I also installed it with the CT63.

Because as far as Mint is concerned (nightly builds or vanilla Mint) there is no second phase.
Try to install it in 030 mode first, then update Mint with the latest build.

Be sure to have deactivated everything in your auto and accessories (except xcontrol) when you try to insall, run the installer from TOS (not from Mint or Magic) also you need to properly partitioned C,D and E partitions with hddriver before installing ( C : less than 1GB BIGGEM type , D: 1 GB LNX type, E: and other partitions FAT 32 or whatever you need and the size you need : FAT 32 can be almost any size if you want to use it only under Mint, but limited to 1 GB if you want to access it thru TOS). If after the first reboot, the install doesn't restart automatically you can restart it manually.
Now if you want a simple Mint setup, without the fancy Unix tools and a pure GEM system, VanillaMint is the way to go :
After the reboot, press shift key to enter Mint.ini config and deactivate the protected memory mode which is activated by default.

You should be more specific. You're saying that the easymint installer depacks the archive, copy stuff into C:\EASYMINT, reboot and nothing happens?
Also, where do you have the archive from? Are you sure your hard disk is OK (can you depack the ZIP archive manually without CRC errors?)

So I won't be able to assist you until I find a new one.

I recommend to keep memory protection on. If you need to disable it, it means that some software is doing something nasty and you will likely run into trouble. If you need to allow individual applications to poke and peek into other programs' memory (or even worse, into memory owned by no-one!) you can do this by setting the appropriate flags in the program header.
Faucon2001 wrote:MintNP was the old way to do that back to version ... I can't remember, too long ago
Now, it's set up in Mint.ini that you can access at boot by pressing "left shift"
I am not going to argue, Joska is right in principle, memory protection is an important feature, I just beleive that it can be very confusing for not so experimented users ; for example Things crashes like a big poo if you don't set right the memory share flag, and that's not the exception unfortunately. So, a none expert user may give up thinking that VanillaMint is not working.
I confirm, Vanilla Mint works great on the CT60
By the way, I have recovered my IDE DOM, so I am back on track to try to install EasyMint. I'll let you know.
