But if it works fine once booted - should I understand you that...

Re: Mint Menu causes zombie processes??

Re: help requested : asus usb wifi adapter in Helena Main

I have yet not seen a laptop that does not have some sort of on/off switch for the wifi

Does the internal wifi work? You are not clear on that

Re: /dev/disk/by-uuid/#### not found, drops to a shell?

I suppose you use grub2 (and you do, unless you have upgraded) and it's still new and unfamiliar I've found what probably is the solution, but in a Catch 22 manner you need to boot to make it work when I ran a live cd and looked at it with partition editor that my mint and swap partitions no longer ...

Sorry for the late answer - I must give other duties priority for a while I got 'GRUB loading. error: no such disk' - but I don't understand WHY.
