Re: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB external not detected

I was just using it temporarily for rEFInd.
Thanks, those commands worked but it's now saying it can't mount the device.

Re: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB external not detected

Hi I'm having the same problem. It worked alright until I put Live EFI boot loader on, to use on another computer. Since then I can only load EFI boot loader with it and in GParted it just shows up as unreadable.

Hi Lauren

Sorted. Upgraded to Mint 18.2
Reloaded rEFInd didn't work first time but reloaded again as instructed and installed in fallback mode and worked!

Thanks for all your time and work in helping me and in producing this software.

From the Live EFI Boot Disk generate the bisnext online summary. Check you have access to Internet then double click the launcher icon on the desktop. When done only provide the link indicated first line of the summary, don't copy paste the entire summary to the forum, the summary is too large. Ooo...

So Legacy boot doesn't work as expected.
Whats the difference between your 2 iso images for the efi boot disks?

Disable UEFI in the bios settings and/or enable Legacy boot only. Then from the live desktop check the active boot mode from a terminal, copy paste the following command: [ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "EFI mode" || echo "Legacy Bios mode" There isn;t a UEFI setting to disable in any of the menu'...

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S205 failed to open /efi/boot/grubx64.efi not found

Having said I have disabled the secure boot I'm not sure if I can. Under the 'Security' option 'Set Hard Disk Passowrd' is frozen and cannot be selected or changed. Is that the secure boot then?

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S205 failed to open /efi/boot/grubx64.efi not found

Mint was installed in UEFI mode and the computer EFI firware is probably buggy. Did you disable Secure boot in the bios settings ? You may reinstall in Legacy mode if the bios support Legacy boot, that's proabably the best alternative. Or keep this UEFI mode installation and use my Live EFI boot Di...
