Elementary garbage
 
I've been playing around with Mint for the last couple of weeks and I really like it. I'd like to test drive Elementary before I make my final decision, but all of the ISO files I've downloaded have been garbage. Is there a trick to that I'm missing? Had no problem with Mint.

Hi...

Where you did you download the .ISO's? Have you tried downloading the image from another location, perhaps here? Also, are you attempting to burn them to a CD or to a flash drive? :)

HOW have you been burning the iso images ???????
you NEED!!!!! to " burn as image"

coping the iso to a dvd WILL NOT WORK

in mint use K3B and burn as image

Got up this morning and downloaded it again, went off perfectly. ????? Got no clue what was going on. I downloaded it directly from their website, so didn't expect any problems. Whatever it was, it must have disappeared overnight (computer shut down). Anyway, thanks for the responses, I always learn something new from them.

You're welcome, glad you got it taken care of. :)

I have found that Elementary works quite nicely on Mint.
