Can disk boot Ubuntu but not Mint
I recently purchased a laptop that came with Windows 8.1 as the OS. I am trying to switch it over to Linux Mint 17.1 (Rebecca). I found an Ubuntu disk loader that I placed on a DVD and it boots just fine. Downloaded the 32-bit Linux Mint .I so and burned it to a DVD. Tried to boot from it and nothing. Being new, the problem pretty much has to be something insanely simple but I sure can't find it. Would really appreciate any expertise out there.
