Countdown loop

Postby Rickmasta » Fri Nov 14, 2008 1:21 am

When I try to install linux mint onto a flash drive, I fallowed the tut given pen drive linux, ... m-windows/

and whenever I boot from the USB... it just keeps on saying Automatic countdown, and it counts down over and over, whatever I do, the only thing that works is Memory test. Any help? I really want to be able to boot it from my usb,

I mean, when I boot my computer from my USB, it goes straight to the mint desktop.

Sorry but this is really a confusing post
Do you end up in a count down loop or does your computer ignore the USB pen drive?
The how to section of the forum has two nice tutorials
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
