Hello kaschy Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

Boot up the Mint installation media, mount your Linux partition to /mnt and paste back ls -lh /mnt/boot|egrep 'init|vmlin'

If you don't know how to mount the partition, paste back sudo blkid

Re: Conky: .conkyrc VS conky.conf ... I'm confused

I really doesn't matter because you start conky with the script file e.g., conky --config=/home/bill/.conkyrc1

Re: Cannot Move Home Directory

Well, there ya go - it's trying to mount your intended new /home as /root :?

In the terminal xed admin:///mnt/etc/fstab and change d26a90af-e4b6-4b82-b7dd-ab630722e4c2 to b3696d64-ab78-4aa0-a200-51441f4cf061

Then reboot to the installed system.
