Hello,
I succesfully installed OS Peppermint 3 on Asus EEE PC 1101HA (dual boot with W7), before the installation I had a problem with origo on half screen in live mode, but I solved it (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4955).

Installation seems ok, but when the Grub starts and I choose the "Peppermint, with Linux 3.2.0-23-generic", there is only blank black screen, nothing else.

But when I choose the "Peppermint, with Linux 3.2.0-23-generic" (Recovery mode)" and from Recovery menu I choose "resume (resume normal boot)", then starts a login screen on half screen, and then, I repeat:

Step one: Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to a console (edit: if on the Dell Mini you'll have to use the Fn-Ctrl-Alt-F1)
Step two: Login
Step three......
Code:
sudo service lightdm restart

...the system starts up. Any idea how to solve this problem, to normal boot Peppermint OS from Grub?
Thanks to all. I really like this distro.

After applying the "fix" you need to update grub...
Code:
sudo update-grub

so it will survive reboot.
If that doesn't do it for you post back for further....

Unsure but skip the "splash" part in:
--------------
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash console=tty1"
--------------

to this

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet console=tty1"

If you now consider this issue solved, can you please edit the first posting in this topic, and add:-

(SOLVED)

to the "Subject:" line .. so it now reads "Blank black screen after boot (SOLVED)".

That will help future readers search for a working solution :)

TIA.
