I know have been quite again, but have been learning about resizing partitions and resetting boot sequences. So not all is lost. I guess I will be ready this weekend with down loading Linux mint to my 32 Gig stick. But for that I need a bit more help. Thanks to all your help its been an frightening and amazing experience for an 76 yr old codger. Hacodo75
you might be the perfect person to ask. I am a newbie with an acer aspire laptop. I created a partition already, 200mb and installed made neon. My only issue is when I boot it up I do not get the option to choose windows or ideas. It automatically boots into windows unless I go into the bios and change the boot to legacy and restart. But I still can’t choose. If I do that it automatically boots to kde. Driving me nuts!!!
