Hello from Macedonia OH

Post by guy_cottle » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:10 am

Well, it took me two days to figure out how to get LM installed (in dual boot with Windows 10 Pro) on this recently purchased used HP ProOne 600 computer that I got for $90 off of Facebook Marketplace. The root problem was that Windows was starting in BIOS-compatible mode, not UEFI, and wasn't getting detected by the installer. Since I've been using Macs for many years, I had to re-learn a lot of stuff to get through the process but she's up and running beautifully.
