[Solved]uefi boot

Hi Guys

I'm just about ready to ditch windows 10 on my new laptop and use 17.3 and perhaps a small windows 7 partition.
Would I have to keep the efi partition or change the bios to legacy and ditch the efi?
I have 17.3 dual booted with win10 right now

Re: Can't share folders on second drive

Thanks for everyone’s help. I got the shares to so, but I feel like a idiot.

I can't see the shares from a windows computer, but thats for a different topic.

Re: Can't share folders on second drive

I noticed I didn't use a capital in the smbshared file just as I posted. I changed them all to Storage
and it is still doing it.

I should say that when I try to open the folder I get a "Unable to mount location" "Failed to mount Windows Share:No such file or directory: msg

Re: "No bootable device" after install

I'm no expert but where did you install grub to? I believe it has to be installed to the efi partition. Also, do you have secure boot turned off?

Drive permissions

Hello

I think I likely did a newbie stupid< but I added a second 3tb drive to a new installation formatted to ext4. It is being mounted with the owner as root.
How do I change the permissions allow me full access?

Re: Can Linux Mint 17.3 be install on UEFI computer

i just installed on a new uefi laptop. I had to turn off secure boot and left the bios as uefi. Grub was installed to the efi partition. Mine didn't detect windows, so I had to manually partition the drive.
