Re: Is this really meant to be installed?

I guess I should just stick with Windows. At least it installs.
LM 19 refuses to install.

Re: Is this really meant to be installed?

This should be a simple install. Drive is wiped and LM should install. Nope. It hangs at third party installation. The one time it got past that, it hung at wipe the drive and install with a low disk warning...WITH A 1 TB WIPED drive. Something has changed. It seems that it no longer wants to be ins...

Re: Is this really meant to be installed?

This laptop is 100% dedicated to linux.
It was running v 18 without issues. I now regret trying to "upgrade" to v 19.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. It wasn't broke. I just wanted to have the latest version of LM. Bad move on my part.
I can't install LM 19.1 on this thing.

Is this really meant to be installed?

I cannot get 19.1 installed on my HP laptop that previously had v 18 on it. I made a bootable Gparted USB and wiped the drive. I made a bootable USB for the 19.1 Cinnamon version. I get to install third party software and it just hangs forever. Since I've tried this at least a dozen times, when it d...

Install of 19.1 is a bust

I made a boot USB for Gparted and wiped the drive of my laptop. I made a boot USB for installation of 19.1 Cinnamon version. I finally got past the boot menu for adding third party software. Now, I'm stuck at the window for installation type after telling it to Erase Software and Install Linux Mint....

Re: Solution: Installation hangs/freezes/stuck "Preparing to install Linux Mint" third-party software screen

I am attempting to install 19.1 Cinnamon on an HP laptop that I previously had version 18 Cinnamon on. I bought this laptop specifically to test Linux vs Windows to see if I can make the switch on my other computers so it's somewhat of a toy. I made a bootable Gparted USB and wiped the drive. I then...

Wireless range is crap.

I purchased an HP laptop and installed Mint Cinnamon 18.3 to see if I could eventually cut the cord with Windows. The wireless coverage is pathetic. Even when my laptop is 2m from the router, it shows a 50% coverage. If I take it out of the room, there is no coverage. All of my other devices have no...
