Title: Peppermint Installer Boot Menu will not enter any options
Post by: benvigllow on March 30, 2017, 06:49:54 pm
Hello there. First time Linux user here and I'm trying to install Peppermint 7 onto an old PC with an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4400+, 4GB of DDR2 at 800mHz, and a 1TB HDD. I put the ISO file I obtained from the website onto a USB flash drive, and booted my PC from it. It will get as far as the Peppermint installer boot menu. When I attempt to hit enter to try Peppermint OS live, the computer beeps and flickers, then goes back to this screen. The same thing happens if I try to just install Peppermint OS.
