Linux mint doesnt boot after install

Post by diasgabrie » Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:08 am

hi friends,

I've tried to install linux mint 14 in all possible ways, but after installation I restart my computer and it stops in a black screen waiting for an Operation System or a cd or something...

First I had windows 8 and I wanted to install mint in dual boot, second I tried to install only mint but no sucess.

what should I do?

Check that you don't have a UEFI BIOS. If you do, see if you can disable it.

The make & model of the machine would be helpful too.
