Clarification:
I have a Windows 10 Desktop with a drive I would like to share to my LMDE Cinnamon Desktop (two separate boxes). I am unable to make this happen.

Re: Dual-boot Windows with Linux, Linux preinstalled

The above method should work, but in general Windows prefers to be installed first, then Linux. Makes the entire process easier.

SOLVED: I ended up going to chrome://flags and ensured Chrome App Launcher was enabled and then searched for the shortcut on LMDE and then pinned it to my panel.

Try using a different kernel. Sometimes that can make a difference.

SOLVED: Google Chrome App Launcher

Has anyone been able to get the Google Chrome App Launcher (http://chrome-app-launcher.en.softonic.com/) to work on LMDE?

I have it working on LM17.1. :!:

:x
Update:
I was able to get Windows 8.1 to launch through Grub by running bootrec /fix mbr and the other associated options. All is good. :)

Re: Dual Boot LMDE / Win 8.1 Pro error

Tried the Repair Boot Disk as mentioned above.... didn't work, now I can't boot into Windows 8.1, currently Windows is "Attempting to Repair", "this could take several hours".

Perhaps I should make the Windows 8.1 bootloader the default and not use Grub? Thoughts?

The only way I can boot into Windows is to "F12" to enter BIOS boot options and boot from the HDD that contains Windows. I can however boot ...

Re: LMDE update / repository problem?

I've decided to just reinstall LMDE. Turns out it is easier than trying to figure out all of the issues I was having. Lesson learned = don't wait so long to run the updates.

Thank you, to those who have attempted to resolve the issues I was having.

Re: LMDE update / repository problem?

ran:
apt update && apt dist-upgrade && apt install -f

as root. No change.

I still receive "the following packages have been kept back: libatril mate-netspeed"

Definitely believe it may still be a dependency error somewhere.

applied the above method with some success and some hiccups... The rename worked and many updates took affect, the problem is I ended up with an Xorg error. Not usually a big problem, I usually (if this occurs) just reinstall my NVIDIA driver and all is good. Not this time though when I go to instal...
