Mint 7 Instal from Labs CD re-boots to GRUB error 18
Newbie talking here
Had Mandriva, wanted to add Mint7,tried directdownloadfile, which each time installed 2.3 of 2.5Gb. then bought CD.
Installed that side-by-side in a partitioning mess with the 3 unsuccesful 2.3s (which it called ubuntu), 'cos didnt want to lose Mandriva.
Grub error 18 on restart.
Then tried clean instal.
Re-installed mandriva side-by-side
clean installed mandriva
working, back to where I started!
The Mint CD works fine as diskdriveOS, but not as onboard OS.
The partitioning shown now is normal looking just Mandriva and Swap and 140G free etc.
I see some ref.s here to Grub errors, but nothing I can understand.
When bootloading stops at error 18, there's a cursor there which looks as tho there's something useful I could type in?
