Please help - Grub repair v18.1 Win10 dual boot.

So I installed Mint 18.1 Xfce from one USB Live disk onto another USB drive - which worked but fouled up the Grub on my SSD drive when no USB is plugged in. I will get to that later. I was able to restore my Grub via details of my disk situation and commands supplied below. However, What seems to be...

Re: Intermittent WiFi

If there are further intermittent problems, there is supposedly some fix(es) in kernel 4.8.7 or later for the RTL8723BE.

Re: Wifi drops spontaneuosly and on waking up from sleep

There was a fix in kernels newer than what you are running (4.7) which was reported to fix flaky performance of the Realtek rtl8723be NIC driver (that my Lenovo G50-45 has) so it might not do anything for your G50-80 which has the Intel 3160 wifi NIC. But since upgrading the kernel is so easy, I wou...

I did this and it would not boot for me (black screen), but it is possible my partition flags were not set right (Boot+ESP, GPT table format) wh...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

The kernel dev group linux-input just saw some code changes (patches) related to the goodix touchscreen driver. So hopefully this will help things and be available soon. Stay tuned. In the meantime, the default goodix TS driver in kernel 4.8.2 works fine as long as you run a script to reload it afte...
