uefi boot order

Post by jackjps » Sat Apr 21, 2018 10:36 am

4-21-2018

Working on my wife's computer.
It is a 64-bit uefi computer using LinuxMmint.
I will probably put this in the wrong folder so
please bare with me.
I am enclosing an attachment to show the boot screen.
Previously I tried to use PCLinuxos and gave up on it.
Glad I did. I deleted it entirely from the computer EXCEPT
it is showing up in the boot order uefi screen.
I can not delete it or move it up or down with the +/- keys.

2nd problem.
I usually backup her computer with Clonezilla-live.
I downloaded Clonezilla-live-2.5.5-38-amd64.
It will not start and goes right into LinuxMint.

3rd problem.
I am unable to delete from my wife's computer a previous
backup "/bu-04-21-2018-donna-lm" that is not good. It is
quite large and I need to delete it.

Please help as I am a windows user and know just enough about
Linux to be dangerous.
Thanks for any help.

Open Terminal and enter

Code: Select all

man efibootmgr
That will give you the manual for efibootmgr, should be installed. Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlmPUClmTbc
