Thanks Dan, I'll read that post and see if it helps me with OS priority.

Well, I updated to BIOS ver F9 still nothing. I can't run Live Mint in compatability mode or regular mode. With "nomodeset" in the boot options it fails to start X windows.

I honestly don't think using a DVD or Netbootin will help. Mint has an issue with my hardware. I may contact their support and see if they have experienced this before.

very strange... the reason I am stubbornly trying to get Linux on THIS computer is because I wanted to test games on modern hardware. I'm sure it will work fine on all of my other computers, but this one is key because I will eventually upgrade most of my computes in the future. Not to mention games run better on modern hardware, specially wine.
