Cannot change boot order on dual boot machine..updated....need help.<Solved...kinda>

Howdy, I will try to get as much info in the post as I can. I have installed Mint 18.3 alongside windows, crashed Sylvia, and just reinstalled another copy. So far, so good. No problem for me. I gave the laptop to my wife because she wants to try Linux. I need the machine to boot into Syliva, but ca...

Sytem Slow Down

Howdy! This happened on another machine last year and I just rebooted to solve the problem. Guess I should FIX the problem this time around. I have an Acer J22 all in one, i3, 4g ram, Linux, free dos, hidden windows installation partition. I update pretty much every day and some time in the last wee...

Re: Total System Crash

Well, it is painstakingly obvious I posted in the correct place....


I did an oem install and have no idea what my log in is. I have the password, just no clue what my log in is.

Shortcut took my right to it though

Re: Asus laptop, Realtek wifi nightmare, need help please

Thank you for the links. I read through them and have tried everything. The only thing I had not tried was country code, and it is set to US, and "ignore" on ipv6 connections. I decided not to mess with that one as my connection has been active and stable since I originally posted an hour ...

Re: Aptik restore mistep......HELP

Thanks Cosmo. That is pretty much what I thought......on BOTH trains of thought. Linux is a learning curve. I could have my wife boot up the machine at home( in Thailand ), run aptik, email me the file, etc, etc...... Decided it was just easier to set up the new system. Thanks again for the info. JC

Tonight I set up a new laptop with Mint, installed aptik, plugged in my usb, and promptly clicked on 1 click back up instead INSTEAD of 1 click RESTORE. is there...

Re: Strange USB Live Issue on new Machine

Thanks for the reply Mr. Louwe. I am pretty sure Rufus sets the live USB up for both BIOS and UEFI boot. I have used the 1st USB on both my old machine and a 2016 laptop that was UEFI. I live in Thailand and my new machine was only loaded w Free Dos for an OS. The shop was happy to to install window...

Re: Black screen while booting from USB

I just put up what sounds like a similar post that shows a few below you. Used Rufus to make an 18.2 live USB, checked the check sum, ended up with the black screen. Live USB worked fine on the old machine. My solution was to use my 1st Mint 17.*usb I created. It installed fine then I upgraded to 18...

Strange USB Live Issue on new Machine

Howdy, My post is actually about 2 separate issues, but they are so closely related I am including them as 1 post rather than clutter the forum. 1) I created a Mint 17.* live USB and have used it for about a year for various applications. I also created a newer version of 17 and it worked fine as we...
