Re: TPM 2.0 and what it is?

if you still have to use Windows - then use win-10 . . - it's still valid for another few years & then good for another few after that - you also can install O&O ShutUp10 onto that. in my case - I'm still got win-7 on an HP Laptop - for specific Ham Radio Software - that is connected to the ...

Re: Mint Install on externall SSD with Windows SSD disconnected

once you have written the LinuxMint ISO to an usb stick,
then you can reboot, whilst that is still inserted into an usb port,
from where it should get to the LinuxMint Desktop.

if you can get that far, do what mikeflan said above.
- do post back, if you do get stuck, at any point.

Re: Mint Install on externall SSD with Windows SSD disconnected

is there another SSD in that old HP Laptop :?:

if so, then reboot with that usb stick in it's port,
& check that all of the hardware does work & that the LinuxMint installer can see that other drive.

if there is no other SSD, then you really do have to use an dual_boot scenario.

Re: Hibernation and Secure Boot

that Hibernation and Secure Boot - is more an Windows thing . .

you could try using an Swap Partition, instead of an Swap File, though.
as that could actually work.

Re: just a quick question about dual boot

Hi geezuslvr ,
welcome to our forum

one reason for that, would be that Ubuntu Gnome is similar to the Mate DE.
and is lighter than the Mint Cinnamon Desktop Environment.
IE: it's an PCs resource scenario.

Re: Virus from Windows Partition on Linux Mint?

it won't work on your LinuxMint System
- as stated above - it won't have the necessary system permissions.
even it did manage, to somehow, get copied over, from the windows system.
