Mint 13 installation stops after the second screen [SOLVED]

Postby Ocean on Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:31 pm

Attention I used an automatic translator. :oops:

I have tried installing from burned DVD before Linux Mint 13 Maya LTS Cinnamon, then Mate, but always with the same result.

At the second screen of the installation where he explains how much disk space I need together the internet connection , after having clicked on "continue" everything stops, with the graphical interface replaced by something gray and irregular horizontal lines, or the following screen appears:

Image

I can't really install Linux?

P.S. DVD in Live worked fine

Thank you, Ciao.

Who wants me to answer please use simple words for translation. :)

I had the same problem with LM13 on my laptop (see my signature), I tried Linux Mint 14 and works fine.

Try Linux Mint 14 (mate or cinnamon).

Whats your mother language?

Don't forget to check md5sum of downloaded iso image

I am Italian, from Milan.

Thanks, you give me some hope because I would just install Cinnamon as first choice or Mate on my laptop.

I try with Mint Cinnamon 14 :D , but before I was just trying to inform me, and I read on a site that happened to me with the screen posted above could be caused by the fact that I had previously prepared 3 partitions for Linux already formatted in ext4 on my HD, is plausible?

Everything went well with Mint 14 Cinnamon, thanks.

Just a strange thing at the end of the installation procedure, after displaying a special graphic effect tells me that "the installer crashed" :shock: but I believe that installation was already over, in fact after restarting are here on Linux 14 and for now it seems everything OK.

Perhaps she meant that crashed the spectacular visualization, and this I can understand seeing as my laptop is not young.

Not true.

LM 13 is more stable than LM14; Cinnamon is still under development.

OK, one last thing I want to know: I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 14 alongside Win XP and it is ok, but what do the last two lines of the Grub?

Why refer to Linux Mint 13?

Code: Select all
sudo update-grub

Se le voci rimangono allora forse Mint 13 è ancora installato.

But I never installed Mint 13, as I said in the first post the various attempts stopped the second installation screen :shock:

It is possible this thing?

I will try the code.

Excellent Italian, you can be your mother tongue :mrgreen:

In your first post you said that you tried to install LM13, so are these entries.

If you want, you can customize your grub.

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Maybe I understand the fact that Linux 13 is present in Grub.

In a couple of failed attempts at installing Linux 13 has not appeared the bug screen, but the screen has become foggy ... ... ... ... ... ... I tried to click too is the install DVD has started to turn for a while, until I had to turn off the laptop.

Pretty much I think he installed something on a disk partition that I had not yet allocated, in fact I realized in Win XP that the unallocated partition became logic :shock:

So I guess there will be no problems, when with GParted I will delete and reallocate that partition.

With Grub Customizer you can use any image file format and weight?

I tried it with a jpg of 326KB with 16 million colors to 24 bit and Grub Customizer in the preview shows the image, but in reality it doesn't work, where I'm wrong?

Likely to know what image takes Grub you should know my notebook information in VGA mode, such as resolution and color depth are possible.

It is possible to obtain this data in any way?
