No matter what I do I cannot create a root file so I can install Linux Mint 17 on my laptop.I don't know what I'm missing, I've watched the b video several times, but I still don't get it. Am I dumb beyond redemption, or what. This my first post

Dam I just posted for you and lost it lol omg. I dont know what the b video is but you will have to give some more info. so that people can help you. Link us to the vid you are relying on. And no, you are not dumb, it is probably all just foreign to you as it was me a few months ago. The installer is quite easy to use just be careful as to which video you are using, some of them are not very good and might not address your exact situation.
You will probably be best off if you wait on someone to help you so you don't crash your whole system, and make sure you have a backup of some kind.
Did ya do some research on which one would be best for your system?
Are you installing along side of another OS?
Did you download an ISO, check the sum, then create a LiveCD, then boot from that CD, then choose "Install" from the Desktop?
