Unhappy Problem installing Linux Mint 17 Mate 32 bit.


I have Linux Mint 14 (Nadia) 32 bit on my Dell Optiplex 760 computer. I bought Linux Mint 17 Mate 32 bit on DVD. When I put DVD to DVD drive I do not see on the screen Install Linux Mint 17. I would like to know what should I do to install it?

I'd think the disc you have isn't an official build?

The official Linux Mint site is at the link below. Near the top of the page is a link to the Mint user manual. If you don't have much experience installing a Linux system, it would be a good idea to read at least the installation part before beginning anything. You might give that a read before or while downloading. Reading the release notes might also be helpful. The left column indicates the Desktop, cinnamon, mate, KDE, etc. You need to do research and decide which you want. You also have the option of 32bit or 64bit. If your computer is older, use the 32bit.

You need to boot the live CD, there is an option on the desktop to install.

Kind regards

Oh, didn't consider this. "You need to boot the live CD, there is an option on the desktop to install."

Yes, tell us how you tried to boot or install this.

When you boot the DVD, you will see a countdown timer indicting automatic boot in 10 seconds and counting down. Just let it boot and you will be taken to the Desktop where you have the Install Linux Mint option.
