Hi. Today was an update. Several updates. Maybe yesterday evening already but I installed them only today. Some 2's and one 4. I cannot remember what the 4 was.

Re: After install 18.3 can't boot Win10

Windoze 10 can be installed from a flash drive, it was how I did it back in the day. IIRC M$ has free utility to create a bootable Windoze stick. My process would be to install Windoze first, let it "customize" itself into updatedness (probably take you a couple of days for that :(). Once it is sta...

As bootrec /fixboot gives me an acces denied (I have BIOS boot, not EFI..maybe thats why) I guess I have to fix it the hard way and fix grub afterwards. I'll report back lat...

Re: After install 18.3 can't boot Win10

Oh crap. It's Win 10, I have no DVD Rom. Maybe I can do it from an USB Stick. I got the Key from early beta release back that time inlcuding a microsoft account. But even if I would have a DVD, I have no DVD Rom on my desktop. :( Thanks for the heads up. Then I don't know why tutorials don't show co...

Re: 18.3 cinnamon to xfce few questions

Ok thank you. If I would change to xfce 19 beta now. Will it be possible to go over to the stable release without reinstall again? Sounds like it is already pretty stable if the release is close. Better that way than switching to xcfe now and again to 19 soon again. And I'm impatient. :D Only thing ...

After install 18.3 can't boot Win10

Not urgent problem which is why I ask only now. But it bothers me as I still use the one or another program in Windows...well...I want to lol. I installed it that way: C: SSD with 2+ partitions. One for Windows 10 and later on installed 18.3 core/swap on that SSD in a separate partition. Home went i...

[solved] 18.3 cinnamon to xfce few questions

Re: All forums user should reset their password

Gosh...I use this password for many forums. Nothing with sensible informations I guess...but at least for forums. What you guys would say? 11 characters, uper/lower case, numbers and special characters (like !#?§ and so on). I would guess it takes up to a couple of yers to brute force just one of su...
