Installing Mint on Toshiba laptop

Postby Hardball45 on Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:23 pm

i am attempting to run linuxmint from the DVD to verify that my system will work with Linuxmint. After it loads, I attempt to connect to the wireless and the screenlocks. this has happened with 13(all versions) as well as 12. This is a brand new Toshiba Sattellite Laptop that I purchased from BestBuy. I was able to get it to boot after serching the forums as it uses UEFI and Secure Boot, once those were disabled i was able to boot from the DVD, it loads and when i attempt to do ANYTHING it locks up, the following is the specs for the laptop, AMD Dual-Core E-300 1.3 Ghz, 4GB Memory, AMD Radeon HD 6310, 320GB HDD, Double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW.

I have searched for this information in the forums and failed to find anything that matches what I am attempting to do. I do realize I will probably need to add the UEFI bootloader to dual boot between Win8 and Mint as this laptop also uses UEFI and Secure Boot.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
