Hey Guys, I recently tried to install Linux Mint (Version 64 bit MATE) on a "New" computer, using a 4.7GB DVD-R Disk. I downloaded the ISO File on a Mac, and installed it using disk utility, by selecting Open Image, and then burning the ISO as an image. I say "New" because the computer has never been used, but it is a bit old.
I have Vista on the first disk drive. I use the second drive for Fedora. The automated update destroyed my Fedora 10 installation while trying to update to Fedora 12 - possibly because of GRUB issues. Now I am trying to install Fedcora 12 from the x86_64 ISO.
Trying to install windows 7, I created the disk using brasearo burner on my laptop, and now it gives me this when I try and boot from a disk on my tower (note: my laptop drained when it was done burning and read 'creating image checksum' with no progress over 5 minutes, and it did that beforehad as well (may be redundancy checks), and said 100% in the bar)
Using the standard live image (via USB) works fine (kernel 3.9.5-301.fc19.x86_64)
however any attempt to update the kernel (at time of writing that is 3.11.3-201.fc19.x86_64) will result in nothing booting after grub screen, the only fix is to return to booting against the older kernel.
All of the documentation on installation starts off with a CD or DVD that you boot from.
Many years ago, I did Sun (pre Solaris) installations booting from a local SCSI tape and then doing a true network installation using (remote dump piped to local restore) over the network - much faster than tape.
But I had a tape drive to boot from.
Is it possible to install fedora (18) using a plug-i
