Hi there, so far I’ve had great success with mint on various pieces of hardware i’ve installed it on. I typically try it out via my USB key first then if it all looks good i wipe the system and install mint via the installer. I have one system where when I boot it, after about 30 seconds, the system just reboots during the mint start up process (Doesn’t make it as far as the GUI) The system is an XW8600, newer system ( less than a year old) and has newer hardware in it. I’ve not tried other distros yet on this system to see if it is mint specific yet. Compatibility mode also fails but at least I can (kind of) see where its failing. The last message I saw was about USB Video and that is all I saw before it booted. Any thoughts on where to get startup logs or other ways to troubleshoot this?
solution: I t would be helpful to have some info on the hardware, but if you can’t boot Linux you can’t run lspci. Is there any method to gather a list of the hardware? If you only use a live system no logs are saved If you have the problem in an installed system and can boot the live CD/pendrive you can find the logs in /var/log and you can run lspci  You can copy the result into a file and save on the hard drive (be careful to save on the hdd not in the virtual disk of the live system) If you see something about video you might want to look at Xorg.0.log But USB Video? Such a beast exists though.

About Product:

The HP XW8600 workstation is a powerful, versatile workstation that’s perfect for engineers, developers and anybody needing support for graphically intensive applications. The XW8600 is a dual socket workstation equipped with two 64-bit Intel Xeon 5400 sequence quad core processors, up to 128GB DDR2 667MHz fully buffered memory , up to four internal SATA, SSD or SAS hard drives, up to three optical drives, and a wide array of high performance video cards for CAD, 3D rendering, modeling and other demanding applications. With 8 total USB ports (one internal), 5 PCIe slots and a PCI-X slot, the XW8600 has loads of expandability. Support for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux shows flexibility and versatility to run just about any ISV application necessary.

Granted, it’s only been six months or so since my last review of the xw8600, but if you didn’t upgrade then, you may want to take the plunge now. It’s a fast and extremely expandable system with options to preload Linux, Windows XP or Windows Vista in both 32- and 64-bit configurations. So no matter what your workflow is, you’ll be able to switch to a newer, more powerful system without missing a beat.

Like the previous xw8600 I reviewed, HP has applied a case skin from HP’s skinit site, as shown in Figure 4. If you can’t get a redesigned case, skins are the next best thing.
