This is the first time I am trying to install Linux.
I installed Ubuntu a couple of times some years ago, and Debian without graphic interface.
I also installed a lot of Windows versions.
I burned the LiveCD of Linux Mint 14 (Nadia) 32bits, and computer booted him fine.
I had some graphical glitches with the normal boot, so I tried the Compatibility mode, and everything worked fine there.
Live desktop is running normal, Internet is working, so I started the install.
Got through every option, made a new partition on ext4, mount on /, and even created a swap partition manually, since I read it is needed to hibernate.
After I go through every option, when I get to the "Welcome to Linux Mint" (see picture), the windows disappears after a couple of seconds, and the install just stops. I tried to wait for more than an hour and nothing happened...
Only the Welcome window disappears, and the install stops at that moment, as in:
- If I get through every option quickly, the install stops around the 15 20% mark, and when I check the partition after, it got like 870MB used.
- If I wait in the last option (Import Windows 7 account) before the "Welcome" window, it will reach the end of the Copying files task, the bar will be full, and it waits for me to input the option. When I do it, it disappears. The partition will end up with around 4GB.
I never get a windows asking for account/password, neither saying the installation is complete. Clearly it is installing fine, but when it gets to that point, just stops.
I tried it a lot of times with different DVD Drives, and I also waited a long time for something to happen without success.
AMD Thunderbird 1.4GHz
512MB DDR RAM
Geforce 5200 128MB
120GB Hard Drive (15GB partition for the install)
If you have any idea for me to try out, I'm all hears and I appreciate any kind of help!
Thank you very much =)
