I'm trying to install a Linux distribution on my new setup, but after the first tries I now have Windows installed on a partition and a Linux Mint install on an extended partition that does not start, and does not provide a usefull information for me when it errors. Mint boots but it hangs on some memory errors that I cannot understand.
- Processor: Intel Core i3 2120 @3.30GHz
- Chipset: Intel Sandy Bridge
- Graphic Interface: PCI-Express
My actions so far:
3 X installed Ubuntu 12.10 (64bit) - after boot I get an orange screen (some errors that convinced me to reinstall 3 times).
installed Windows 7 - working (drivers installed from original website)
- installed Linux Mint, Mate 64bit - after boot it hangs on some errors
Can anyone make a suggestion on what I should do to run Linux Mint on my computer ? Should I try installing the 32bit version ?
On top of that, the Mint version I installed on my pc does not start in a VirtualBox either.
Update: i've managed to run Linux Mint Mate 32bit in VirtualBox, but when trying to boot from flash the installer to install the same version on an extented partition i get a weird screen and hangs there.
