How do I install a tar.gz file?

Hello, due to a new government bureocracy I'm forced to scan my ID card with a chip in order to access my official documents. In order to do that, I need to install a certain app for the ID card scanner. I've downloaded it but it's something ending in tar.gz. Please could you explain in an EXTREMELY...

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

I did steps above. BIOS file can't be read. It's unknown and in the old bios menu there is an icon of a lock when I try to install the new one. What's more, I've blocked 2 flash disks which now became "read only" and reformating them in USB formating app doesn't work, either. EDIT: after several res...

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

Thank you so much! It's so difficult when one has no idea WHAT to search for! Omg I hope it will work.
... It sounds pretty easy in this step by step manual. Similar to installing Linux. I will try this when I get home.

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

OK, I'll do it tomorrow. It's late here now and someone is sleeping in the room where the very long and complicated password to WiFi is, so I can't get on Internet from that computer in order to copy paste on this forum. And I'm tired and this will take a loong time anyway. Thank you so much for you...

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

There might be a BIOS/compatibility problem if the device is not seen as bootable. I'd get a regular 2.5" SSD and check that the BIOS recognizes it before installing an OS. My Samsung laptop does not boot SSDs as 2nd HD, so update the BIOS too if you can. OK so I'll go back to my disc and google a ...

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

That's probably a problem...
But I don't understand because when I go to Advanced options, - SATA config- it is listed there as samsung Evo and serial number is shown, too. Device type: hard disk. ATA port 0. So it has to see it. But then why it doesn't allow to be booted?

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

I didn't know that it was this small when I ordered it. I thought it was a normal SSD. I contacted the store that i want to send it back because it's not what i expected and they sent me this adapter and told me it would work with it

Re: BIOS doesn't show mSATA with Mint

I'm sorry but I don't really understand what you're saying.
there's no option for UEFI in the bios.
What exactly do I need to look up in the manual?

Do I need to update my BIOS? How exactly do I do it? I still have my old disc that is working.
