Re: Mint does not display username at start

Re: Mint does not display username at start

Ok I verified the ISO for Min 18.3, 18.22 and 18.

Please find in the attach...

Re: Mint does not display username at start

@Cosmo and JerryF I really installed Mint on hhd. In fact, I can boot without USB key. The install process is quick, sure, and it requires some steps: partitioning, select region, define user, etc. THen it take about 5 minutes to make the partion, format and install. And I checked the /home hon hhd ...

Re: Mint does not display username at start

Well, the install process is quite quick, but it did not create my user. In Home folder I can see a /mint folder, but no user with that name will appear at the login. Then you looked at the wrong place. The user mint belongs to the life system, the installation gets stored on the hard drive. I mean...

Re: Mint does not display username at start

An update: I tryed with Ubuntu and it works. But I would prefer mint, if possible :-) So maybe is there a way to manually create a user from a console at the boot, or something like that?

DUring the install, an error occurs: it says somenthing like "error in apt configuration". It shouldn't have anything to do with users

Re: Mint does not display username at start

Ok I'll try again a fresh install. This time I will try to encript my /home. In any case, after the install, I have to run boot-repair from USB and install grub on a 512MB EFI partition I created when I partitioned the HD. This is the only way I found to boot the computer, as the hard disk is like a...

Re: Mint does not display username at start

Update: if I login with the USB key, I can see that in the home folder on the hhd (not in the usb) there is not the folder of the user I supposed to have created in the installation. So I'll try to create a user in recovery mode or somenthing like that. In the meanwhile, if anybody has any ideas, is...

Re: Mint doesn't boot on Lenovo Yoga 300

Hi all, Thanx everybody for your support. I managed to fix the problem by looking at your links. Following I repeat what I have done (maybe I am not very accurate in writing it but I hope it will be clear enough): 1) I set the Bios on UEFI and booted from USB key Mint 18.3 64 bit 2) During Mint inst...
