First, you need to tell us what machine you are installing on, the distribution you are using, and the method you are using to install said distro (cd/dvd or usb stick).

The more information you can offer, the more help you will receive!

SO, you are booting your d620 from a usb stick, and selecting the install option? Or are you opting to start a live session then running the installer from inside Mint?

Did you ever get Mint sorted out? Looks like the newest version has come out, have you tried to install Mint 13?
