    Installing LM on a SSD

    Gentleman. I installed another version of Linux Mint 18.2 next to the previous. I realise it would probably have been better to go with another distro but I had the USB ready to go so I thought why not give it a try. And... I think we made it, or are at least close. I have the second Mint as...

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Hey fellas. So I tried to change the settings in the bios but they don't have the option. Apparently this is a bit of a problem with hp laptops but I couldn't quite figure it out. I think ahci is the default however you can't change it. I'm going to look into this a little more. I did get...

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Hey guys I completely agree with the final two points. It's encouraging to know it's not like this normally. My goal is to have a stable and reliable system. If it's this picky it might be a problem in the future. I'm guessing we are missing something clear. Let me think a bit but I'll also...

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Sorry wizard I'm not very descriptive after I'm celebrating success! I was able to boot into Linux mint with the welcome screen and all. This was after going to a "Linux mint Advanced boot options" then to "Linux mint kernel generic (as opposed to recovery, and upstart). I have to finish...
