Re: How to boot Mint in BIOS mode?

When using Rufus, I get the same warning as before, but said warning disappears and allows me to continue if I don't choose to force it. Would this just mean an installation without Debian elements, and is this a safe option to choose?

@administrollaatori

Not that I'm aware of. I made the image on Windows 10, using the win32 disk imager software. Also, the service you suggested only supports up to mint 17.2.

Re: How to boot Mint in BIOS mode?

@deepakdeshp Interesting, but I have the opposite issue and my bios doesn't give me an obvious way to boot the USB in legacy mode.

Re: How to boot Mint in BIOS mode?

I never make it that far though. I only check the box to install third party software and I get a message basically saying that going any further in the installation may make Windows unusable. Are you saying that I'd be fine to continue?

Re: Verification on Windows 10 issues

So are you saying that a download off of the main Mint website is relatively safe? Because every source I can find is telling me to independently verify the ISO.
