Re: Dual boot problems with Windows 10/ Mint 18.1

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

So, if I am reading you this is definitely an issue with Windows doing its dance of inconvenience, and your machine behaves itself when running LMDE. Okay, that's cool. If it isn't obvious, I'm more of a hardware-oriented troubleshooter. Hi Dngrsone, Thanks for the interest. :) Yeah for now I'd go ...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

Welcome to the site, willim. Your machine rebooted itself for no reason while in LMDE? How often does this happen? Are you using it at the time or does it happen when you are not looking? I am wondering if perhaps you have a hardware issue that is causing your problem. Hi Dngrsome Thanks for the re...
