Re: Use Windows occasionally on Mint Sylvia laptop

Excellent information. Thank you all. I don't care how clunky it is if I can backup my iPhone (5s) with Itunes or other occasional needs. I am still looking for a Linux app to do that.

Re: Use Windows occasionally on Mint Sylvia laptop

Intel 2 core 2.0 ghz T6400. 64 bit.
I am also having trouble getting Wine to work. I am going to try to set up Virtual Box for Win 32 bit.
Thank you again.

Re: Virtual box on Intel 64 bit laptop only shows 32 bit VM options

BTW, a friend of mine Don Pedro (?) Collie. Probably wrong. ....played the big black guy in THX 1138.
The T6400 does not have VT.
I just need to do a few occasional things with Win. till I find my way around in Mint. Vbox is offering to install Win 10 32 Bit. Can I do that?

Re: Virtual box on Intel 64 bit laptop only shows 32 bit VM options

I will need to look it up. My memory is older than the laptop. Well after 2004 tho. Thank you for the time, attention, and knowledge.

Re: How to mount drive from crashed Win 10

Thank you very much.

Clarify "unsaved data", as if I was working and had a file open that I had edited but not saved, or do you mean any data on the disk that I have not yet recovered?

It flashes for a fraction of a second over the lower part of the screen; about 2/3s to the top for the full width, sometimes randomly and other times when scrolling or typing, like now. It happens when using Chrome. AMD 64 Bi...
