I don't have a UEFI bios computer, but I am considering upgrading to a new one in the future and would like to know how to setup Linux Mint with secure boot enabled. I found this guide for Mint to add the EFI key. https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2061 I don't want to do full disk encryp...

Re: Bootloader Problems On New SSD HD With ONLY LM19

I obviously don't have an EFI partition because, as I stated, I am on a legacy bios. I do have a Dell partition with the flag diag on sda1. My first,sda, internal, spinning hard drive, has Windows 7 on it . My secondary, New SSD drive has Linux Mint 18.2 on it, sdb. sdb1 is where the linux boot part...

Re: Bootloader Problems On New SSD HD With ONLY LM19

Creating a separate boot partition solved it for me also. However, we should not have to do this in the current versions of Mint. You are on a Dell with UEFI bios and I am on an older Dell Inspiron 570 with legacy bios. Does anyone have any clues why this was necessary for both of us to get Mint 19....

Re: Update Manager not appearing even after info upgrade to 1.1.4

If the Update Manager was installed properly, it will appear as an entry in the Administration menu, at least on Linux Mint Mate.It should also show up in the Control Center under Administration.

Re: 19.2 BootFAIL=BusyBox/initramfs(used install defaults)

If it is a uefi bios, it sounds like you did not disable secure boot in the bios setup before you tried to install Linux. If I am not mistaken, it is also recommended to disable the fastboot option in the bios.

I just recently installed Linux Mint Mate 19.2 on an old, Dell Inspiron 570 desktop with an AMD Athlon II X3 435, Integrated HD4000 graphics and 4 gb of ram. I have an 8gb swap partition on it and I have never even seen it use swap with my normal use which is Firefox with many tabs open and vlc to v...

Re: Bootloader Problems On New SSD HD With ONLY LM19

A few weeks ago I installed Linux Mint Mate 19.1 to a new ssd. Upon rebooting it would always boot to the grub rescue menu and not the Linux logon screen. I solved it by opening gparted, booted with my usb bootable live persistent usb stick. First I deleted the whole drive. I created a small, ext4, ...

Hi, yes I use "Something Else" for set the partitions...

Re: Running Mint from USB pendrive, losing settings on reboot

1 1/2 to 2 years ago I created a persistent USB drive on a 32gb drive with the Universal USB installer in Windows. The trick is to choose NTFS as the format so a large, persistent drive can be created, instead of fat32. If you use the fat32 option, you are limited in the size of the persistent parti...

Re: LAN Share does not connect to other PCs in Linux Mint 19.2

I made it easier on my self since my last post. Try system-config-samba, it works well now if you jump through a few hoops, initally. Read the comments for it in the software manager area. Once you enter the initial commands properly, it will launch with no problems on subsequent reboots.

Re: LAN Share does not connect to other PCs in Linux Mint 19.2

Thanks for your kind answers. As an average user, I'm not very prone to use Samba. As per my own experience, It has to be configured thoroughly and sometimes it stops working. I tried LAN Share and NitroShare, but surprisingly it didn't work. Then, I just tried Transfer On Lan and it works. Althoug...

Re: LAN Share does not connect to other PCs in Linux Mint 19.2

I'm quite happy with Linux Mint 19.2; It's a superbly made OS and it works like a charm since the very first day of its launch. However, LAN Share does not connect to other PCs in our LAN (also using LAN Share, obviously). It didn't happen to me until now with other OS like Ubuntu, Kubuntu or Ubunt...

I connected a SATA SSD with a SATA to USB adapter to my desktop computer and installed Linux Mint Mate 19.1 on it. If I now move the drive internally and select it to boot in the bios, will it boot ok now on the internal SATA port or does the grub bootloader need to be changed or Linux reinstalled ...
