Try Google. Thousands of people have installed on an HP Mini.

A few things to check.
Check the downlaoded iso file md5sum

If that checks out ok boot from the live cd again and at the first purple screen (with the man at the bottom, press any key then select language, then "check cd for errors".
If that's ok, at the same screen press the F6 key. This should bring up more options for boot parameters. The correct one will depend on some things, mostly graphics card. The nomodeset option is commonly used to get past this point, but as I say, your graphics card will decide which option(s) will work for you.
