Since Dell 2008

Post by SidVicious »

Hello from Argentine.

Thanks COVID's time and social isolation, I brought from the warehouse a DELL that was intended to be "given away" or sold as a spare.

I had not seen the system for a long time, it was running on Win XP, and it had fallen into a loop with a blue error screen that caused it to restart again and again, without being able to start in failsafe mode.

I did not hesitate so much, and I installed Mint directly formatting everything and it was left without any partition.

My "system" :oops:

Reading the information in that log, a thousand questions occur to me, so I will go and find if I find the information in the forum, and then they will surely read me out there.

Have excellent health, and take care.
