Slow at loading initially

Hi

Just installed Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon from fresh, but after logging in it seems to take 30 secs to show the desktop. It is a while on a black screen with just the cursor showing. It did not take this long on 18.3.

Any other people had this?
Thanks

Linux Mint 19 "Tara" - New ISOs

Where are they downloaded from, I thought they were renamed and had V2 on it.
On the website they are still showing the old ones.

Show desktop button

Is there any way to move this to the bottom right hand corner, like it is on windows? I was able to do it in Cinnamon but it gets stuck in Mate next to where all of the connection details are.

Re: Cannot write grub to /target

Seems to be the same error I was getting.
Try what gm10 suggested to me.
Install without Internet connection so you won't receive that update, see viewtopic.php?f=90&t=273058

I think you misunderstood him, his commands were for booting into the Linux Mint you had already installed. Your screenshot shows you were doing another clean install instead. I'm not sure from that screenshot at what stage the installer failed though.
Yeah yeah so I did :lol:

Popping noise when starting up and shutting down

Whenever I start up or shut down the machine, it makes a loud popping sound I'm running Linux Mint 18.3, however it seems to do it with all distros.
Is there any way of stopping it.
I have a OMEN pc.
Thanks
