Trying to install Mint on another PC.

The SSD had a secure erase with parted magic and is empty.

 

I have the bootable USB stick.

But my monitor ( tried DVI-D, HDMI and VGA ) wont get a signal.

 

I'm installing mint on an i7 gigabyte gaming 3 mobo with 970 gpu.

So this is interesting.
I took out the SSD from my lap top ( the one im on right now ).
Placed the blank Samsung Pro SSD in this laptop.  And figure I would try to instal linux mint onto the SSD via this laptop.
I get on the linux desktop and start the install.  But my keyboard wont work?  I tried hooking up another keyboard via USB.  Nothing.
Mouse works fine via USB.

Do this before you waste more time trying other things.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/CDIntegrityCheck

 

If you still have the iso file around on a Windows computer, or even Linux, use this to verify it.  Scroll down to "MD5SUM on Windows"

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

 

Things like this will happen when you get a bad download, and the file system is all messed up.  The symptoms you are describing are pretty unusual, so this is the first thing you want to do.

I see nothing preventing you from using linux hardware wise so its probably as pcpunk suggested just a bad write or something.


You know you want me baby!

What happened exactly here, you were not able to get to the Linux Mint Desktop at all, or the Grub Screen?

 

Did you use this Install medium before? if so than what I said before won't apply of course.

 

Just to rule out coincidence will you provide the make and model of the laptop, the full Model Number and what country it is from.
