dual boot image on new computer only boots in recovery mode

I had a dual boot laptop with a 1 TB HDD. I used clonezilla to make an image of the whole drive (7 partitions) before sending the laptop to the manufacturer for warranty work. The laptop was never seen again. I now have a laptop with a new Win10 on a 256GB SSD and the image from the other dual boot ...

login needs forgotten password, encrypted drive w/external encrypted drive

Looked around. This is THE bleak situation it seems. If your suggestion is to wipe everything and start over, I don't need help losing data. I would like to recover the external drive using the original unchanged password (I know) on another device I CAN access, and just brute force everything else ...

Re: LM often doesn't boot on my MBM2 Pro

The SD Card is installed and active. Using shutdown 130 has been booting, except it is not hibernate. Starting to check overnight shutdown using GUI methods.

I had no success with the bios change disabling SD card in mintbox mini 2 pro. Suspend works fine. You just have to shut it down all the way by unplugging it or holding the power button until it shuts all the way off or it will not reboot from terminal:/shutdown now, logoff GUI + shutdown GUI, or me...

Re: Wi Fi not working on new install- Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

I had the same problem. It was probably lack of sleep. I logged into the router and found that while I had repeatedly verified that I had all the settings where I wanted them, somewhere along the way I turned off the wireless radio and also repeatedly neglected to select the "Apply" button, off scre...

Re: [SOLVED] dmesg output question

Laughing for a good while on that one. I see that kernel building is a distant prospect for me. Thank you again.

Referring to The size of the log files in /var/log gets out of hand to clear out about 20GB of repeating errors.
