Let me just state that I am a newbie with Linux Mint. That said, I've been trying to run 64-bit LM13 Cinnamon on a separate 2.5" laptop hard drive enclosed in a USB drive case. It will install just fine and boot the first time (I have done this 4 times now), but upon rebooting I'm given the prompt:
Error: Unkown File System
Grub Rescue \>
I have searched other forums and this one, and I tried using Super Grub Disk to fix Grub, however it was not able to detect anything at all even when that drive was the only one connected to the laptop. I am totally at a loss for what to do.
Is it just the nature of having an internal HDD hooked up to a USB enclosure that's giving me problems? My laptop is set to boot from USB first by default, so I just wanted to have it to where if it was plugged in I could use Mint, otherwise I could use Windows.
Thanks for any and all help.
