Reminds me of one of my favorite Windows pranks back in the NT days - the good, old BSOD screensaver.
Lol, but this one was a real deal, no prank there no.

Re: Dual boot resulting in going directly to Mint on startup

Another thing I would try is going into BIOS and as the boot option choose Windows Boot Manager to boot from to see if it really does boot up or is it in fact something wrong with Windows Boot Manager.

Re: Bootloader installation problems - Mint 19.1 XFCE

Hi joga, I'm sorry about this: When I selected the 512 MB partition and clicked on 'change', the 'Use As' drop down menu would only let me choose 'EFI System Partition' as a name and would not allow me to choose a mount point at all. That option never appeared I misrememberd the options available fo...

You can do that later on by going to /boot/efi and deleting Microsoft's folder.

I don't know, objectively, if Purism's Librem 5 is going to have legs. I hope it will, but I don't know that it will.
Let's hope it'll get some! It surely looks like a worthy endeavor.

I used to be on social media, I had a number of message board accounts, I had a CafePress shop, and so on. Now pretty much all that's left is this account, my banking and health and other financial organizational sites, and that's it. Once I eventually (not any time soon, unfortunately) walk away f...

Re: resizing mint (root) partition

Are you running off the live usb? If not you should. You cannot perform partition operations, when they are in use.Your ext4 partition (/dev/ada5) is shown as mounted in the picture (the key icon).

Re: resizing mint (root) partition

When you have deleted the partitions to the left, then right click on the partition you want to resize choose resize/move and in the next window grab the handle on the left and move all the way to the left to fill all that un-allocated space. Next apply the change from the tool bar. Make sure not to...
