Hello, it's my first time with Mint, and I'm still sort of a noob to linux. I tried searching the forums but couldn't find a similar problem. I'm running a UNR / Win XP dual boot, and I want to install Mint (Felicia) into my ubuntu partition. I made a LiveUSB with Unetbootin, but none of the boot options in the grub/unetbootin menu work. Trying to run Mint normally stalls at the progress bar; a memory test tells me "Cannot load a ramdisk with an old kernel image;" and trying to boot normally stalls out with the message "Gave up waiting for root device" and drops to a shell that says "(initramfs)"
Compatibility mode stalls out and says:
Code: Select all
wl: module license 'MIXED/Proprietary' taints kernel
wl: 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A Link [LNKA] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
I'm not sure what module it's talking about, and what it loads before it stalls isn't the same every time
