Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

Thanks @gold_finger. Please note I shunk the sda1 partition and I created a home partition post Mint 16 install. I left some space to play with other distros. Otherwise, I used the default install on Mint 16 Petra. No problems on providing a screen shot from gParted - I just have not figured out how...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z (Resolved

To @gold_finger, @FreedomOfTheOpenCode and the forum thanks for all your help and suggestions. I eventually decided on a complete fresh install with Mint Petra 16. I set the BIOS to Legacy mode and booted from live USB. I installed Petra to over write everything - no UEFI or GPT pre-setup. After upd...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

@ktan60: I changed the boot options to UEFI, secure boot OFF and was surprised to see the linuxmint, ubuntu and grub options available for a change. There being quite a few entries is ,I'm sure, a result of my using boot-repair and grub-customiser too many times. The machine booted and I was present...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

@goldfinger thanks for the tip on mode setting. I had a look at several other posts related to this subject. No new clean install done yet. The interesting thing was finding a key sequence ie. Ctrl+Alt+Del which enabled the notebook to reboot cleanly or Ctrl+Alt+F1 which, displayed a command screen ...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

Thank you @goldfinger, I really appreciate your help. If it weren’t for the forum and people like you I would have ditched the laptop. The ultimate test, which it will never pass :) can't fly and can't float. I think my installation of Mint Olivia has become so convoluted and I concur that a complet...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

goldfinger, many thanks for your time and effort to resolve my boot problem. After reinstalling my network-manager (another story - oops) I did as you suggested. The fstab is as follows: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # ...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

gold_finger, thanks the links and info . To reinstall Linux is going to take awhile as I have very slow internet access. I have read the info in the links before from Rod Smith, when I was desperate to get some sort of response from the computer after intstalling Linux. I hope this time it makes mor...

Re: UEFI Boot problems in Linux Mint15 on Dell 14z

@Derek_S thanks for you response, thanks also for taking the time to read throught the Boot-Repair output. I tried the grub-install and update-grub. It gave me another entry in the BIOS EFI and Legecy menus. I still had to use Legacy mode and F12 and select the entry under UEFI. It was a nice try th...
