    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    A big part of my problem with LM is understanding what I'm told to do. No offense intended, Chris. At the time I'm dealing with a specific problem, I try to pay close attention to what I'm being told to do (follow instructions) but that doesn't mean I actually understand what it is I'm being...

    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    Duuhh! It came in from a publisher (can't recall the name) on Win7 when I booted into Linux. They simply said there's an new update for gparted and gave the link. Sorry Chris...I do get notices from these people periodically but just can't recall the name. Dick

    FYI...since I can't take a screenshot before booting the HD, here manually is what I see in the Boot Menu as well as the Setup Util. -- Boot 1- HDD/SSD 2- HDD/SSD 3- USB 4- FDD 5- CD/DVD InsydeH20 Setup Util. Rev. 3.5 * HDD/SSd: WDC WDS 100%2B0A-00Sm50 (S2) ODD: Samsung SSD 860 EVV0...

    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    Didn't really understand your command, Chris. Here's what I get on the desktop... [email protected] ~ $ apt-cache policy gparted gparted: BUT on the Toshiba your email is not protected. In Terminal I don't know where to stop the command. I did what I thought and here's what I got. Dick

    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    Sorry for the delay in response, Poor Guy. According to Wiz, my Toshiba has some BIOS issues that I as of now don't know how to fix. So any attempt at using a flash drive to boot into anything will only bring me to the Windows Disk Image Burner DVD R Drive. We'll get 'er fixed though! Thanks for...

    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    Hi Chris, This all got started when I received an update notice for gparted and all I wanted to do was keep updated and fresh on those programs we are using on my project(s). As usual the problem seems to be the loose nut behind the drive. I forget stuff Wiz that I shouldn't be forgetting if I'm...

    Wish to Burn .iso to thumb drive not dvd

    Got the gparted update notice. Downloaded it and it wants to burn it only to a dvd. Not given the option of usb. I read in the LM Official Users' Guide that there is a way to do this...more advanced but doable. How's it done? Doc

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    Hi Chris, 19.2 Tina sounds good to me when you think it's stable. I'll try to stay on top of it and then make a new thread when the time comes. Thanks for the well wishes. We're in the central mountain region and get whipped by the tail of those storms but usually just some terrific wind and...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    Excellent, Chris!!!! It did update. I'll just be patient until Sylvia updates. Wiz I'm thinking I'll just hang tight on messing with that unused internal SSD for now. Was going to ask for tutoring on putting 19.1 on it, but thought was that it would be my luck to have a totally new version...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    Hi Chris, I edited (x'd) the timeout. When I go to update the grub though, I'm told that the command is not found??? When I reboot, I am resting on 18.3 as my primary choice!!!...it reboots in normal time for this Toshiba, but it is still listed 4-5 lines down and not in the top spot. That...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    O.K., did as instructed. But when I went to update grub I got the enclosed message...sorry, I didn't realize that I was answering you in 18.3 while the screenshots were taken in 18.1...and I'm now back in 18.1 & will try again. This 1st one is before I changed to the '4'. As you can see setting...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    Really sorry, Chris...I thought we covered all this back around #104-#106. It really was a trick to keep going back & forth moving the grub choice so I could write down what's on the screen. Sad there's no option anywhere at this stage of booting to take screenshots. Anyway, here we go: GNU...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    I've looked carefully at this Toshiba Bios setup and there's more to it Peer. There are 6 choices numbered. #1 priority clearly has 2 within HDD/SSD WDC WDS100T2B0A-00SM50 (S2) and there is no obvious way to see behind that curtain (select and see values). Wiz has hinted at this being a...

    Wish to have LM 18.3 as Default System on Startup (dual booting)

    I suppose I should have done something more to invite a continuance of this ongoing project...like a question? What are the steps necessary to move 18.1 to a lower priority boot while moving 18.3 to the primary? And of course thanks, Wiz. Doc

    Store installed LM 18.1, Wish to replace with my original LM 18.3

    Hey...you've both jumped right in and it opened up. On this system... unless you get the right 'Linux---Forums' tab, you just get an ad on the right along with a small icon which if you click on it, there is a navigation aid that lists General Linux Forums. Confusing, I know however I did go...

    Store installed LM 18.1, Wish to replace with my original LM 18.3

    Well...here I am (hat in hand and red-faced) AGAIN! I've chosen General Linux Forums but there is no Post New Thread. There is a New Post tab along with other options to the left but no Post New Thread tab. Honestly, Wiz, I've checked under every tab I can see. Please try me again. Doc

    O.K., Wiz...who starts it and how do I start a new topic? I can't see any obvious tab (not a bad idea). Doc
