I hit the arrow key and in the end booted into safe mode as the first option of mint to load didnt run. Pile of script came up and ended with

Gave up waiting for root device
Missing modules(cat /proc/modules; Is /dev)
Alert /dev/disk/by-uuid/20a186be-1e98-42df-b68f-3877eadce714 does not exist
Dropping to a shell!

Ends with a command line
(initramfs)

Runs ok but slow from the cd though so I assume download was ok. Right??

If you look at a grub.cfg file, the entries all point to a specific uuid and the error above is indicating it is looking for a partition with that uuid and it does not exist. Boot the Mint install disk and go to the site below, download and run the bootinfoscript. Post the output, a results.txt file here and someone should be able to give you some clarification.

So that means you are booting off the system you installed on-disk. Let's see that bootinfo output.
