Re: Mint 17.3 64 (Cin) and Bitlocker (HW) encryption issue

Hi,

No I never found a solution for it, other than disabling bitlocker, which is undesirable.
I was thinking that the hardware encryption was causing it, but even after removing it it still gave me the same errors. Yes, it might be SSD/M.2-SSD related.

Re: Mint 17.3 64 (Cin) and Bitlocker (HW) encryption issue

I still haven't found any solution and the above problem causes Bitlocker drives to 'think' I've entered an invalid pin-code too many times to unlock the partitions. Obviously this is the result of the probing. To avoid having to go through entering the lengthy "recovery key" every time I need to bo...

Re: Unusual Login problem 17.3 cinnamon

This sounds a little like the problem with the Live CD/DVD/USB on some nVidia systems. Can you login on the terminal at all? When booting from a Live Media version, do you get the graphical login prompt with at the top right "Linux Mint user will automatically login in 10 seconds" (Or something that...

Re: New laptop compatibility

For full functionality with the Skylake processor, you'll want to install the 4.3 kernel. http://www.yourownlinux.com/2015/09/how-to-install-linux-kernel-4-3-rc1-in-linux.html Personally I'm not very fond of RC kernels. That's the RC1, there are release versions out as well. I think it might be bet...

Re: New laptop compatibility

Hi, Expect difficulties! I have a very similar laptop (Clevo). It's certainly not quite 100% compatible yet. I used 17.3-64 Cinnamon for mine. The 6th gen intel with dual graphics isn't fully supported (search for i915 issues) yet, so it is going to give some headaches. Mine runs on the nVidia GPU w...

Re: New Dell XPS 15 with Skylake Install Mishap with Hard dr

Hi, I'm not really sure if this helps, but I have been through some problems with m2.sata myself (different laptop, but Skylake as well). Things to try (may or may not help): - Boot Mint from USB (in legacy mode, apparently) and use hdparm to secure erase the SSD. (See procedure below, if unknown. T...

Mint 17.3 64 (Cin) and Bitlocker (HW) encryption issue

Hi, TL;DR: ata1.00: failed command: READ DMA because of hardware encryption of a Bitlocker partition on Samsung EVO 850 SSDs. Long version: I have a new laptop which I tested dual-booting Win 10 and Mint 17.3-64 (Cinnamon) first before enabling hardware encryption on my disks (both Samsung EVO 850 S...

Re: boot-repair

I faced a similar problem with my dual-boot system after Windows 10 upgraded itself to version 1511 (build 10586). Apparently it changes something in the EFI partition and I was unable to boot into my Mint 17.3 (Cinnamon). The ubuntu entries simply booted windows (I'm not proficient enough with EFI ...
