Is there other way to install mint???

Postby otozymba » Mon Jun 23, 2008 11:35 am

hi, this is my first time here. i've just downloaded and burnt Linux Mint Elyssa 5. After i boot somehow i can't get past the login, so i can't boot into live cd. i want to install Linux Mint so is there any other way to install it other than booting from live cd?

On ubuntu, on the boot menu, it has 'intall ubuntu' option which makes you install ubuntu on your computer without going into live cd.

Any help? :( :(

Your graphics card/ monitor isn't being detected correctly. You might try booting in compatibility mode, but try putting

Code: Select all

xforcevesa
in the boot options before hitting enter.
