Re: LMDE Boot Issues: Debbie fails but Buster works...what gives?

It did not actually, sorry I didn't make it clear in my response. The same blinking cursor on black blank screen. I am going to read up your instructions on grub and USB and find out where I am going wrong. While at it, I will also try and do the simple MBR approach to installation of LMDE4 (on this...

Re: LMDE Boot Issues: Debbie fails but Buster works...what gives?

:D 45ID was the media server MOBO marketed by Intel, and proc was the cheapest that allowed virtualization, in those days. The first PC (DG33FB Mobo) that started this post, also has UEFI and now running Debian 10 on MBR. mint@mint:~$ ls /sys/firmware acpi dmi efi memmap mint@mint:~$ I ran bootrepai...

Re: LMDE Boot Issues: Debbie fails but Buster works...what gives?

@pbear I am repurposing my old home server. I had a go again on this hardware. It failed to come up with "No boot device". Didn't bother to check with Buster. Tried again after converting 500GB HDD to GPT and manual partitioning to /root, /home, Swap, /tmp, /var, /boot-efi. LMDE4 came up with a blin...

Re: Windows 10 and Samba File Share (need latest Update)

Sorry for the late response, have been working on the Mate64 to get most of the desired software up and running. Struggling a bit with MS Office and other MS programs routinely used by family (were good on Bionic). I have removed all the rules from uFW and put in just one rule to allow all "incoming...
