Re: Dual Boot With 3 Hard Drives Installed

If you can boot up your machine from Mint Live USB you could try reinstalling the bootloader in the EFI partition presented in your system following the method described in this link: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/6 Unfortunately, this doesn't work. When I restart from Windows ...

Do you mean that you can't boot into Mint at all? Not even from BIOS? Or the method given by @deepakdeshp?
Yes Secure Boot is turned off, as is Fast Startup in Win 10. There is no booting Mint without Boot Repair.

Re: Dual Boot With 3 Hard Drives Installed

Correct, no access to Mint, even going to the BIOS. I read someplace that HP goes to great lengths to avoid dual booting.

Re: Dual Boot With 3 Hard Drives Installed

Is that the only way to deal with this issue? If you want to get the Grub menu always at boot, you'll need to edit your /etc/default/grub file. For LM 19.x: xed admin:///etc/default/grub In the file put a # in front of GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden and change the value of GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 from 0 to the a...

You have to change timeout parameter in grub.
ALso from Mint give the command

Code: Select all

 sudo update-grub
Well, that worked once but now it doesn't. I have used Boot Repair and did sudo update-grub.

I have been using Linux since 1999 and have never seen this. Any help is appreciated.

Please see if you get grub by holdinG ctrl key as the system boots
That works! Is that the only way to deal with this issue?

Dual Boot With 3 Hard Drives Installed

Hi, I have a new HP PC with three hard drives. Windows 10 is on the first drive, the second drive is Data and I installed Mint on the third. Unfortunately every time I boot up Grub is gone. I installed it on the EFI partition on the first drive. Should Grub have gone somewhere else? I always dual bo...

Re: Nvidia update crashes Cinnamon

Thanks chazdg24 and to everyone who has replied. The fixes I put into place have worked on and off, and allow me a "normal" boot only occasionally. Most of the time I boot up via software rendering mode and can work there, but with the usual impacts that mode entails. Still frustrated that a single...

Re: Nvidia update crashes Cinnamon

To be fair, every distro has an occasional issue, and Mint / Cinnamon usually works really well. But to see the same problem repeated over a period of years is troubling. When it's time for an upgrade, the next distro will not be Cinnamon. Maybe Mate, in order to keep enjoying Mint's other features...

Re: New to LMDE

LMDE is Debian 8 Jessie based and this Debian edition uses this kernel. No, it is not the latest and greatest (although these two don't necessarily go together). If you want the latest then I don't think LMDE is for you. Should you still be interested in a Debian based OS try the SolydXK EE version...

Re: New to LMDE

Hi, I use SolydK (from SolydXK) which is a similar project as LMDE, only it uses either the XFCE or KDE desktop where LMDE uses either MATE or Cinnamon. I have installed the latest Nvidia driver from their website and installed it, works great. You can probably also install it directly from the sof...

New to LMDE

I have used Mint for years along with man other distros except for Debian. I have two questions: I notice booting and shutdown a bit slow. In Mint 18, I used the Nvidia drivers which seemed to speed things up. Would I possibly get a similar result with LMDE? The kernel is 3.16. Is it possible to upd...

Refreshing Screen in System Settings Not Working

I updated to Mint 17.2 from 17.1. I am really impressed with the performance enhancements. One issue that I have noticed is that I am unable to refresh any system settings.

This works, but is not a full proof method. It took seven attempts over two days to get the root prompt to recognize my user name. This makes Arch look easy. :shock:
