Re: End of Kernel panic analysis and question

Defeating the Lock I went back and loaded an LMDE/2 .iso The installer ran OK -- but: in fallback mode -- un-recognized hardware. But: this would not be un-expected The installed system also boots up and runs -- although in fallback mode This tends to indicate something in the LMDE/4 or 19.3 kernel ...

Re: New Install Partitioning

I like to keep /home in a separate partition: By doing that it is possible to install and updated O/S onto your existing partitions. This will replace the O/S yet keep all your data including config files for apps. The normal set is: [*]UEFI ~ 100 MB remember to set flags E,B using FAT32 [*]Root ~ 3...

Re: End of Kernel panic

Since you posted the inxi report, does it mean that there is no kernel panic now when you boot from live usb? unfortunately: no what I did was simple: the "live" installer runs great! So I plugged in another USB/Thumb drive, switched to it using FILES, opened terminal then on the thumb drive and is...

Re: Not Automatically Booting into Linux Mint

check into the Motherboard / BIOS settings. These differ from one board to the next but what you're looking for is the default boot drive spec. make sure that is set to the drive that you want.

Re: EXT4 or NTFS on my Storage HDD?

is this partition to be shared with Windows ? Use NTFS; if only Linux then stick with EXT4

Take care: The Windows-10 on my research box marked the NTFS partition as READ ONLY. I had to get in there and corrected it: W-10 had prevented the Linux systems from writing to that partition.

Re: ntfs-3g need read/write on ntfs partition

thanks for all the prompt help !! I did a re-install and that seems to have fixed the issue. I'm thinking the Windows-10 system may have left the partition in a defect state. That seems odd though: The W-10 system did object to using the partition -- although it did want to do a "repair" The Debian-...
