Peppermint Installation hangs up on choice screen (solved)
« on: June 03, 2014, 04:26:56 pm »
Hi again,

I am trying to install on these machines
Dell Latitude D600
IBM Think Pads - I only have the product ID - 2883GKU

When i try and install from CD it hangs up on the screen where I can choose to install, run from CD, Check installation disk.

I cant get it to install.
If someone could please help me out on this.

thanks

I will definitely try that out

If I can ask
What would make it compatible with os3 but not os4?

Thanks

I'm fairly sure the D600 comes with either a Pentium M or a Celeron M processor.

Some of the "M" processors do support PAE, but they don't "report" that they do .. and Peppermint 3 was the last version of Peppermint to have a non-PAE kernel.

Ubuntu decided in their wisdom ::)  to drop support for non-PAE kernels after Ubuntu 12.04 (which Peppermint 3 is based on)
