Re: security boot fail

With Acer you need to do the next things. https://itsfoss.com/no-bootable-device-found-ubuntu/ Step 1 Turn the power off and boot into boot settings. I had to press Fn+F2 (to press F2 key) on Acer Aspire R13 quickly. You have to be very quick with it if you are using SSD hard disk because SSDs are v...

WOW, if I had known it was THAT easy! It worked perfectly! I'm back on my Windows partition like nothing ever happened.

So, for future LINUX Mint Kernel updates, I just need to keep a copy of the 40_custom file to copy back in place?
Yes, if Windows is encrypted. :wink:
