spence, I need to go to bed, but before I do I'm going to give you a link to the Peppermint 7 release candidate ISO ... can you see if that gives you the same issue

I had a big summer pool party to attend yestiddy, got home after 1 AM... now ready to do some triage on the HP Pavilion G6... I do still have cd-r's, dvd-rw's laying about, but don't think I've ever burned a successful ISO with this laptop.  I'm going to download the initial release of p7 first... and try it on my original usb stick... which is 2gb...

all I'm doing, and have done previously, is to allow the usb image writer to create the LiveUSB.... 

hopefully, that's the proper process

I'd have expected that to work, but still can't hurt to try the RC, it has a slightly earlier kernel version, but beyond that not much difference.

Installed like clockwork on my First Attempt ... no need to TAB in order to set nomodeset. Now just need to poke around a bit... i like the new menu already... way coolio...

Initially wasn't sure where to place/start this thread PCNetSpec... feel free to place it wherever you prefer

Great news :)

I'll move it to the "Installation" forum once you reply to this posting

Do you want help making the few minor tweaks to turn the RC into the final ? .. there's nothing big, and non are 100% necessary.
