Re: SOLVED - Errors encountered upgrading from Mint 17 to 17

I had this problem, and my solution was to:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove mintx-colors-gtk-theme
Then run the updates from the Update Manager. They finished within seconds. Then I did

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
just in case.

Everything was fixed after this.

Re: Mint 14 32 Bit, Upgrade tp 64 Bit

You should have partitioned your drives so that your data/files can be moved to a formatted partition in your computer, separate from the drive that you are installing the OS to (Linux). Also, I'm almost certain that the new Linuxmint will allow installation from within the OS, no need for booting i...

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

My laptop drive has only ONE hard drive, which is GPT.

Are you saying I can install grub to the pendrive (sbd) and have it detect the Linux os on my internal harddrive (sba)? That would be nice.

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

Thanks for your help and patience, man.

EasyBCD doesn't work for me. I think I'm just going to format the drive to MBR and boot a dedicated Linux.

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

Hhhmmm. When I "View Settings" the Linux entries display Bootloader Path: \NST\AutoNeoGrub1.mbr

There is no such path, and I can't change it.

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

Which partition do you think I should set it to boot? I tried 6 (the one with the grub bios flag) and it failed.

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

Okay I just tried it. It seems promising, though I got a boot failure. It thinks it wants to boot Windows. I'm working with the easybcd program now. Stand by.

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

Could I not just format a partition in MSDOS instead?

Re: Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE

I just bought this laptop for college a few days ago. There isn't anything on it. So it won't be a problem remove Windows 7 (no files on here yet).

Cannot boot Linux Mint KDE [SOLVED]

Hey guys. I have searched the internet for the past 6 hours straight, while also constantly attempting to install this distro to my laptop. I can get it installed into a partition but I can't figure out how to boot from the harddrive so I can boot my installed version of LM13, and not the test USB v...
