So yah ok, I just burned linuxmint to a 4.8 gig cd (or is it dvd) and deleted my other linux partitions, I dual-boot so this didnt seem so crazy and since I've crashed my computer before recovery is more than easy to do.
So my problem is that when I pop in the debian cd and go ahead it takes me to a log in screen which since it is freshly burned I dont have a password to. Now, since I cant access the grub os screen. Since when I tried this before with cinnamon it was an improper install I'm inclined to believe it is a problem with my burner. Please help!
