Should my computer use Mint Debian version?

Postby laika207 on Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:24 pm

Hi,

I have this mainboard : Asrock B75 pro 3M with UEFI Legal BIOS with GUI support
I have one SSD and one HDD. I want to install Linux Mint Debian , dual boot with Windows 7 on SSD samsung 830 for OS and a WD HDD for data

However, I read on mint debian home page that :
No EFI, GPT or secureBoot support.

Should I be concern about this cons ? Could linux mint, SSD, my mainboard and ivychip 3225 (intel HD graphic 4000) work properly together? Do you have any notice for me when setup this system.

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You can possibly work-around that issue or use legacy bios mode (mbr setup..)
