If any of the lines is incorrect, it seems the error is here.it says that the /boot/grub/device.map file is empty. check if the file is empty by: sudo mount /dev/sda /mnt cd /mnt cat /boot/grub/device.map...

mint@mint ~ $ md5sum image_file md5sum: image_file: No such file or directory sorry i didn't clarify this.you substitute the image_file with the path to your image file that you burned to the cd,like,/media/my disk/mint8.iso. here'a a link that might help: http://absolutebeginner.wordpress.com/2006...

Re: Issues With Bootup After Installing Mint 8

verify the integrity of the cd by md5sum image_file and that the result is 06fc2f27f8352a2bac5516b86c020755.if it doesn't match,sownload the image from another server and try again. then tell us more about your hardware and give us the output of lspci command. run these commands from the liveCD.sinc...

Re: Helana Cancled half way through Installation
