Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Yeah, not sure what to make of it. I was expecting that there might be problems with the OS itself, or with some applications within the OS but not something that fundamentally affected things at the BIOS level. Unfortunately, I installed UP5 on my production machine in a second partition to Mepis 11, thinking that I could always remove it if I wanted, or if it had problems. But, in effect, it affects my Mepis install as well, since I can only just get into BIOS setup if I have very nimble fingers. In the next few days when i can get a good few hours, I'll try what I posted above - reinstalling Grub2 from UP5 and if necessary Grub from the Mepis Live DVD (Mepis 11 still uses Grub Legacy, which maybe why I never had this problem before - though i am sure i also tried Mint 13 here which I am sure did use Grub2). I'll post my results - maybe Friday.slashw wrote:@arjay
Your problem with the usb keyboard sounds familiar to me , i also have a asus m/b (sabertooth 990fx).
Also sometimes it will not fire up ( it responds on nothing at all) , i then reset the pc and than boots normal up.
It is not only related to LMDE KDE , it is happen also with another mint distro (not sure witch it was)
Maybe its a asus problem ?
My keyboard and mouse are from razer , .....usb....of curse
Don't forget that UP5 is running faultlessly on one of my test PCs so i am confident I'll get it sorted with this M/B or whatever the problem is.
