Sorry, I haven't answered this question about this boot problem because i have no clue about it and, no, i never had this problem. I am on the Asus Eee PC X101CH, with Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia Mate 32-bit. Besides, i am just a beginner, so you should get much better support when you start your own thread in some other sub-forum in there: https://forums.linuxmint.com/Lloydbiker wrote: ↑Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:34 am[...] but I have a pretty consistent glitch: If I start up with charger plugged in, I quite often fail to get a 'Clean' boot, have to force shutdown, and restart (on battery- unplugged charger). But, if I boot on battery, I get a 'Clean' boot every time. Also, if I go to 'menu', select 'quit', and abort to 'Restart', if the charger is connected, the restart quite often fails. But, if on battery only, 'Restart' is completed cleanly.
PM message will be sent with more details. Thanks for your understanding.
