Re: [SOLVED] Intel NUC D54250WYK after install black screen with flashing cursor

I did not realize you have a single-channel memory (i.e. only one of two memory slots occupied), I guess this article might be of interest:

Dual-channel vs. Single-channel, does it matter?

Re: Intel NUC D54250WYK after install black screen with flashing cursor

What I would do:

- disconnect PSU, open NUC case, remove and carefully insert again the RAM modules
- try to install Mint 19.1
- if the problem persists, try to install Mint 18.3, see if this works

Re: Mac OS in linux mint

Good news: technically it is possible, a relatively easy thing to do

Bad news: that would be a direct violation of Apple EULA, so I would not expect it to be a welcome topic on the forum

Re: I'm out of patience.

Linux Mint is draining my patience. I am considering going back to windows... It may be so, but did you ever consider getting the best of both worlds? I can't see why you can only apply logic OR here (choose either Linux OR Windows), when you can also apply logic AND instead (use both Linux AND Win...

Re: Isn't "newbie" a warning to new users?

I guess the OP would be happy with Apple Macintosh+macOS, platform which more or less combines the convenience/comfort of Windows and stability/robustness of Unix (as it's based on FreeBSD). However, there would be a considerable downside too, such as insane prices, finding some of the important tra...

Re: wine on 19.1

Among other possible solutions, you may wish to consider using Windows in VM (Virtual Machine in VirtualBox), it works a lot better than wine.

Re: Resizing partition, creating 2 additional small partitions for testing, learning to do multi-boot properly

Maybe I need to post it under "Mint ideas and suggestions" - I guess it would make sense to add Boot Order Management in some form to Administration menu, similar to boot order selector on macOS system preferences (like a GUI utility capable of detecting bootable drives in the system and allowing us...

You could try that. There is a setting for reinstalling grub as well. I think it is toggled on by default but you can check that yourself to make sure. Hope that it will resolve the issue.
The way I see it, it's not the issue per se, more like a great fun! :D

Re: Resizing partition, creating 2 additional small partitions for testing, learning to do multi-boot properly

What is supposed to happen if I use the Timeshift for restoration now - i.e. can I expect it to restore the initial Mint control over GRUB/boot properly? (this may, or may not be related: the last snapshot was created prior to me re-sizing the main partition and creating two smaller ones for testing...

Re: Resizing partition, creating 2 additional small partitions for testing, learning to do multi-boot properly

If it doesn't bother you to boot into Mint via MX' grub menu, I would leave it as is... Thank you, I will probably do just that, for the time being ... however, at some point I intend to replace MX Linux with some other distro for testing, then what would be the best strategy, is there something th...

Re: Resizing partition, creating 2 additional small partitions for testing, learning to do multi-boot properly

Installed with default option (with tick in the box and ESP), everything seems ok (Mint 19.1 is present in the boot menu). What's next, now if I boot Mint 19.1 and use sudo update-grub , it will reverse the boot order, i.e. Mint will go to the first place, and MX Linux will go to second place? (not ...

Thank you philotux, one more question please: in MX Linux installation, step 4.
