Re: LM 17.3 Boot bug - boot repair fails [SOLVED]

Hello Fabien, Ok, thanks for the explanations. I installed 4.4.116, which was the kernel put forward by the update manager itself. I keep the old one, in case of emergency. The link you gave tells that LM 32 bit are not well protected against Meltdown. But it seems that I have no choice, since my ol...

Re: LM 17.3 Boot bug - boot repair fails

Hello, I tried the command lines you suggested to boot on EFI mode. It resulted in : - with gdisk, the "n" command was to get a "protective MBR" (there was no mention no erase it. I saw no command to do something like that) - when I launch again gdisk, it first explain there is EFI with protective M...

Re: LM 17.3 Boot bug - boot repair fails

And you rock ! I am writing from my newly working LM session : thank you very much. The last lines have made it to work again. Do my last post give you some clues about what happened ? And I note your idea to use FAT32 instead of HFSplus for a shared partition. I wanted to keep hfsplus to have a hom...

Re: LM 17.3 Boot bug - boot repair fails

Hello Fabien, I felt adventurous. However I had no "AHT" option in my refind menu when selecting MacOS. As MacOS (10.6.8) boots without any difficulty, I guess there is no heavy hardware problem. I ran fsck and disk "autotest" and it seemed OK. So here is what your suggested command lines gave : min...

Hello Fabien, Thank you very much for your last message. I just tried the process : I went in my installed linux as a root thanks to the command lines.
