Please excuse the bump, but here's the story so far.
I have an xplora e16 laptop, on which I tried to do a clean install of Linux Mint 12 from a Linux Format DVD cover disc.
As I posted here: http://forum.novatech.co.uk/showthre...mouse-response
, I had issues.
In addition to my downloaded 64 bit CD, I downloaded a 32 bit version, and today I have tried all 3 media as a Live CD with the following results.
While the DVD and the 32bit CD were installing I got a string of errors showing: ERROR EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 64 (or other numbers)
Mint 12 installed eventually from both discs, but the pointer was still sticking for up to 12 seconds, almost as though it was waiting for memory to catch up.
I then tried the 64bit CD which failed to install at all, showing Disc Error 80, AX=4200 drive 9f, whatever all that means!
Googling Disc Error 80 didn't help.
Any help will be much appreciated.
