Linux Mint has a Create rescue floppy disk feature found here:
Control Center > StartUp-Manager > Advanced > Misc. 'Create rescue floppy'
However only the oldest of PC's and Laptop's have a floppy disk.
The Linux Mint user that clicks on 'Create rescue floppy' immediately see's 'Formatting Floppy' regardless if they have a physical or virtual floppy device on that system.
My suggestion is for that the Linux Mint StartUp-Manager code be rewritten with more options such as CD,DVD,USB based Pendrives AND the code looks for the media to be present, mounted and then prompts the user if it should proceed with formatting that CD/DVD,USB Pendrive etc.
In the Linux Mint Installed Programs: Grub-Rescue-PC
The Grub-Rescue PC package contains three GRUB rescue images that have been built for use
with the traditional PC/BIOS architecture:
- grub-rescue-floppy.img: floppy image.
- grub-rescue-cdrom.iso: El Torito CDROM image.
- grub-rescue-usb.img: USB image.
AND include that option as well as updating the Mint Rescue Disk feature to cover as many problem scenero's which could quickly be corrected using that feature.
