I am trying to fresh-install Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64bit version on my laptop (Pentium dual-core T3200; 4GB RAM; Intel graphic card). It boots to the selection menu (Start LM/Start in compatibility mode/Memtest/Boot from HDD) from USB and/or DVD (tried both).
No matter whether I try normal or compatibility mode, after a blank screen in first case and a few lines of text in the second the computer restarts and boots into an existing Win7 64bit.
The same thing happened while trying to install Arch Linux 64bit, however I had no problem with Arch 32bit. Right now I will try with LM 14 Cinnamon 32bit.
[UPDATE] As expected LM 14 Cinnamon 32bit works perfectly.
