Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Maybe when you delete those partitions (there is a "delete" button on your screenshot) you can create new ones with NTFS as file system afterwards?
But let's wait what the other guys here have to say first...

Re: [SOLVED] Brasero + ISO support

Yeah, Brasero seems to be a bit buggy in general. I remember wanting to burn a Lubuntu image with a size of 698 MiB on a regular 700MiB CD a couple of months ago but it wouldn't let me do that and gave me an error and aborted the burning process halfway through rendering the disk useless. Then I tri...

Tons of pulseaudio error messages when rebooting.

Good evening, after rebooting LMDE 2 Cinnamon 64 Bit via terminal ("sudo reboot"/"sudo shutdown -r now") I get a lot of pulseaudio error messages in my syslog. Strangely, this doesn't seem to happen when I reboot using the GUI menu. Since my audio is working just fine, I can't re...

Re: cinnamon - mint desktop freezing problems

Problems like that often can be resolved by installing the proprietary drivers for your graphic card. I had the same issue with the nouveau driver on different pcs.

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Then you might have to turn on Secure Boot in your BIOS...

But always take notes of what you are doing in the BIOS menu so you can revert the changes you have made if something goes wrong and your system refuses to boot!

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Okay, so try to enable UEFI instead of LEGACY and see if the Windows stick boots.. but be prepared: Your Linux system might not boot/work properly with UEFI enabled if you have installed it using LEGACY. In this case, don't panic, just enable LEGACY again. Because as far as I know, Windows 8.1 and l...

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

If not already selected, try to switch to UEFI and see if it works. Btw just to be sure: Where exactly do you see UEFI and LEGACY? In your boot options? Or somewhere else in the BIOS menu?

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Is it possible that you have 2 different boot options for USB? Like "USB" and "UEFI: USB"? If this is the case, try to boot the stick with the UEFI one.

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Theres the rub no point restarting as anything changed or downloaded disappears after restart you end up in a loop!!! I downloaded win 10 earlier rebooted puff win 10 not there after reboot how do I get around that? That's probably because you left the stick plugged in while restarting, so you boot...

Re: can someone get me out of linux? in a real mess!

Try shutting down your computer, removing the USB stick and turning it on again. Then, after the system has booted, plug the stick in again and burn the Windows 10 iso on it.

Re: connecting external DVD/Blu-ray drive to Cinnamon

(1) should work. What does inhibit you, to put your already existing DVD into the player and boot from it? Yeah, just boot it. Don't worry, you don't have to install anything right away. You'll get into a live system first where you can try out Linux Mint first and check if your system is compatible.
