Re: Live Disc wont Run

How exactly should i do the nomodeset thing. the way i did it was, at the menu select compatibility mode, press tab to edit, then type nomodeset then hit enter. Sounds right, at the Grub menu you did not have to select compatibility - just press tab, towards the bottom of the screen there is a line...

Re: Live Disc wont Run

One expedient might be to swap out the video card (you *do* have a couple of spare ones in a cupboard, right?) No, if i had another card it would be older than this one :lol: You have of course by now spent many happy hours searching these forums and the wider web on problems to do with your curren...

Re: Remove Dual Boot Menu

Which version of grub is installed, the Mint version or the Debian one? If mint then all you should need to do is delete the Debian installation and run sudo update-grub as grub2 autodetects installed OSes. If you need to reinstall the mint grub see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstall...
