I checked out the the minimum hardware requirements for LMDE as far as possible and I think what I have will be OK especially as I'm installing with the lite desktop (xfce).
I tried another installation today because I've learnt a bit more about partitioning and tried it with "swap" partition and separate partion for "/home" like this
This layout was copied from another Linux system which I can
successfully install (PCLinuxOS).
The installation of LMDE completed OK.
When bootup from HD starts tho', precisely the following appears on the screen...
mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2200+ CPU
External Cache: 256K installed
No Bootable CD In ATAPI CD_ROM
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
GRUB loading, please wait...
... and that's it. I reckon it's further than I've got before and I've seen on forums that Error 15 at this stage means that GRUB can't find the file it wants to load. If this is so, it leaves me with the questions:
* Which file?
* Why is it not there?
* Where can I find it
* How can I put it where GRUB wants it?
* or is something wrong with my partitioning?
I would be most grateful for any enlightenment...
