Re: need to exit grub to start mint

Antikythera, I'm embarrassed to say I read your last post several times, but I'm just not getting it. I peeked into the ISO folder on my memory stick, but I'm just really not sure what I'm looking for. Nor am I sure that's where I should be looking. Could you please elaborate? Thanks very much, Vinc...

Re: need to exit grub to start mint

Antikythera,
I have not tried to reinstall grub. What I have done is to build a whole new ISO/memory stick, and reinstall Mint 20 from scratch (after initial install). Unfortunately, this had no effect. As for as boot repair, could you walk me through that?
Thanks,
Vince

need to exit grub to start mint

All, Just finished installing Mint 20. As the title suggests, every time I turn on the computer, I'm presented a black screen with the following message: Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device o...

Re: SOLVED error after boot

Good morning all. Thought I'd check in before work. The last few posts have left me with questions. Antikythera says: What will happen now is that the system will try to keep 3 a minimum of versions of all kernel branches installed after updates (totalling 9) and PartsAbuser will end up back at squa...

Re: error after boot

Kadaitcha Man, So, after finishing my post and submitting it, I see you addressed a couple key points. In light of that, I think I'll follow your suggestion of a fresh install. I'll wait, though, until I've had the chance to verify everything is backed up. In the mean time, thank you for the help - ...

Re: error after boot

Kadaitcha Man, Before allowing me to install 4.15.0-111, I had to repair 2 broken packages. Once that was done, I had no trouble with the install. I also removed a few other kernels, leaving me with 3 installed. Having said that, I honestly don't know how Linux works, so I have no idea whether there...

Re: error after boot

Asinoro,
As suggested, I installed 4.15.0-111. Also as suggested, I have a total of 3 kernels installed.
Thank you so much for the help. It is much appreciated. Have a wonderful day.

Re: error after boot

Antikythera, I suppose I'd want Asinoro's input on that. He has spent an awful lot of time on this, and if we're making progress, I'd prefer to keep going. The main reason being, I backed up several important files a couple days ago and the process took forever. We're talking minutes to back up a co...

I'll clarify that while I'm posting, the 'online/offline' banner is missing for all members. It only reappears once I've hit the submit button...
Interesting.
