Upgrade from 18.3 to 19 was as smooth as butter. But since restoring from image backup with Veeam Cinnamon will only run in fallback mode. I will try applying all updates & reboot.
Please let others know how you solved this. Someone may benefit from your new-found knowledge.

Yes. I have a Mint install running on a 128GB USB. Just point the installer at your device.

A 10-15% reduction in speed is significant
Only on paper. The human eye needs about 20% difference before a change in the speed of some thing is detected. The problem is, you now know that 4.20 will be 10-15% slower so, by dint of sheer self-fulfilling prophecy, you'll notice it.

Re: Slow boot - Kernel (not userspace)

Don't use sudo for systemd-analyze . Quite unnecessary, and may even have negative side effects. Why is it so? Because systemd-analyze also works without sudo, and because unnecessarily running an application with root authority always carries the risk of messing up file permissions. :wink: Ah. Tha...

Have you considered using a "live" cd or USB stick, that is functional OS on separate media, to do the decryption? If you install the OS you may destroy everything on the hard drive.

Re: Linux Mint as a server?

Mint is a Desktop OS, if you want a pure server I'd suggest installing a server distro instead, e.g. Ubuntu Server https://www.ubuntu.com/download/server I was going to mention that servers generally run headless and GUI-less but given this is a newcomer question, I chose not to muddy the waters.

I've been evaluating different opensource alternatives to Windows Server. Not a bit MS fan haha. Would Mint be able to do the job? It will do just fine.
