Mint 14 not seeing USB

Postby Ned » Sun Feb 10, 2013 5:10 am

Have just downloaded Mint 14 (32 bit Cinnamon) and installed it from the DVD OK onto my Win XP laptop and everything just works.
However, when doing the same instal on my Win XP desktop it installs but on re-boot does not see the USB - so no mouse or keyboard to pick which OS to boot to.
It then just coundowns to Win XP and loads that.
