Re: I'm confused why there are so many video editors? Which do you use?

I try all of them. The most promising ( and difficult) is Cinelerra, but for most video editing I use Vegas Video. Win7 in VB. Runs good with 16G of ram and i5.

Re: Back up in LM 20 Cinnamon

I am not afraid of Clonezilla. Kind of like it, but the problem with cloning is the source and destination size. If I am 1G off then will not work. I have 3 ssd 240G and all of them different size. Cloning from smaller one to larger - no problem. Partimage was good cloning tool, but unfortunately do...

Re: Making an iso image from an installed Mint system

Snapshot from debian distro, but I have no idea if you can install in Mint. MX Linux have that utility, but I have no idea how to get to Mint as is Ubuntu. I am still struggling with. Ubuntu(Mint) is fork of Debian, but we are lock down to Ubuntu repository. Good chance that I am wrong.

If you have Dell then F2 get you to bios options and F12 to boot options.When you see the blue bios progress bar, start punching the keys.

Re: I did something

Most of DVD media boot i Legay mode. Find out what F key get you to boot option. On Dell is F12 and hp F9(or8). When you get to boot option see if you can boot from DVD in Legacy or UEFI. Next step in a week(just kidding). If you have nVidia card, disable the on board video in BIOS.
