If there are still troubles in 64-bit (like you still cant install UEFI mode) then we can give further advices, but the first step is a 64-bit reinstall.

I did install the 64 bit LM as indicated in my previous post.

I suppose that the problem is that you installed 64-bit Mint, but you installed it CSM-mode (Legacy). The next command tells

Code: Select all

[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "UEFI mode active" || echo "Legacy mode active"

If so, you need to convert Legacy installation to UEFI.

I can boot the machine with Windows when the BIOS setting is UEFI . I can boot LM when Bios setting is CSM.
I thank all whose advise helped me solve the issue.
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.
I am using Mint 18 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD processor .
