    So when using password managers do they automatically record data when you fill in fields or do you tell it to record and save some sites?

    Installing LM on a SSD

    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...

    I'll try to get in but last I checked the command line wasn't able to get in either. This business about lives is simply an excuse :D (joking). Seriously though enjoy your evening and do something with your wife, linux will be there tomorrow, even mine!

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Hey everyone. A little update. Firstly apologies for being away I've been busy. So I attempted your solution wizard and I don't appear to have more success booting. I think I updated the grub successfully. However when booting I still get errors. They do appear to be slightly different...

    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...

    Installing LM on a SSD

    I I did get it, after your nudge... i would not have 2 weeks ago... lol. I posted them on iOS. That may be the issue because they were taken upright and rotated, but show sideways... hmm

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Ah apologies atanare was supposed to be a hilarious reference to fun beer moments... no offense intended... my internet sarcasm not coming through. :confused::( After rereading it's definitely not my best delivery, completely wrong :eek::(I am sincerely sorry if it was at all harsh. Yes it...

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Unfortunately you all broke my ability to upload pictures.... they are all rotated now. I think it's auto correcting it. That or atanare ninjaed this all so he doesn't have to get up off the floor when he's passed out to see them. I feel the second is the most likely scenario

    Installing LM on a SSD

    Ok! So I tried the atanare 5 step process and those links were good but it wouldn't let me do anything in the command line as I wasn't in recovery mode. Not sure how to enable this. However I moved to wiz post55 and here is how things played out. Pressing "shift" at boot sidestepped he error...
