[SOLVED] Linux mint install headache cure

Post by hartstephen »

I have made a live iso USB stick,and DVD, .
I have made For both a 32 bit system and a 64 bit.
After a bit , sometimes great frustration, I got smart and went to this site

https://www.osdisc.com/products/linux/l ... 8UQAvD_BwE.

Do a copy and past into your favorite browser address bar. Press enter. And wonders never cease!

Buy a Live Linux mint a usb stick. $ 5.95
Headaches gone. I have to reinstall many times, because of my testing, and learning, from these USB sticks. Never had a problem.

If I have offended any one, I do apologize.

Just take a look at the site.
Thank you all!
Stephen

I've never had a problem with making install disks for Mint. But if you do have them, they can be a pain, and I'm glad to hear you found something that works well for you.

On my Legacy BIOS Windows computer, I used the Imgburn program to burn the LM ISO file onto a DVD+R disc at the slower 2X burn-speed and proceeded to install LM alongside Windows without any frustration. The DVD+R disc only cost me US$0.30.

I have also done the same with the Universal USB Installer program to create a Live LM USB-stick with 4GB of Persistent storage.

Looks like shameless advertising to me. In most forums moderators would remove post/thread like this.

I think it's useful information and a reminder of a good Linux partner.

Mostly, I just download and burn. However, I have bought some distros from OSDisc.com and they work perfectly. Just consider it a choice.
I feel more like I do than I did when I got here.

It just seems like such a waste of a few bucks and time. As you mention download and burn in what . . . 10 minutes or so. My gosh you type USB in the menu search bar and USB Image Writer pops up which is way easy to use. But whatever - if the are reputable go for it.
