I added the image as Details.zip, the image was too large

what's this following code to type in your step 1?
I generally never dual-boot and have no purpose for windows. I have about as much use for windows as my car has for flat-tires, exceptions are when someone asks me to fix the windows and not replace with Linux. I only do re-installs when I'm repairing a PC and sometimes I have to hunt for distro's that will run properly on old hardware. Generally, I make the swap double the size of ram and make a root partition way larger than suggested as quite often a year down the road an upgrade won't install because the root put there earlier was too small.
I've noticed that Ubuntu likes to automatically install the swap at the end of the drive and LM seems to like the beginning of the drive. I often see the swap as sda5 inside of an ext4 partition of sda2, but sometimes it's by itself. I've seen the swap as sda1, sda2 and sda5. I've seen / as sda1, swap sda2 and /home as sda3, it all seems to work.
I see a system info button in the control center for most distro's except LMDE, why's that?
