I downloaded and installed Mint 14 Cinnamon 32bit. I loved it! I made the stupid mistake tho that I downloaded it as a 32bit instead of 64bit since I have a 64bit processor. Cinnamon graphics freezes my computer from time to time, so I wanted to upgrade to a 64bit MATE edition. My problem is I can't even boot the installer from a USB. I've tried to different types of flashdrives, so the flashdrives aint the problem. I've tried different linux distros like Ubuntu, and thats not the problem either. I even used the software already installed on Mint to make a bootable drive. That didnt work either. I changed the booting sequence and put the USB as #1 in the BIOS config. That didnt work either -____- Everytime I try to boot it up from a flashdrive, it takes me to a black screen with a white underscore just flashing. I left my computer on once to see if it would load. After a while, it was still on there. I was thinking of wiping the HDD but I dont want to reinstall the drivers to config them at 64bit. So... any help?
AND yes, I have searched the forums for help but I can't find anything to my scenario.
