Unable to Install Peppermint 10 Respin (SOLVED)
« on: July 22, 2020, 11:15:28 am »
Hi All.

I recently tried to install Peppermint 10 Respin on one of my machines, but I ran into an issue I cannot find in the forums. The boot drive I created loads to the GRUB menu properly, but when I click on any option from the menu. this happens to the screen.



Its not an issue with the USB drive itself, as I was able to use the drive to install Peppermint 10 Respin on a laptop. I used the ISO link provided on Peppermint's site and confirmed the m5checksum matched, so it is not the ISO File. Included below is the inxi -Fz of the machine that is not reading it.

System:    Host: jonathan-System-Product-Name Kernel: 4.18.0-18-generic x86_64

I don't think it is a UEFI issue because I can run a boot drive for Peppermint 10 original without issue. It's just an issue with trying to install Respin. Please let me know if there is any other info I need to provide to help. Thanks!

Hi JonOfLA,

My guess is that you are having a video driver problem. Since I am not an expert at solving such problems, I will defer to someone who is!  ;D Until that assistance arrives, let us know if you can try the option in the GRUB menu to edit the kernel parameters. When you try that, does the screen still present you with an unreadable image (thus making the edits impossible)? 

Regards,

Hi Slim,

For the Installer's GRUB, do you mean the key at the bottom where it says "e to edit the commands before booting"? If so, I am able move on to the next screen without the screen issue. Thanks!

Hi JonOfLA,

OK, good (and "yes" I did mean the key at the bottom). So has this allowed you to resolve your issue? Have you been able to install Peppermint 10 Respin ??

Hi Slim,

Forgive me but I am inexperienced in regards to troubleshooting. I can set the parameters but I am not sure what (or how) to set them to. What parameters would you recommend setting to retry the installation? Thanks again!

Hi JonOfLA,

First I must say that I do not use nvidia drivers, but you could try:

nomodeset

and see if this helps. Let us know and if it still does not help you then perhaps someone with more knowledge about this can jump in to assist you.

Hi Slim,

I was able to use the command to run the installer and successfully installed Peppermint 10 Respin. I had an issue when booting after installation where the screen did it again, but I was able to resolve it by permanently adding the command.

Thanks Again!!  :)

Do you mean that you have added nomodeset to Grub?

I think that you should have a look at Software & Updates > Additional Drivers and see if you need to install Nvidia drivers for your graphics card?

I do not have Nvidia grahics but I've seen innumerable posts where the display is corrupted due to missing drivers.
