Re: Microsoft will ship Linux Kernel in Win 10's WSL

I have windows in a dual boot on one system, so I can run my IP cams. Linux really doesn't have an app to run IP cams without paying big bucks and the rest of the systems Mint only, so no on running Microsoft crap unless I have to.
Thanks

Re: Running out of disk space

Thanks, Larry. I deleted the extra partition with Gparted. It was bad install from last year. I reboot and all came up right.

Re: Running out of disk space

The only problem there is, it's supposed to be a dual boot but in this case a triple boot.

Re: Running out of disk space

Come to find out, I must have set two different installs to the same drive. Call me whatever you want because I have. Man... Where was I that day? :shock: I have no idea why this happened but how do I see where the first is installed and get rid of it? A terminal command to find it then? The reason...

Re: [BOOT MINT TO AN ACER SOLVED] Installing 19 but not found

Yeah, Andy. I can remember back a few years that I had to set it up the same way. Even after all of that today, it tried to jump in again and mess with having to check one more time. I can't figure Acer out. I've never had any problems with my HP's. With my SSD I learned a bit more about them. I fig...

Re: Installing 19 but not found

To all, that's interested if any. I found the old link on how to search and boot Mint on an Acer (I think, any Acer).
https://itsfoss.com/no-bootable-device-found-ubuntu/
I knew it was out there and it works great plus I can boot to Mint or Windows.
Thanks, to all that helped.

Re: Installing 19 but not found

Yes, there is I can set it for legacy (MBR) boot instead of UEFI. I'll give it a try.
Thanks, Andy.

UPDATE: I tried the legacy a tried, but when it came back up it came up with a black screen saying again to insert a system disk. I guess another Acer problem.
Thanks

Re: Installing 19 but not found

Wow! This is the first I've heard a computer with "secure boot" disabled and Windows 10 boots but not linux. Usually it's the other way around. Anyways, this is what I do when installing Windows and Linux on the same hard drive: 1. BACKUP.....In my case, I CLONE so I don't have to keep installing p...

Re: Installing 19 but not found

Given that this is a re-install, I'd be tempted to boot from the mint installation USB and: In gparted create a new GPT partition table - this to wipe the drive. Create a new 500MB EFI partition, format fat32, flags esp and boot. Install windows - once installed, turn off fast boot. Install mint. I...

Re: Installing 19 but not found

If you think the UEFI is an issue, how do I fix it? Secure boot is disabled.

Re: Installing 19 but not found

Okay. Good, at least we can see the partition. Now try mounting the hard drive and check it has all the files/folders especially /boot/grub. Few questions: 1.) Can you boot to Windows; 2.)What happens when you reboot and don't do anything (don't press any keys)? Yes on the booting Windows. It boots...

Re: Installing 19 but not found

What do you mean by "I couldn't find where Mint was"? Can you boot Windows? What does "sudo blkid" tell you? (run on terminal after booting from a live flash drive or dvd) Yes I can boot Windows. Here's the blkid: mint@mint:~$ sudo blkid /dev/sda1: LABEL="Recovery" UUID="929E73999E737517" TYPE="ntf...

Re: Installing 19 but not found

The Boot-Repair didn't work Andy. Gonna try another. Called Resca-Tux. What do I have to lose? Thanks The Resca-Tux didn't work either. I didn't understand it at all.

Re: Installing 19 but not found

Thank you AndyMH . I have installed Win 10 first three times now and then Mint 19.3 also. I ran the Boot-Repair and it did find 19.3 and said it fixed it. Before shutting down to try it I wanted to get all of the info, setup and my email to mail it to me just in case. Hopefully shutdown and reboot w...

[Boot Mint to an Acer SOLVED] Installing 19 but not found

I went (F12 to the boot menu) and found two grub64efi's neither would boot 19. How do I remove both? I think therein BIOS, bu...
