I want Mint 14 Cinnamon 64 bit on a USB that I can boot into and install if I want.Problem:
Glitchy screen, I don't know.
First I downloaded Mint 14 Cinnamon 32 bit to try this out on an older desktop. I downloaded the .iso and created a bootable USB with LinuxLiveUSB. It worked no problem.
I actually want this on a laptop so I then formatted the USB and installed the 64 bit version on it, again with LinuxLiveUSB. When I tried to boot the laptop from that nothing happened. I disabled secure boot in the UEFI and tried again. This time it started but the bar along the bottom of the screen (menu, volume, time, et cetera) was all blurry and the screen would glitch whenever I moved the pointer. It wasn't so bad as to be unusable, but it was still very annoying and very hard to use. I opened some programs (Firefox, LibreOffice) and they worked just fine without any glitchiness. I shut it down and went back to windows to format the USB again and try it with the 64 bit MATE .iso. I used LinuxLiveUSB again and booted from that. The bar along the bottom showed up fine, but the screen was still all glitchy. Thinking it may be because of a problem with LinuxLiveUSB, I downloaded unetbootin and went to try it with that. The USB drive wasn't listed and I eventually found out that LinuxLiveUSB had marked the drive as nonremovable so it didn't show up. I used bootit to flip the removable bit and it worked. Now that unetbootin worked, I made another 64 bit Cinnamon Bootable USB (same .iso file). When I booted from that I had the same problems as before. I have no idea what to do now.
I have the .iso files for Cinnamon 32 bit and 64 bit downloaded, along with the .iso for 64 bit MATE, bootit, unetbootin, and LinuxLiveUSB. I downloaded all the .iso files from http://linuxfreedom.com/linuxmint/linuxmint.com/stable/14/download.html
Could that be the problem? Bad .iso files? I don't want to go downloading more .iso files unless I know that's the problem because it takes nearly 4 hours to download an .iso file. Also, I used http to download them and not the ftp option. I don't know what either is so I didn't know which to pick. I'm new to all of this, so try to keep answers simple please.
