Re: Which Mirror to use

Simply, yes, you want to chose the best mirror, and if you click on "Yes" you will get a list of them. Conveniently, the Software Sources program will show you the fastest ones.

Re: Grub does not see Mint disk

Good job. That is really a strange Boot Info Report. I have seen a lot of them but I have never seen one like that. You have 2 grub.cfg files, and one is generated by something called "Grub2Win". Any idea where that came from? Your ordinary grub.cfg file on sdb1 is correct, and lists Mint ...

Re: Grub does not see Mint disk

Let me take a closer look. Boot into Mint and run the Boot Info Script
Install boot-info-script:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install boot-info-script

Then run the script:

Code: Select all

sudo bootinfoscript --stdout | pastebin

Post the resulting URL link that displays in the terminal.

Re: cant boot into windows 10 after installation of LINUX mint

Thank you. That tells me that Windows is not installed in UEFI mode - so you can disregard my previous post about UEFI.
The first thing to try is to boot into the installed Mint, open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and update Grub

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub

See if that puts Windows on the Grub menu.

You seem to have no problem with complicated instructions, so I will give you a new set of somewhat complicated instructions... :mrgreen: When you boot your hard drive, and see the grub menu press c (for command line) That will give you the grub command prompt, which looks like this grub> Enter thes...

Re: cant boot into windows 10 after installation of LINUX mint

That covers the second command. We still need the first command: (live or installed Mint, either one)

Code: Select all

sudo parted -l

Re: cant boot into windows 10 after installation of LINUX mint

It is possible that you accidentally installed in Legacy/CSM mode instead of installing in UEFI mode. In that case you would have to re-install.

Did you have the Mint .iso file in a folder named /boot-isos ?

Re: Grub does not see Mint disk

I don't have any first hand experience with boot-repair, sorry. I have never needed it. You can re-install Grub without the cow getting in the way. Boot your live Mint and open a terminal. Mount the root partition at /mnt: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt Enter all these commands: for i in /dev /dev/pts /p...

As Flemur said, re-installing is a lot easier than anything else. That is actually what I assumed you were going to do.

Re: int 18.1 can't mount my second internal hard drive

Do you have Windows? You need Windows to run chkdsk /f You could try to create a mount point and mount the partition via fstab. To automount a NTFS partition : Make a mount point (folder) named WIN. I like to make my mount point in my /home, but you can make it anywhere you like and you can name it ...
