When I press esc I get a menu that says, "Choose an operating system to start, or press TAB to select a tool: (Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice, then press ENTER.)
To specify an advanced option for this choice, press F8.
Tools: windows Memory diagnostic"
I pressed F8 to see what the advanced options were and it shows the following: "Choose Advanced Options for: Windows 7
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)
Repair Your Computer
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640x480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
Start Windows Normally"
And then it has a description for each function as you scroll down. I think I've seen that window before when I was going through the repair loop options, so I don't think that's the right screen. Also, when I used the LinuxLive USB Creator it said the Peppermint was not compatable, but it would use a configuration as close to it as possible. It said it formatted and the creation was successful. I don't know if I did something wrong or what I need to do from this point. I tried the F1 or F2, but I'm not sure if I should keep pressing it or just press it once. I will try each again just after this posts.
