I would not call that incident a mistake. At the most it may be incomplete but such is the great majority of advice you get here and anywhere else. Others can come along and add more.

Even if you make the occasional mistake it is not a big deal because it will be corrected by others and everyone will come out wiser.

By participating we all learn not only from each other's knowledge but also from each other's mistakes.

The quickest way to get correct advice on any forum is to post blatantly INCORRECT advice. :D

Gee, thank you everyone. I didn't realise. Your words of encouragement are genuinely heart warming. Maybe my trip away will relax me a bit and I can return refreshed. It's nice to know I have so many genuine friends. I'll be back in very early August.

Everyone take care and stay safe.
Please do come back after your trip! We missed you during your hiatus a few years back, I know we'll do it again.
Bali sounds like fun. :D

Another unintentional bad advice to a newbie ... viewtopic.php?f=46&t=273505 and the followup ... viewtopic.php?f=46&t=273513 , ie the newbie was told to install the "Device for boot loader installation" to the wrong device/place/partition = LM 19 in UEFI mode became unbootable = requiring a reinstall of LM - similar to your unintentional mistake at ... viewtopic.php?p=1495720#p1495720

In the end, all things turned out for the better.

Good day. :D

Read this and my heart sank as you've been an encouragement and help so many times and your knowledge would be sorely missed by many here. I am pleased to have read that you're coming back in August at least we hope that you will
As for age :? :? Well I can remember the Beatles first TV appearance, but not what I was doing a few moment ago :lol: :lol: They're called Senior moments and without them what would the youngsters here do

Shoot. You don't even have to do that! Just ask a simple question!

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.

But that Avatar and user name! How will people get curious and not want to go see what it is about? :)

(Maybe i'm speaking as a british person that has watched some 80's tv shows in his time?).

We never got that one here in the States (at least not that I've ever seen...) but I figured it had to be some kind of Brit TV program...:D
