Trying to install Linux 6.1, and when I get to the part that it recognizes the mouse I hit enter and all you see is the cursor blinking. Have waited ten minutes but nothing happens so I have to reboot and start the process over again.

hey choose a text based install instead of a graphical one and your installation will be over in under 20 minutes
at the prompt type text and hit enter

You say at the prompt enter text and hit enter. Upon boot up they give you two options, normal and expert there is no option for graphical or text, please clarify since I have tried over six times and each time I have to reboot and start from the beginning.
