Re: unallocated space on disk

my former home is now unallocated
that could mean:
- the existing /home is Not being allocated / used by the New System
- the existing /home is UN-allocated Free Space , as it got Formatted by the Installer.
:?

so, an screen_shot from Gparted - would assist .. .

Re: unallocated space on disk

if the New Installation, now has it's own /home, then you didn't specify that original /home,
in order for it to be reused again.

as suggested - - redo the Installation - - again.
& pay close attention, to what the Installer is saying.

Re: Windows 10 on Virtualbox - dvd driver

you should also give that win-10 some extra room, to move:
- - at least 4,000Mb of VirtualMemory
( assuming the Host has 8Gb for memory, then you can goto 5500Mb )

- - at least 50Gb of VitualDriveSpace

you should also enable NX / VTx in BIOS & in the Virtual Settings.
( in System / Processor Tab )

Re: Setting up for move to Linux

Hi phil, you should have an fairly straight-forward effort in installing that dual_boot system. & with that win-7 system, you can just use the Installer's partitioning menu, to set the size, for each system, - - by adjusting the slider with your mouse, to move that slider, to give what size you desi...

Re: 18.3 to 19.2 on Toshiba Satellite Pro

you should be able to upgrade from 18.3 to 19.2 by using the latest LinuxMint ISO & you can also write that ISO to an usb stick, in order to Install that version to your drive. as far as the higher usb port's power consumption, that may be an kernel issue, & Jean would have to shift to another LM19x...

Re: 8GB of ram, would more be worth it?

IMHO an amount of 8Gb - - is plenty .. of ram.
ie: I've not needed anything above that amount,, But - I'm not doing any Gaming // Cad either.
& that size will work well with most VirtualBox Scenario's as well.

if you have used that backup to restore a WindowsImageBackup to a new hdd, and then get an Grub Prompt - - that usually will mean that the Grub Boot is pointing to the wrong drive. - - or that drive no longer exists, or that the UUID is wrong, for the replacement drive. either way - - the Grub Boot ...

Re: Entire system freeze.

you shouldn't need to go back to LM17x - - just download the Mate // XFCE version of the current LM19x series.
& then redo the Installation - again.

Re: Entire system freeze.

that move of Mate 17.3 Rosa to Cinnamon 19.1 probably wasn't a good move, as the Cinnamon Desktop is more resource intensive that the Mate Desktop is. so, you could get away with installing the Mate Desktop, for the current LM19.1 system. - - you can use Package Manager aka synaptic - - to install t...
