Acutally, I think my tutorial on that https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1849 is fairly easy to follow. Sorry you had trouble with it. The whole section about "Booting from the Grub prompt, without a Menuentry" could be ignored if the first part of the tutorial works for you.MtnDewManiac wrote:Since even the idiot in the room (me) was able to use the "Boot the .ISO from the only hard drive in the computer, load it entirely into RAM, and then install the distro" method - with LOTS of help from you, of course - I think it should be given more publicity. It is even faster than installing from USB (with no "burning" to a flash drive via UNetbootin required) and does not waste a DVD, either. It seems better than the upgrade-in-place method to me, and works even when the user managed to screw things up (whereas the upgrade probably wouldn't have).
And now my distro (version) is supported until 2021.
