cant boot into laptop

Postby Minty95 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 6:44 pm


I have just uninstalled ubuntu to try MInt 5 Main Edition (revision 1) on my laptop MSI megabook S270

The live CD worked just fine but after installing Mint from the CD it I get a blackscreen on the first boot with BusyBox v1.1.3 message and (initramfs) and nothing more

It seems that it is due to my video card ATI radeon express 200M but am stuck on this black screen and don't know what to do to get into Mint

Any help would be nice

I have reinstalled twice and the CD have used it to install on another 'normal' PC so I know that its not the CD
