Noob - Solved

Post by mex » Thu Jun 20, 2019 1:54 am

G'day G'day,
As the subject would suggest I am a Johnny Come Lately, and definitely not a Johnny Gone Quickly.
I've come to Linux after the HP all-in-one armed with a Windows OS decided not to play.
It seems the choice was well thought out as not only does the system work when required but also with greater speed than with Windows.
My initial task included partitioning, as expected the HP has now two operating systems, one of which will obviously be dumped altogether when my technical ability improves, which most likely may come with kind assistance from those with greater knowledge than I.
That initial task I believe had more to do with luck rather than expertise but thankfully I now have a PC which runs without constant problems and with greater speed, consistently.
Start up is as yet not hassle free, I still need to play with the Cancel button and go through some kind of procedure to hook up with Ubuntu to get into the Sign In. Apart from that all is well.
When I can figure out how to get rid of Windows OS and the partition I believe the likelihood of a functional PC will be a reality.
Perhaps in future I may be able to assist others within the Linux Community with knowledge gained via this Forum.
Many, many thanks to Linux for what I believe to be a new beginning.

Welcome to the forum. Which mint version are you running.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

Hi Mex,
welcome to our forum
:)

those HPs can be an real issue, when dual_booting with an Linux System:
- I've done it a few times now, on a few Laptops.

once you've become more familiar with the LinuxMint system,
you can either re-install, again, and erase that Windows System,
or simply erase it's C: drive, but wait an while, and play with your New system, in the meantime.

Welcome to the forum. Which mint version are you running.
My apology for delay in reply and thank you for the kind reply.
The description on my HP all-in-one monitor is 'E1 VISION AMD21'
The operating system which I have running is Linux Cinnamon 19.1 64-bit
Regretfully I do not have any other information with which I can assist.
Kind Regards,
mex

Thank you Pierre for the kind welcome and advice.
Just getting up to speed with any Forum will be a learning curve, let alone a new system. As for HP, the only description which comes to mind - LEMONS.
Question. Does erasing the C: drive automatically remove the partition and provide the new OS (Linux) with the total space within the drive?
In the meantime I will take the time to become familiar with Linux as you have suggested before attempting any further foray into computing.
Thank you once again.
Warm Regards,
mex

Thank you WharfRat for the warm welcome.
Am not yet sure how everything works in either Mint or Forum however learning slowly has proven over time to be the best method.

Ahh YES - - erasing the C: drive automatically remove the partition,
and then provide the new OS (Linux) with the total space within the drive.
