Re: USB hub recognised but not working

Thanks Spearmint2. Yes tried unplugging everything, except the hub, and plugging just the mouse into the hub. Doesn't work. Same with just the keyboard. No it's an unpowered one. But would have thought, with 4 ports on the Mac, all unused except the one with the hub, and with only one mouse in the ...

Either method should work, both involved booting into Windows safe mode. Method posted by pbear uses CLI with alternative for after Creator update, tenforums method uses "msconfig".

And thank you for your help! there is a way to convert RAID to AHCI without reinstallation. what is this conversion method you mentioned?

Re: Dualbooting Mint, the installer shows no partitions available

What is the SATA mode? Dell have been shipping Intel machines with SATA in RAID mode on new machines for a while and Linux does not have Intel RAID driver. Please boot into Mint live session and run below command and post results to see if the drive is in RAID mode. Changing SATA mode from RAID to A...

Re: Failure to USB Boot for New SSD Clean Install

You can download the latest version of Ubuntu (19.04) with the 5 series kernel and see if you can boot with that. If that works, you can make another post asking how to upgrade the kernel while booting into Mint live USB/DVD. Also, have you updated the firmware to the latest f42d? https://www.gigaby...

Re: Failure to USB Boot for New SSD Clean Install

Looks like you cannot fully load Mint live session.Set firmware to legacy BIOS or UEFI with CSM or UEFI (disable UEFI secure boot if in UEFI mode). Legacy BIOS is simpler and will install with MBR partition table. UEFI will install with GPT partition table with more complexity but also more capable ...

She really made an impact. I thought she would be teaching for at least another ten years, and hoped my youngest daughter could have been blessed to take her classes. Alas it is not to be. Oh well she is in the afterlife having tea with the greats. Condolences on the loss of your friend and mentor.

Re: Can't install on HP Omen Laptop

Good, getting some progress. If not done already, disable UEFI secure boot and see if you can fully boot. If still not working, do the "nomodeset" boot parameter again from the GRUB menu, this should get you to boot fully into Mint. Then run Timeshift to set a restore point so you can roll back chan...

Re: Can't install on HP Omen Laptop

Ok, you cannot boot into Mint live session. Try adding "nomodeset" boot parameter: - Start, wait for GRUB menu and select advance option (No GRUB? Press and hold left 'Shift' key during startup). - Press the 'e' key - Use the arrow keys to go down to the line starting with 'linux' and add "nomodeset...

Hiyall, No doubt you'll be at least relieved if not pleased to know that I now have a dual-boot set up on T440p#2. Whilst the partitions are not exactly the size I envisaged it at least gives me something to work with and will suffice until I learn its benefits. My next hurdle is configuring a SHAR...

Re: Can't boot Windows 10 after installing Mint

Don't know how I missed the link to boot repair output. If Win10 was installed on /dev/sda which has MBR/MSDOS partition table, then Win10 was installed in legacy BIOS mode. MS locked legacy BIOS installation to MBR/MSDOS disks and UEFI installation to GPT disks. Edit: This MS requirement was fairl...
