Installation of Linux Mint hangs on "detecting filesystems"


Today I encountered one problem I never saw before. I have no idea how to resolve it and I would appreciate any hint from you.

So, my situation: I tried to install Linux Mint (64 bit) on Dell Latitude E6400 with 320 GB SATA-drive. My installation medium was bootable USB stick, which I used already numerous times. After I entered username, password and laptops's name, installation stuck at the phase "detecting filesystems" and showing message - see the photo in attachment.

This is not my first installation, I saw already undetected WLAN modules, GPUs, etx. But this message I see for the first time.

I googled a bit. There are a lot of hints about it: it has something to do with UEFI, with error in the script, and so on. My BIOS is not UEFI, and - as I said - this USB stick was used already many times, so script error would show up much earlier.

Does anyone have an idea?

Update: I searched a bit, found out that "hid2hci" took care of Bluetooth, then I disabled Bluetooth in BIOS - and it works. Seriously. Can anyone explain me, why Bluetooth module has influence on the detection of file systems? :-)))

OK, at least now I can proceeed.
