Re: Dual boot won't boot into linux mint

Re: Dual boot won't boot into linux mint

Still no luck. It still gives me the busybox error after waiting for the device. I'm unable to type into the shell that it provides though. Is that a hardware problem? I tried out two different keyboards and I was still unable to type in "exit".
