Whilst I research the runaway loop, can you boot to the LiveUSB, then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
and the contents of
Code: [Select]
gedit /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg

As an experiment, can you replace

quiet splash

with

acpi=off

leaving $vt_handoff in place .. then hit Ctrl+X to boot.

Did it boot ?

Changing the quiet splash:
Still hangs at runaway loop, does not boot, does not advance past go, does not collect $200

Can you try replacing

quiet splash

with

noapic acpi=noirq

if still nothing .. boot to the LiveUSB (and connect to the interweb either via wireless or ethernet cable) and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
then install smartmontools
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install smartmontools
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda

Is there any chance you can try 32bit Peppermint ?

and/or .. did you check the MD5 hash before burning the LiveUSB ?

I can try the 32 bit version but my laptop has 4 GB of RAM. Won't I be limited to 3GB RAM?

and...no...I tried using a windows program but couldn't get it to work right under command line (it wad a command line based windows md5 checker). Do you happen to know an easy Windows based md5 hash checker?

No .. the 32bit kernel has PAE support so can handle more that 4GB of RAM ;)

Okay, I downloaded the 32 bit kernel, and verified its md5sum.

I am planning on using the same flash drive that I had the 64 bit version on but are there any steps I should take to prepare the drive for instalation? Do I need to reformat it to blank it out? Asking cause I didn't do anything to prepare the drive when I installed the 64 version before. Wondering if that caused the problems.

What are you using to burn the ISO to the USB ?

Usually the USB stick creator will offer to format the stick as part of the creation process .. but it can't hurt to format it (as FAT32) first if you wish.

Probably best to format it as FAT32 in Windows first as I can't remember if Unetbootin offers to format the stick
