Did you verify the ISO when you downloaded it?

Also, that CPU is 64-bit capable. Not sure though how well Mint XFCE will run with a 1.0 GHz CPU.

Well the iso was OK, and I tried the x64 version of XDE and the same problem with the login...
Then I managed to install cinamon version without being asked for login details. Unfortunatelly it was working slower than Windows 7... I do not know what to think anymore.
