Celena did not have an XFCE desktop environment (DE), and XFCE is the only DE that may work with that small amount of RAM. :(

I think you might struggle with a live-cd install with that amount of ram, but I could be wrong. You need to go for something that gives you a straight install, but I don't know which Distro's do that nowadays, except Slackware.

I have had people tell me the installed Cassandra XFCE with 128 MBs of RAM.
You just have to make a swap partition before using the Live CD.

I had the same problem with celena with 256MB of ram
if you can up it to 384MB or more it should install fine.

You didn't mention which version of Mint you were trying to install, but with that amount of RAM I would recommend Cassandra XFCE Community Edition. It isn't as resource heavy as the GNOME or KDE versions. Should run nicely on your system.
