    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    I'll be very happy to go first with The Green Hornet upon your suggestion. :) I'll also view your forthcoming steps to resolve the MX 19.1 with GRUB errors dilemma. Once that download's traces are eliminated, the correct 1 May version (or better still a newer download via Sourceforge, via this...

    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    Thanks for the video link which I shall watch shortly. :) I'm not sure which Live mode I have MX 17 in, but wherever the options are, as I'm sure I've seen them at some point, I'll retain or switch to "Persistence" mode. Although I first used Linux (on a small scale) in 2016, it's only since...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    Thanks Tolkem. I'm working my way through replies per topic and will read and reply to yours in the above link shortly. It will be a huge relief when these technical faults are eliminated, although depending on the source of the errors stem from will influence if, which and how many errors can...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    Hi again Captain Sensible After initially thinking I had good news that, after re-starting up my computer via my MX 17 USB stick, the MX 19.1 download resumed where it left off, but it eventually failed (I tried the Sourceforge option as an alternative, but Sourceforge or MX Mirror links, sadly...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    As always, I am very happy to try out anything that helps resolve or reduce computer faults (and in other cases assist with my Epson all-in-one and MX 19.1 transfer pending the technical issue delaying me beyond my control), whether on CD and/or USB stick, but wherever possible, I'd like to use...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    I'll keep my Desktop computer to hand (the same machine that's experiencing all the problems), but also make use of my Laptop which currently still has Windows 7 on it due to not having enough time to complete going through and backing up a backlog of files including photos on the laptop, so I...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    Yes. Even more so if downloading Knoppix via my MX 17 USB stick that I'm using as I write to a different USB stick will enable me to access MX 17 on my hard drive in preparation for MX 19.1, once the unwanted 15 February download (that I deleted from another USB stick in April) of MX 19.1 is...

    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    I've so far not tried to download the ISO image again since 1 May. I'd be happy to re-download the ISO image as a brand new May download, this time via upon your recommendation of Sourceforge instead of MX Linux's Mirrors link (UK, London). The problems I'm having are that my computer is...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    I don't know if any errors can be fixed, or which ones, but if anything can be rescued including me reaccessing my physical hard drive, I'd like to do this. At present, I can't access Testdisk /photrec:

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    I tried it again earlier today, but after waiting about half an hour, still nothing. No doubt this is my computer once again preventing the program from working properly. I can vouch for this being the likely cause of Libre Office variations - MX 17 (Hard Drive) - Libre Office tries to load...

    MX Linux Now Inaccessible due to Hardware Errors

    I'm still having problems with MX 19.1 (the 15 February download with GRUB Bootloader errors on one USB stick only which is ending up on different USB sticks despite me dragging the 1 May download ISO image to the DD transfer), and today I've had to use my USB stick with MX 17 as different...

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    It sounds like all-in-ones, and individual printers and scanners are swings and roundabouts in Linux (through no fault of Linux, rather the fault of brands not fulfilling the needs of Linux users as they do for Micro$oft and Apple users where Those operating systems have Everything working out...

    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    I have, but unfortunately the outcome is still the same. :( I know the following sounds imaginary, but unfortunately it's not - After repeated attempts with DD, Balena Etcher and the MX Live USB Maker (as I couldn't fathom Unetbootin with the type of file system they use), I can definitely...

    MX Linux 19.1 GRUB Bootloader Unable to install on hard drive

    I followed your instructions slowly and carefully to make absolutely sure I conducted the steps fully and accurately, which I did (exactly as listed bar "David" and "sdb" instead of sdc, but after two attempts, I have still got nowhere. The second time I thought that I had a success, but I can...

    Epson Scanners XP-445 and SX-435W

    Unfortunately, in Scan Source, only the Epson XP-445 (listed as "EPSON XP-442_XP-445 Series" is listed for some reason. Hopefully, I'll have better success in getting Simple Scan running correctly in MX 19.1, but Gscan2pdf now scans, which is the only scanning facility I can get to work, at...
