5.) Something else?
Use Clonezilla Live to clone the small drive to the bigger drive. Remove the small drive. All done. The worst you'll have to do is extend the linux partition in the clone.

It appears from Googling I have done this slow boot is a problem with 19.
The problem isn't Mint 19 per se. It's this:

Oh, that's good to know!
Then, where/how am I to enter my icons directory?
Comment out the existing line, assuming there is one, and uncomment one of the custom lines, then add your path in place of myicons or icons/snowy.

The # is a comment mark, which renders the line into a comment, not an option.

Thank you, that worked perfectly!
You're most welcome.

PS: xed admin:///etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

That may be easier in Mint 19 :)

I need to open and edit this file, but it wont let me save.
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
in properties, it's not letting me change permissions. I'm running LM MATE
Do it in the command line: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

ctrl-s to save (Mint 19) and ctl-x to exit.

Well, today I'm off to spend some cash... However, after a lot more reading concerning NVME drives, they are very fast but as there is an extra initialization layer between the 'normal' storage interfaces, and the PCIE bus the advantages of using an superfast M.2 drive is negated for booting, the s...

I tried Firefox, Chromium and media players such as VLC, mpv and SMPlayer: non of these gives great re...

The solution was to reduce the number of places bookmarked in Caja.
Or alternatively install something like Cairo-dock or plank.
