Re: Unable to boot 18.3 Sylvia from USB

Well it looks like Mint 18.3 doesn't like my adapter or GPU.

I even tried booting to a new HDD after formatting my Windows partition.

It worked on previous editions. Guess I will use Ubuntu instead.

Thanks for all the assistance.

Re: Unable to boot 18.3 Sylvia from USB

Thanks for the prompt response. I managed to verify the SHA256 sum and it's all good. The USB boots to load up screen where I choose between 'Install', try, or in compatibility mode, etc. This is where it goes pear-shaped. It is definitely a video problem as Mint continues to load and I get the soun...

Re: Unable to boot 18.3 Sylvia from USB

Thanks deepakdeshp, but it did not help, I have tried that also so tried it again. The version I am trying to use is 18.3 Sylvia 64 Bit. The example in that link is for 17.3 and there is a difference. There is no MD5.txt for ver 18.3 and no matter how many times I tried, the SHA256.txt file doesn't ...

Unable to boot 18.3 Sylvia from USB

At present, I am running Win 10 Pro 64 bit on an i7 6700 CPU and GTX970 GPU. I was thinking of trying to dual boot Windows and Linux again so I started with the basics of running it from a USB, well I can't even do that. I can find the UEFI USB when I boot and I can make a selection from 'Install', ...

Re: Solve boot problems with AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards

Thanks for the help in advance. I have a similar problem. I am trying to give 18.3 a trial alongside of win 10. I manage to UEFI boot from the thumb drive. I get the options and followed the instructions at the start of this thread. I chose compatibility mode and held down the 'Left Shift' key. All ...

Re: Programming/Coding/Scripting

Thank you very, very much. Since I have tested the waters and am happy with the result I will ask a couple more questions. Drivers. Is there a need for me to find drivers for all my equipment. My laptop is an ASUS K53SJ and I notice that the mouse skips across the page and and find it hard to get it...

Programming/Coding/Scripting

I have been playing around with computers since APC's first issue 30 years ago or so. Back then I used to right simple programs in basic and occasionally hex. Then during my time in the military I did a little bumbling around with an old Unix Morse Code trainer. Since then I got out of that scene an...
