No, I did not unfortunately. I lost my 64 gig SDXC card where I make backups to.
Well, I think you need to backup your treasured stuff and reinstall.

Re: Using the Terminal to Backup Home Dir.

In the name of simplicity the thought occurred to me, forget this whole backup business, and just copy the Home folder to my usb stick, and then after I have installed LM 18.3, copy it back to 18.3's Home folder? But first deleting 18.3's Firefox. Just make sure you show hidden files before you do ...

Re: fstab UUID's are no longer valid after disk change from MBR to GPT

The drive is not encrypted, But before starting a tale as an old wife I must ask. Have you tried it? If so, What would the steps be? :-) Boot the live USB, mount the OS and sudo nano -w /<mount.point>/etc/fstab . Ctrl-o to save, ctrl-x to exit. Use sudo blkid to get the drives UUID before editing f...

a shame, I had just finished not 3 days ago, installing a brand new Tactile Feel keyboard, a new 500 gB SSD and 8 gB of DDR3 RAM which probably won't fit another laptop.... :evil:

How would it be possible for the LM Live USB to access and edit the fstab file of another system? Isn't it protected?

You might try the beta version of Mint 19 on a flash drive to see if that boots. It's possible that whatever version you're currently trying to use doesn't have full AMD support in the kernel.
