Re: Not booting from live USB

Good work! Problem solved, suggest you now insert [Solved] in subject heading.

So, where now? Wanting to install Linux Mint 19.2 as a dual boot with Windows 10 or just having a look around Linux Mint 19.2?

Re: Not booting from live USB

Hi, Are you accessing BIOS, via F9 at the start of the boot process, to access which item to boot from or move the USB to top of the boot list?
I wouldn't expect the USB to appear in the GRUB menu.
Hope this helps.

Re: EFI USB boot issue

Have noted Clonezilla documentation mention the need for <EFI_SYSTEM_PARTITION>/BOOT/BOOT<MACHINE_TYPE_SHORT_NAME>.EFI to be included . So maybe just have to sort out how this fits into efibootmgr create and may have the Clonezilla live--2.6.1-25-AMD64 USB booting!

Re: Minimise - shuts down not minimise!

Excellent, thanks all41, the panel is now full of minimised windows.
How would I have achieved the deletion of the Windows List from the panel without doing so via "Add to Panel" feature?
Thanks again, all back to normal. :D
