I'm trying to install Linux Mint 14 from a live cd on a HP Pavilion laptop. I got some problem with X and the nvidia card, which prevents X from starting (and therefore prevents the live installer from starting).

I'm following this tutorial(link), but it requires rebooting for unloading the nouveau driver. But rebooting from a live cd means that I lose all progress and must restart from scratch, therefore it's not viable.

Therefore I'm looking for a way to have the system installed on hard drive from the command line interface.

What should I do? I want to install a user friendly and recent Linux distribution. If I'm not able I will have to install Windows 7 :(((
