Re: message @ install with usb install

Re: message @ install with usb install

ajcardiac: It looks like you did not install the Linux GRUB2 Bootloader to /dev/sda you have installed it to /dev/sda7 Do you mean i installed it to the wrong partition or do you mean that i should have installed it to both partitions?

Re: message @ install with usb install

Yes Penn:
I will do this that you mentioned in your last post ...... I'm wondering if shrinking the windows drive slows it down ? in My opinion windows is already slow.
