you need to <br />
A) download a copy of linux (i always use ubuntu) <br />
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download<br /><br />
B) burn that copy of linux to a CD<br />
(to do this you need to go to your disk utility app and click burn image to disk and than select the iso you chose, using other software the option will be something like "create mountable disk" OR "burn bootable image")<br /><br />
C) boot to that cd--- to do this you put the cd in and reboot your mac while holding the 'C' key <br />
D) open the partition editor and create a partition on your hardrive the
size that you want linux to be (idealy replacing the main partition on
your computer not one of the smaller boot partition)<br /><br />*Optional- If you are planning on dual booting do not replace the main partition completely instead create a new linux partition from the main partition's free space additionally if you are dual booting and using Leopard or later you can
use the bootcamp app to create a partition than use the linux partition
editor to format the bootcamp partition to free space and than install
linux on it<br />
E) once you have the partition made simply follow the initial
instructions to install there will be an installer app that replaces
your now free partition with linux.<br />
<br />*if you chose to dual boot to access linux simply hold the 'Alt' key when booting up and than highlight the linux/windows HD<br />
Did you save it to cmos before restarting your computer ? F10
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system (note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back andchange the first boot device to your failsafe or optimized defaults) after windows has loaded your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart otherwise it will keep booting from the cd /dvd drive hope this helps
Restart your computer, press repetedly a key to enter BIOS, normally Del, go to Advanced BIOS Features probably and change to boot primarly from CD/DVD (1st Boot Device CD/DVD , or something like that), save and exit BIOS, and restart your computer with Linux Mint CD inside. Be aware that if you make wrong changes in BIOS, you could damage your computer.
Have you tried booting from the original system CD? Another option would be to download and burn an ISO image of Linux Ubuntu Workstation 9.10 Live CD. Try to Boot from this CD. If it boots successfully, it should give you the ability to access your hard drive to retrieve your data. It might also indicate if your system is having a hardware issue. We have installed and run Ubuntu Linux and plenty of these machines with good success... great way to troubleshoot hardware functionality and allow access to data without loosing it.
more info, please: anyone trying to help you with this needs to know the following: what linux and what linux boot method (USB, CD/DVD) and how you made your linux boot disk, at what point the Linux installer stops responding, and please God did you shut down Windows before starting the Linux installer?
