Thanks for the offer, but i have found a workaround.

I was able to install lmde3 and then upgrade to 4.
You're welcome, and thank you for your follow-up. Happy to know that you found a way to accomplish what you wanted to do in the first place. In the final analysis, that's all that really matters. Good luck, and have fun exploring LMDE 4.

I found an another way to install LMDE without creating partitions with GParted.

I install first LM20 alongside W10, then create an bootable usb with LMDE and format the previously created partition for LM20 in LMDE custom partition menu, i selected the "/" as boot.

In my case the /boot/efi on /dev/sda2 are used by grub and windows boot manager.

It takes more time, but easier for an average user.

Works well :D

It cames without swap partition, not recommended for computer with low memory.

My next test creating swap and separate home partition.

If successfull i make an HowTo.



After test i made it working well with 3 dedicated partitions => Swap, Root, Home


The HowTo are available here

LMDE4 Kernel 5.9
