First time poster long time user.
I'm having problems with Mint 14, Mint 13 works fine.
I try booting from the Mint 14 Mate 64 CD and am greeted with the logon window, it tries to automatically login as Mint which throws up a black screen then back to the logon screen.
I tried manually entering mint with no password, does the same thing.
Other things I've tried:
Creating a boot USB, same problem
Redownloading the image, 14 and 14.1 both do the same thing
Boot in compatibility mode, no luck
I then went back to my linux mint 13 64 mate image, booted fine, installed fine.
My setup is:
Asrock Extreme4 Gen3
Its got me stumped because I've never had this problem in the past with earlier versions.
Just for a test I tried Ubuntu 12.10 and that boots fine.
