Mint doesn't boot from CD at all (Asus N50VN)

Post by szu » Fri Jun 19, 2009 4:55 pm

Hello,

I'd like to install Mint linux on my Asus N50VN notebook, I have Mint 6 and 7 installations CD's, but neither of them boots antyhing,
altough they work on other computers.

I've set boot priorities in BIOS so that CD/DVD is first. Moreover, other distributions of Linux work fine. When I power on the computer
with the CD inside, I can hear it's reading the disc for a while but all I can see is a black screen and I have to restart.

other distributions of Linux work fine.
Are they in the "Debian family"?
It's very unusual not to get anything at all with OK CDs

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
