It will be Linux only, so no problem installing or booting to live using DVD or stick - correct?

Re: How to boot from a full Mint install on stick, just like a live CD but with all the full install goodness?

Hum not sure what goes on. What's the brand of your laptop ? If it's an Acer or HP, the answer is probably that secure boot needs to be turned off. Otherwise I dont know, but next time I cross that brand I will trick my Mint stick on it. As kc1di said, you could try refind as your boot manager. Ther...

Re: Install on iMac

Yes the imac can boot an external drive (USB or external hard drive or CD/DVD) even if the internal hard drive is corrupt. If your intent is to single-boot linux (no dual-boot with macOS), then you can install with whichever mode you prefer, Legacy or EFI, and that will make no difference. (if you w...

Re: What Are the 5 Green/White Dots During Startup?

In my understanding, the dots are the splash screen and do not indicate any progress, they are just stating "I'm working". I didnt get them in Mint 17, but have them on 18 & 19. I think they also depend on the bootmode : Legacy vs UEFI. In legacy mode I see a black screen with the text "Linux Mint" ...

Re: Install on iMac

Does the iMac even have an internal optical drive? you have the machine, so you should tell us. But following the specs on everymac.com that I liked to, yes the machine has an optical drive. Yes you can boot from DVD, either with an internal or external drive. It's the same process as for a USB sti...

Re: Install on iMac

To burn the live USB, you can use etcher from macOS. From Mint there is a default utility mintstick (Menu > Accessories > USB Image Writer), and from windows use Rufus . To boot the USB, plug it, power on the iMac and press alt/option ; after some seconds you should see the built-in apple bootmanage...

Re: Problème dual boot linux sur mac

Cela aurait-il pu causer la perte des données Ah oui si tu as formatté la partition, c'est cela qui fait qu'elle est vide à présent, pas de doute. Perso quand j'applique les opérations avec g...

Re: Install on iMac

Following your infos, the machine is probably this one : https://everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-i5-2.7-27-inch-aluminum-mid-2011-thunderbolt-specs.html (or the variant at 3.1 GHz or 3.4 GHz ) This is perfectly compatible with Mint 64 bit.

Re: How to boot from a full Mint install on stick, just like a live CD but with all the full install goodness?

If I boot into Windows for work, the BIOS UEFI boot menu entry for "ubuntu" is removed. Several firmwares remove boot entries if they think they are useless, e.g. if they refer to a drive that is not present at boot. So that's probably what happens. Try installing grub at the fallback location on t...

Bon ben on a notre réponse et elle est mauvaise : la partition linux est vide... On dirait que la partition a été formattée. Une idée de ce qui s'est passé ? Est-ce que tu as une autre partition Linux quelque part sur cet ordi ? Si tu avais des données importantes sur cette partition, avant d'essaye...

Congrats !
Yes the startup disk trick re-creates a boot entry in the NVRAM for macOS.

Enjoy Mint

Re: Dualboot MacOS 10.6.8 and LM 19 xfce - grub won't boot MacOS

Hello, yes in principle it's possible to have a situation where exiting grub boots you to macOS. (I have never used this route myself, preferring refind, but have seen several reports of people doing it this way) In that case what happens is that after you exit grub, the apple firmware tries to boot...

Re: Dualboot MacOS 10.6.8 and LM 19 xfce - grub won't boot MacOS

Hi, I didnt know grub now had entries to try to boot macOS. Anyway it doesnt seem to do a good job at it. Looking at your boot report, it seems your boot entries for macOS in the NVRAM are corrupted. I propose to fix the mess, and take the occasion to use refind as your boot manager instead of grub....

Re: Problème dual boot linux sur mac

Ne te tracasse pas avec le fait de ne pas pouvoir démarrer la clé bootable depuis ce grub. Les clés bootable sont formattés de manière un peu exotique, et donc c'est normal je pense : le grub standard ne sait pas qu'il faut aller monter le système de fichier compressé squashfs qui est sur la clé (si...

Re: laptop screen broken but display brightness still consuming power

Thanks for the suggestions. On macs you dont have access to a firmware interface / BIOS, which makes things a bit harder. I will look at the undervolting, I have never done that so need to do some research especially for a mac. For the GPU, I guess I need to disconnect them from the motherboard, tha...

Re: laptop screen broken but display brightness still consuming power

Usage shows 0.0%, doesn't look like it's drawing power from what you've posted. Did you check the readings when the display was active, although not working? I'd expect more than 17W with a working display. Might be worth temporarily hooking the cables back up to test this. the usage is 0% because ...
