I want to clarify I've no experience in computing or coding, I'm intending to get some using Linux.
Trying to install Linux Mint 14 64-bit so I can dual boot between it and Windows 8.
I'm trying to install it from a USB (SanDisk 16GB)
I can get to the grub? sorry, not entirely sure but it's a black screen with white writing and options to install linux, install linux compatibility etc
I click to install and it cuts to a black screen.
I can reset my laptop using Ctrl+Alt+Del so it's not frozen, there's just no screen.
I've searched about and the suggestions are to edit the code or something.
I've tried a bunch after the splash -- part, stuff like radeon.nomodeset=0 and a ton of others with no luck.
Any suggestions appreciated!
Sorry for the retarded way this was written or if this is in the wrong place :/
*I've got a Samsung AMD A8 APU with Radeon HD
uh, feel free to ask for details about the laptop or whatever you need
