Toshiba L855d cannot boot

Postby mxdg406 on Thu Dec 06, 2012 10:15 pm

Hello Everyone,
I have a Toshiba L855d-s5242(Trinity A8, 6GB Ram, 7640G) and for the life of me can't figure out why I cannot get a Linux distro to install easily on this laptop. I have a fair amount of experience with Linux although this is my first real experience with Linux Mint.(running on desktop) I have tried using nomodeset and acpi=off with no success. I have gotten a working install of Ubuntu 12.04 on the laptop although it was quite quirky but this was back in September. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I love Mint on my desktop and would love to be able to have it on my laptop as well. Also I am running the Cinnamon version of Mint 14.
Thank You,

P.S. I never actually stated the issue, sorry. It loads the bootloader and then when i choose the install mint option it will start to load and then hang up eventually. Compatibility mode does the same thing. Thanks again.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
