I want to install Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon.
I downloaded the iso from the official web site ( https://linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=237 ) and created a bootable USB key using dd :
Code: Select all
$ wipefs --all /dev/sdx
$ dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx status=progress && sync
I rebooted my computer and the USB key was not recognized as a bootable device by the BIOS (the "legacy BIOS" (CSM) option was enabled).
I then switched to UEFI boot and there the USB key was recognized (as a CD/DVD, because of dd creating an iso9660 image) and bootable.
Thing is I have to install it alongside with Windows 7 which is installed in legacy mode.
The stranger thing is that I tried installing Linux Mint 18.1 on the same PC (a few months ago) and it could be booted from both modes (legacy BIOS and UEFI).
Any idea of what's going wrong with that install ?
Any idea how to get it working ?
