The 32bit CD version doens't have mate so in that version I found no problem so far and in only requires 3.5GB instead of 5.6GB of disk space to install.
Edit 1: on the 32bit CD mint4win worked but the "Add Multimedia Codecs" and "Upgrade to the DVD Edition" options didn't as I click and nothing happens. Going to check that again.

Same here. I'm also using 32bit CD.
After a while suddenly the DVD upgrade worked, but the Add Multimedia Codecs seems to do nothing.
I also get corrupt fonts in the gnome shell, with text showing in a garbled form.
I installed the 172 nvidia drivers and now gnome3 shell fails to load but the gnome classic works.
I think installing the mint-meta-codecs package will install the missing codecs and installing mint-meta-gnome-dvd will install the dvd package.
Also, a tip for launching programs if your menu isn't there is, switch to a text console (ctrl+alt+f1) and logon there, and type:
- Code: Select all
DISPLAY=:0 gnome-terminal &
then switch back ctrl+alt+f7
then you should see a gnome terminal from which you can run other commands, maybe gnome-panel or gnome-shell or jockey-gtk (to de-install nvidia) or something like that
