Have you read Brian's (@Condobloke 's) Spoiler content above at #9 ? Just substitute DVD for USB stick and it works the same, for you to try it out.
If, after trying it out, you decide you want to install, then while the DVD session is running, double-click the Install icon on the desktop.
If you want to erase Windows, choose to erase whole disk and install MInt.
If you want to dual-boot, choose to install alongside Windows.
yes i am using a windows computer, the specs are aboveWhat did you use to write the image to dvd ?
Are you using a windows computer to do this ?
