Re: Mint 7 on persistent pendrive: "Could not find kernal image"

Also, as you were turning your LinuxMint into a pendrive version, in order to use that .bat file, you need to be in Windows. However, you might be able to run them via wine, although I'd say it's probably highly not recommended. I do know that in basic Linux OS's, it's not possible to use .bat files...

Re: Mint 7 on persistent pendrive: "Could not find kernal image"

You might check the md5 checksum of your ISO files. If something went wrong during the download, your kernel images may have been corrupted. Run an md5 checksum and post the results and/or refer to the md5 sums on the LinuxMint download site (I believe they're posted there). Do you know which versio...

Re: Help booting Windows 7?

Aye, thanks for your help, at any rate. I probably wouldn't have actually looked at gparted had you not suggested I take a screenshot of it.

I don't know if the admins here close topics, but I'd consider it closed. :D

Re: Help booting Windows 7?

Hmm, turns out I'm kinda slow when it comes to grub. xD It occurred to me AFTER I posted that screenshot, that as /dev/sda5 (or rather, hd0,4) is my data partition, /dev/sda4 is my Windows 7 partition! And thus, all that was needed was a simple change from (hd0,4) to (hd0,3). And now I'm able to boot!

Re: Help booting Windows 7?

Here's the screenshot.

/dev/sda5, labelled Epic Fail Drive, is my data partition (although with all this reformatting, I left all my data [pictures, etc.]) on my iPod using the disk use function.

Re: Help booting Windows 7?

Hmm...after doing some review, I changed the grub menu.lst to:

Code: Select all

title		Windows 7 [Build 7100]
root		(hd0,4)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader	+1
Same issue, though, returns Error 12: Invalid Device Requested.

Re: Moved Gnome panel to top, but unable to get info

Nevermind, disregard this entire thread, I'm a complete nub.

Right click -> add to panel -> notification area.

Boy do I feel retarded.

Re: Moved Gnome panel to top, but unable to get info

Oh God. I'm such an idiot. I didn't realise you could simply right click and change the orientation of the original Gnome panel to "top." Blah, is there any way to get back the old config, save reinstalling? I haven't been using Mint for too long, so, except for a few packages I'd need to redownload...

Moved Gnome panel to top, but unable to get info

Hey all, I just moved my Gnome panel to the top (I liked the way it was set up in Ubuntu), but now I have a few issues I can't seem to fix: 1) My opened windows won't show up on the top bar (I deleted the bottom bar). 2) I am unable to see my wireless status, my MintUpdate status, or any other notif...
