Re: Cant boot liveCD on new laptops

I'm having the same problem, but I don't have a secure boot option on my Lenovo. How to get around this? I really want to install Cinnamon on my laptop. Maybe we have to install a previous version and then upgrade?

Mate installed, btw, but won't write grub anywhere.

Re: Can't Boot Mint from an Arch System with Grub

Still can't boot Mint. Not sure how to proceed or what to try next. Don't really want to totally wipe existing Arch installation. Can anyone assist?

Re: Can't Boot Mint from an Arch System with Grub

That's another weird thing - it is ext4! Don't know why it's saying ext2 there, makes me think it's trying to write somewhere else. Mint installed grub2 to /dev/sdb during the install. That wouldn't boot anything, which is why I restored grub legacy from within arch. I don't know a next step, either...

Re: Can't Boot Mint from an Arch System with Grub

I wondered where it went. :p

I did install it to /dev/sda2 in Mint. When that didn't work, I couldn't boot anything - I think the partition designations are changing from OS to BIOS/grub, is that possible? I used the UUID and label, like I said, but nothing is working.

Can't Boot Mint from an Arch System with Grub

Mint overwrote my grub install with grub2, which wouldn't boot anything. I had to boot from rescue CD into Arch and restore grub. No matter what I add to grub, though, it won't boot Mint. I tried using labels, even, but I still get various errors at boot (no such partition, can't find disk, can't fi...
