First install was Linux Mint Maya Mate. When the software manager failed to load, I upgraded to Linux Mint Cinnamon. When I boot into Cinnamon, I have no problems with the software manager loading. However, since then, I have not been able to boot a new install(Ubuntu, Windows) from a dvd.
Is my problem with conflicting Mint versions, or something else? And if so, how do I remove Maya?
I'm using a 64 bit Lenovo laptop, purchased new last fall.
