Re: [SOLVED] System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

This command MIGHT get you the info you need lspci | grep Network No dice. Going to put this project on hold for the time being, actually - one of the pegs on the magnets that hold the tablet to the dock snapped during normal use as I was working on it, so I'm returning it. :lol: Funny end to a fru...

Failed to detect network card (Acer Switch 10 S1003)

The one last thing I can't seem to get working after a long struggle to install Mint on this thing. There is definitely a network card in there and it worked in Windows before I installed Mint. (Windows has already been wiped from the system though). Any way around this? I would strongly prefer not ...

Re: System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

And... SUCCESS! So here is a summary of what I had to do, for anyone else stuck with this stubborn system: - Make the Mint 19 install drive using Rufus. At first I tried it by using the "make bootable USB drive" right click option on my other Mint machine, but this made the drive read only, which is...

Re: System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

On a laptop that wasnt able to wifi I connected my mobile phone via a usb cable and told the phone to let the computer use the internet, that might be worth trying. Bill Thought of that, but I believe I'd have to pay extra for tethering on my phone plan. I know there are third party apps to work ar...

Re: System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

@ mosritemecha, ....... . . Sorry, I can't be of any further help. Likely, you need the USB-Ethernet adapter or USB Wifi adapter to get online and apply the above fix. Try and research more into your specific internal Broadcom Wifi adapter card model and its proprietary driver. That's okay, I appre...

Re: System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

Thank you for the reply. However these links don't quite apply to my situation. These are all assuming you have actually installed Linux but just can't get it to boot. Presumably, these users all installed Mint from Windows (like I did with Android) but then weren't able to boot it. I don't have the...

Re: System will not recognize bootable USB drive with Mint ISO

Something possibly like progress? I used the installer from an Android drive to wipe the SSD again, so now it goes to boot menu automatically. It still won't recognize the USB drive as a boot option exactly, but I do get the the Mint files showing up on the drive under "Boot From File." I can open i...

Duplicate monitors on multi-screen setup without mirroriing all?

Hey guys, I have a 3 monitor setup (well, two monitors and a TV) and the way I had it set up in Windows was to duplicate my main monitor on the TV (3rd screen) while using 1 and 2 as a multi-monitor desktop. The default setting options in Mint only seem to give me the option of mirroring the display...
