Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

I installed the Macrium Reflect PE recovery on the machine which when booted gives you the choice to boot W10 or 'something else'. If I want to use Linux I plug in the USB SSD then restart the PC then navigate the blue screen to mint (always shown as Ubuntu) Thanks Lert. Besides an imageCreator lik...

Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

You guys sound like naturals. Personally switched to linux after getting windows hacked & badly violated by criminals, could also have been an other os, but less likely with linux. I developed a security paranoia & practice a "Know your enemy" mentality...although i remain a small ...

Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

I apologize to all the spider/arachnid lovers, windows users, hackers and BillGates. Always suspect about Windows having secret wonderous twilight zone mind bending backdoor traps. Probably my personal imagination, sorry, let's get back to this coversation when ready.

Yes, I suppose running Linux within Windows is technically an option. I've not tried WSL myself, so I can't speak to it.

Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

Truth of the matter i really Hate windows & would love to avoid any inbreeding between systems, like putting a linux layer atop a windows(creepy arachnid ?). But am forced to use certain programs.

Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

Not to drive anyone from Mint, but you sound like a good candidate for Puppy Linux...for at least a month. You can use a USB drive and you have the opportunity to save changes. Can you please be more specific why ? I already know my way around the file system & some basic user commands for dimm...

Re: Newbie Partitions. Live in Linux but still need Windows .

1-Remember i want to have a easy wipe-able partition for experimental linux distros besides my everyday linuxMint so maybe i should have independent partitions ? Would be nice to have a sandbox as no question easy-no-frills-scrap-able section. Am not into virtual machines yet. 2-About having 2 separ...

Must install windows first ? Partition types differents, ext4=linux,ntfs, windows= ntfs-fat32 ? Need a clear simple plan ...

What is "Dual Boot"

Does dual boot mean running 2 live systems simultaneously -or- also having 2 os's installed on a disk even if only 1 is on & the other off ? I will sometimes still need windows & need only 1 os at a time, still call that dual boot or something else ? I don't mind re-starting my computer to s...
