Seriously? None of you guys is going to help him?
Look, I know he didn't approach the right way (sorry, eatrhshaker, you didn't) and he was fairly unspecific, but the guy has problems and needs some help; none of you have offered to help, all you did was complain about his unclearity and mock his words. Seriously, what is wrong with you people?
OK, you can stop reading now, I just wanted to give you that little nag
Now, earthshaker, I believe that what is happening to you is that you don't even get to the tty's and only get basic comands (it is OK if you don't know what it means, you don't have to); that usually happens when you have a faulty ISO or burned your disk wrongly. So, with the posibility in mind that your ISO is wrong, I would suggest downloading it again and check it with an md5sum hash (you can find some info about what it is and how to do it here
) and then try to burn the disk again. If you just do that I can assure you that it will work (that unless you have some faulty hardware piece, which is not that much likely) and you will have a functioning Live (CD? DVD? USB?) Mint running up and ready to install.
Please, don't hessitate to post here if you have any problems; I would be very happy to help you with whatever it is.
Cheer up! Things are getting worse at a slower rate.
