Install Mint on Pendrive - Stalling!

Postby estepan99 » Mon Jun 23, 2008 1:02 pm


I am new to this forum and relatively new to linux in general! For I have heard, that Mint is far better than Ubuntu, I thought Id give it a try and began installing it on a pendrive as learned in
I copied the 4.0 image to the pendrive and started fixmint.bat.
Start was fine but after a while it stopped working (at least to my eyes) so after waiting for half an hour or so, I decided to close the terminalwindow and with it the installation-process.

So my questions: Could it be that I was too impatient; means: for how long does phase one last normally
two: what could be the problem of the stalling!

Tried with Dell Latidude D600, WinXP, 2Gig-USB-Stick (Hama)!

Thanks in advance for trying to help me,

Hi and thanx for trying to help me!

After posting I found out that apparantly my laptop is too old to start from a pendrive. So installing linux to pendrive is obsolete for me!
Thanks anyway,
