as a project I have been building a supercomputer cluster out of old(ish) computers. I decided to use Linux mint and successfully installed it on two out of 5 computers however on the 3rd computer I encountered an error. the installer would run fine up until the select the drive screen at which point it reverts to the previous screen (select partioning)and this ends up in a loop (parting to drive select to portioning to drive select ect), I have tried both drives and nether make any change. it is not the boot media as it worked on the pervious 2 devices. I made a new boot usb a (this time 64 bit) and encountered the exact same issue. the computer specs are as follows:
- dual core intel chip
- 1.5 gz chip
- 2 GB ram
- 580 GB(one 500 GB and one 80 GB drives)
- previously running windows XP
I am unable to install the media on the 4th computer due to a issue with the boot loader.
