Re: Lost GRUB2 after HP updates inside Windows

Yes, I realize you wrote the post and credits go to JeremyB . Also I changed things, that I changed, to reflect the distro I'm using. Two efi boot partitions was unexpected. I had recently installed Mint20, which installed as ext2 without any flags, and worked flawlessly. But when I went back to LMD...

Re: Lost GRUB2 after HP updates inside Windows

Never seen a Fat32 boot partition, much less one flagged boot/esp. I too was surprised that the LMDE4 installer chose Fat32 for /boot, after I tried multiple times for an ext2 partition with no flags. It continued to complain until I settled for what you see in the screenshot. The scheme was workin...

'chroot' to the root directory on your disk and run 'apt reinstall grub-efi'.
Question:
Mind you, /boot has it's own partition, and is installed there, so....
Shouldn't that be /boot (/dev/sda8) instead of /root (/dev/sda10), to reinstall grub-efi, because the GRUB bootloader resides in /dev/sda8?

Re: Lost GRUB2 after HP updates inside Windows

One thing I forgot was, one of the updates was a BIOS update from v.44 to v.45, and the other a graphics driver update.

Lost GRUB2 after HP updates inside Windows

Lost the ability to dual boot using GRUB. Windows bootloader now manages all aspects of boot, with NO mentiion of GRUB or anything Linux Debian. All has been running as it should, GRUB managing all aspects of the boot process, with GRUB Customizer installed and set to "boot from last". The...

Re: There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon...

I think the whole install is somehow corrupted, because it no longer boots into Mint, but W10 still boots. Once it starts to boot from GRUB, it goes to "HP" logo, then to "LM" logo, and finally to "BusyBox". How do I get past this? https://i.postimg.cc/sBgCd8nR/Busy-Box...

Re: LMDE4 freezes from time to time

Would a kernel update to 5.4 or 5.5 perhaps improve the stability, and eliminate the freezes?
I'm currently at 4.19, I think, whatever came stock in the ".iso".

Re: LMDE4 freezes from time to time

My LMDE4 is basically stock, with a few things added. It did this when running in the "Live" mode from the USB stick, before the install. I thought this would stop once it was installed, but this has not been the case.... It still happens from time to time. Sometimes with FFx running, some...

Re: Lmde install alongside Windows 10

I took a little different route with the partitioning scheme. W10 and LMDE have their own boot partitions, you just specify which boot loader will be your default. Choose W10's boot loader and W10 will be the default OS with LMDE the 2nd choice. Choose LMDE's boot loader and LMDE is the default OS, ...
