I am attempting to boot the live CD of Linux Mint 9 on my IBM Intellistation Z Pro. I get past the "booting in 10 seconds screen" and it goes to the screen with the Linux Mint logo on it. Here, it goes into a kernel panic. The caps lock and scroll lock lights flash, and it doesn't continue. I've tried both letting it boot automatically and manually selecting both Linux Mint and Linux Mint compatibility mode from the boot menu. I've already booted it successfully on another computer, so I don't think a bad burn is the culprit.
Additionally, the previous version (v8) of Mint had the same problem (and like v9, it worked fine on a different computer). However, Ubuntu 8.04 (a much older version) had no problems. Does anyone know if this model (Intellistation Z Pro) is known for having problems with Linux?
Next we could do with knowing what Graphics cards you are running, there seems to be quite a range that were offered on that machine. It might be you'll need to use some boot codes (command line boot options) to get you started.
