As mentioned, yes, it should be relatively easy. And sure, there might be a few caveats for the situation, or questions you have, but most anybody here is very willing to try to help out.

There are many quality users here, and friendly, who are surely willing to try to help. But you'll want to interact in a way to where everybody is making headway. People are less willing to help when they don't have a clue as to what you are experiencing because it forces them to just take a guess and try to give generic info that might be helpful or might be totally irrelevant to the situation. And that scenario is not as good for you, or for them. -At least that's how I feel when trying to offer help.

Here's some random nugget of info, and it IS useful, but not sure if it's useful for this scenario, I don't really know what this scenario is. Linux Mint Installation Guide: http://linuxmint-installation-guide.rea ... en/latest/

Since I've tried this at least a dozen times …
My first suggestion: don't wait so long before asking for help. You'll never get it done when you're frustrated.

Second suggestion: provide the information that those who are trying to help you have asked for.
