Linux Mint takes 2 tries to boot.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 30, 2012
When I start the computer the grub screen shows, I choose linux mint cinnamon 14 and then the screen goes blank. Nothing else happens after that, I have to hold the power button down. Then when I start it again it works fine, and this cycle repeats every time I start the computer. What is wrong?
Cant get Linux Mint Live USB To Boot With GUI
- date: July 24, 2013
I'm trying to dual boot my new Acer V5-122p with the pre-installed Windows 8 and Linux Mint 15 Mate. The laptop doesn't have a DVD drive, so I have to boot through USB. When I boot Mint in UEFI mode, the Mint logo appears as if it's going to work, but then it just goes to essentially a command line([email protected]
~ $) and gives me an error saying, "Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?" It basically ends telling me, "The x server is now disabled. Restart MDM when it is configured correctly."
Someone suggested I try:
sudo Xorg -configure
("Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed. Server terminated with error (2). Closing log file.")
sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
("cp: cannot stat '/root/xorg.conf.new' : No such file or directory")
Linux Mint Windows 7 Dual Boot Startup Manager Problems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 5, 2011
I have Linux Mint 11 and Windows 7 dual boot
The boot menu wouldn't show on start up so I went to linux mint startup manager to try and change that.
It didn't work.
So I set the default to windows.
Now Windows won't show on the screen.
So I'm using the linux mint cd to go online.
Had no luck logging in or re-registering with linux mint forum.
Of course I could log in here.
Wth do I do to get linux back without having to reinstall, please?
Thank you in advance
Removed Linux Mint PartitionGrub RescueCan't Boot from CD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 23, 2011
I'm extremely new to Linux and have run into my first real problem. I am running a Lenovo Ideapad Z560 with Windows 7 installed. I installed Linux Mint last month and last night decided to remove that partition which I did under windows disk management (I don't remember if I used WUBI or rebooted from a Live disk to install Mint in the first place). I continue to use windows just fine for the rest of the night. This morning I wake up and all I can get to is the grub rescue screen. I've read many threads online trying to fix this myself, but to no avail for one main reason. I can't boot from a CD. My comp won't let me enter the BIOS at all (F8, F12, Esc, F1, F2, etc...) and entering a CD into the drive does nothing. I have a windows recovery disk and a Ubuntu Live Disk, but they do me no good since I can't get past this grub rescue screen. I've entered "ls" and got "(hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos4) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1)". When I enter "set&q

Hello Linuxquestions dot org. This used to be the site for me to go a long time ago for answers to almost anything. I've not posted in a long time, but I've always logged in occasionally and peeked around. Okay, I've used Linux for Years, but I'm no expert by any means which is why I'm here. If I were hard core, I'd be on DSL or another distro probably, probably not because I'm lazy like that, but I have searched the forum.
My issue is that I have an old pc AMD X2-4400 (not relevant), with two drives installed. A 250 GB and a 500GB I salvaged from an old DVR (This could be my problem). The 250 has Win 7 fresh installed before Mint 17. I seldom boot into Win7. But it seems that everytime I do, my Mint Drive no longer Boots. This is how it seems anyway. I can install Mint, Update, Install packages, and use it forever from the 500GB drive. I can reboot a few times at least for updates and crap to take effect (I know there's a way around this, but since I use the updater, I d
Linux Mint 15 refusing to boot after errorless install
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
Installed Mint on a brand new Lenovo Z585 Ideapad alongside the pre-installed Windows 8. Everything seemed to go fine, until the reboot, which simply dumped me at a Grub prompt.
I tried the usual ls investigations, but my Mint partition (/dev/sda9) returns an error along the lines of "invalid file name ''." - sorry I can't be more precise right now.
I've booted back into the LiveCD and run boot-repair, which generated the following summary - http://paste2.org/Owy3XNpH.
os-prober recognises my Windows installs (the real install and the recovery thinger), but no Mint.
As far as I can see, browsing the partition through the live cd, the install itself is fine, but I'm more than willing to be corrected. Can anyone help?

I used Ubuntu's 'usb-creator-gtk' to write Linux Mint to a USB flash drive and it reported success. Then, when I rebooted, I got the following error message from Syslinux:

Linux Mint & Ubuntu install fine but will not boot after install.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2013
So I have this Toshiba Satellite p755 that came with windows 7 at the time.
During a bios update the thing freezes for a couple hours and I eventually am forced to unplug the thing. It turns into a 700 dollar brick that freezes at the windows screen every time.
I decide to just switch to Linux.
Load up Mint and everything is going well. the live cd boots up and the install goes well, everything is great. go through the reboot process, cd pops out, reboots, FREEZES.
I do this a few times before I decide to try ubuntu. same exact thing happens with ubuntu.
as a last ditch effort i decide to try the "boot repair disk" at source forge by yannubuntu
It ran through its thing and said it did some stuff, but the problem persisted.
I am thinking it must be something deeper than the operating system that im running because all three OS's freeze at the start screen.
I thought that perhaps it was the hard drive itself, but then how is mint and Ubuntu able to install
