Re: Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon: error invalid extent!!!

Do you have Windows on the desktop?
If so, have you disabled Secure Boot in the BIOS?
Have you disabled Fast Start-Up in Windows?

Sorry, but that's not really an option as the internet where I am is very slow (both upload and download average at 0.5mb/s) so uploading large files isn't really an option.... Is there anything I can do file recovery wise to get back the files? I haven't asked you to upload any large files. Captur...

Re: message @ install with usb install

Windows cannot see ext4 partitions which is why they do not appear in Windows Disk Manager. You have created the Linux Partitions.

Re: Kernel panics 3.16 or above

How new is the TV tuner PCI?

The 3.19 kernel is for the newest hardware and from the sounds of it is incompatible with some of your other hardware.

Is there a newer BIOS version for your rig?

Re: Install Freeze

Is any other Operating System installed on the disk?

If so, have you shrunk that O/S partition to create space for Linux Mint?

Re: UEFI, Unable to install GRUB, Mint 17.2 / Windows 8.1

Did you reboot into Windows after shrinking the Windows O/S partition?

Re: Mint / Win 7 dual boot

I would also run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt in Win7.

Next step would be to use the Win7 installation disk to repair Windows.
