During my first install, I only had the SSD hooked up, but when I did the windows update and had to restore it off of the thu...

Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Thank you for that help! I now have a drive I want to format to ntfs while IN Linux Mint KDE, is this the command syntax:

sudo fdisk -t ntfs /dev/(name)

?

I get an unsupported disk label. I did partition the drive using KDE partition Manager, but don't see a way to format the drive using a GUI.

Would love to be able to find a way to make a...

Anyways, couldn't find a configuration anywhere for turning them on, so I downloaded xscreensaver and the add on, but don't know how to make them work beyond actually choosing to run t...

Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Great, no errors! Let me check mnt and see. Why didn't gparted allow these and why did it show them to be zfs? I want to add something I didn't think to tell you, these drives came out of some sort of server or something, they are enterprise drives, was that a factor? Thank you! Now I have to learn ...
