Mint Install Freezes


Mint mate 18.1 32bit install freezes halfway through. Usually around downloading language packages. Live runs well. Runs xsane, SCSI large format scanner, and Gimp.

ASUS A7N8X-X mobo. Athlon XP 3200+ CPU. Either Nvidia AGP or Matrox pci video card (either run well under live session. 2Gb DDR 400 RAM.

I can install Mint Mate 13 32bit and latest antix 32bit from optical drive.

Are you using a wired connection?

Have you tried disabling updates during the install or installing with no internet connection, then grabbing updates after the install is completed?

I have disabled option for downloading codecs, etc, and at somepoint opted out of the language packages. The install balked at that. Don't remember exactly what did I not option for. Will run the install again so I can report back what I am doing. Anything else to look for.
