Re: System will not boot to grub, except manually through bios boot menu

The whole thing is strange, when I first saw the gparted partition layout I was surprized to find a bios_grub partition, normally at least with my setups you occasionally find a /boot partition, but mostly its ext4 / with a boot flag, followed by an extended partition, in my case 8gb with a swap par...

System will not boot to grub, except manually through bios boot menu

I had a SATA drive fail on linux mint Cinnamon 17.3, and had a new 3TB on the shelf, so figured it was time to upgrade, and install LM 18.1.
