OK. I'll try again.
I am trying to upgrade a Mint 10 to Mint 14. The CD/DVD disc spins with a black screen, disc stops but nothing happens. Two discs tried 32 and 64 bits. I then tried with unetbootin with both 32 and 64 bits. Again at the end of what I assume is the load just a black screen.
I have even tried a different distro, still no luck.
I would like to see the live CD load so I can check all functions.
I have reset the bios in all cases, have downloaded new ISOs and checksum all. The machine boots into Mint 10 which I installed some time ago.
