I hope someone can help me out??
There is a difference between 2 computers, which I'll call "Celeron" and "Pentium":
The Celeron will give a boot progress bar, from boot selection to user log-in; the Pentium does not. The Pentium only shows a flickering monitor -
1. I have downloaded the OS both from the torrent, as well as direct download. Both versions manifest the same phenomenon
2. I have installed both versions on the Pentium, to check. The results are the same: No progress bar during initial boot; No Linux Mint boot logo
I really love Linux Mint Bianca. However I would like to make sure the OS is booting, because right now I only do have a flickering monitor -, besides the flickering computer LED
