets to the point where it is copying files then freezes when the progress bar reaches the "S" of "copying files".
I have tried a different HDD, Compatibility Mode, and even tried Ubuntu 12.10 which froze in more or less the same place so I am thinking this is an Ubuntu or Kernal issue, carrying over into Mint. In the past I have had issues with various Distros on other PC's and laptops and it is not unusual for a Distro to work fine for one version but not on a newer version however usually the live CD will fail to boot. Booting the live CD but failing to install is a new one on me.
Any suggestions greatfully accepted
