PM5 installation is failing at the first hurdle.
I can select 'Try PM' or 'Install PM', but after that the screen fails - I get the usual box, but it is completely fills with a characters - all the same, approximating to a capital 'U'.
I guess a fundamental problem with the graphics on the machine.

Does this mean PM will not cope with it, even if there might be some work-around to install (like starting with a Windows Live CD and installing into space on the HDD?

Try this....

Boot to the Peppermint 5 LiveCD/LiveUSB .. when you get to the screen where it offers you "Try Peppermint" and "Install Peppermint" ..  hit the "Tab" key

You'll then see some white writing at the bottom of screen that ends with

quiet splash --

Use the backspace key to remove quiet splash --

and replace it with nomodeset

then hit enter to continue booting.

Did that make any difference ?
