Peppermint 10 has the same problem as other distros
« on: May 29, 2019, 06:08:46 am »
Hello guys !

I  tried to install Peppermint 10 on my Asus x553ma laptop but I think ( I'm not sure ) I know why it hangs after you press 'install now' or 'try peppermint' if any of you have the same problem as mine
I encountered this problem on other distros as well,  such as Ubuntu, or KDE Neon. In particular,  all the distros that have some kind of fancy modern look.
Peppermint 10 does run on my PC without any problems but I noticed that it automatically detects and installs my nVidia graphics card . It might try to detect and install my intel integrated graphic card so that's why it doesn't work on my laptop.

If any of you guys know the fix for this, I would highly appreciate to know it.
Sorry if this problem has been written before / for my english mistakes

Thank you !

Hi valiii1313, and welcome to the forum :)

Does the LiveUSB boot to a working desktop if you choose "Try Peppermint" .. or does the LiveUSB also fail to boot ?

Thank you, PCNetSpec for your response and welcoming !

I am using a dvd disk for Peppermint 10; I am getting the same grey screen for both of the options; It doesn't pass that grey screen
On Peppermint 9 I also get the same grey screen for 2 seconds but then it boots into the menu

Maybe an issue with your hardware and Peppermint 10's newer kernel .. maybe you'd be better off installing Peppermint 9, then manually upgrading it to Peppermint 10, but not applying the HWE .. that way you'd have Peppermint 10 but with the Peppermint 9 kernel.

Manual upgrade instructions here:
