(solved) minimal bash-like line editing

Post by UpNorthLinux » Fri Dec 08, 2017 1:21 pm

After I was having issues with Mint XFCE not performing as well as it used to, I tried to reinstall the OS. But when I did, I seem to have rendered the laptop useless. There's no OS on it as of now, but when I boot up the computer I get a minimal bash-like line editing error, and can't even boot to a live USB not matter what I try. Is there I a way I can fix this and reinstall Linux, or is the laptop trash? It's a cheap HP laptop from 2014, so it's not the end of the world if it can't be fixed.

Try another usb port ,another us stick. Test the live usb on another system. Ensure correct bios setting for bios boot.
That's what ì thought off the hat.
2014 isn't so ancient.
A visit to a hardware shop may be the next thing.

I've fixed the problem by using boot repair disc. Thanks. (=
