(GUIDE) HOW TO get LM8 when install will not work right.

Postby pokemoncatdog » Mon Jan 04, 2010 2:45 pm

IF you have installed LM8 but it will not boot up. DO NOT GIVE UP AND GO BACK TO WINDOWS!

I don't know why this is and I don't care, but this was the only way I could get LM8 working on by pc.

HOW TO get LM8 when install will not work right?

1. Get LM7 http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=38 and install it.
2. Upgrade LM7 to LM8 http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1144
3. Have fun with LM8 and F**K M$ windows!

Not a recommended solution, only use as the very last resort - there are issues with upgrading (any OS)

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