Run it from the DVD for a bit, as a test. Then, after running it a bit, click on the install icon to install it to your hard drive. Be sure to choose the option to erase the drive and put only Mint Cinnamon on the drive. I have also found that it is better to tell it you want to log in with a password than without.

Sorry just got a email saying "xfce 32-bit will be the most lightweight, so I suggest you go with that one."

I will download that one now and not use cinnamon version

How do I run it from the disc for abit, do you mean when it boots from the disc and it gets to the desktop where it has the 3 icons and the one is install Linux Mint, shall I leave it running in desktop for a bit with the disc and then install?

I am downloading the xfce edition iso file, should be done in a hour or less, will post a update once done and running from the disc for abit then installing and doing what you said about the logging with a password then without

When you boot with the DVD, it will put you into a working copy of Linux Mint. At that point you are running Linux from the DVD.

You will find that there is an "Install Linux Mint" icon. If you click on it, Linux Mint will be installed on your hard drive.

I am not having much luck with Linux Mint, first I could not install Linux Mint xfce, it froze on starting up so installing cinnamon and it first said about a file not matched during the install slideshow bit so clicked retry and was going up on the progress bar and now it has came up with the installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk

[errno 5] input/output

this is often due to a faulty cd/dvd disc drive or a faulty hard disk

It goes onto to say clean the disc or burn at a lower speed

I feel like giving up with it

Always burn dvd`s at the slowest possible speed given by the program

Try this.

Free ISO Burner

I would just go out and buy a couple 4 or 8GB flash drives, instead of wasting time with dvd`s, cd`s etc.

Yes, I use Power Iso too, it`s a great program.

And another fine program for usb sticks is Rufus.
