Dont know if this is the place to post but here goes. I need instruction on reinstalling from original CD from Linux. I am on a Gateway Lap Top with Windos 10 OS which has locked up with no communication with it. I just put the new Linux Mint on the drive and I was in business. So many mistakes in useing Mint, all my fault, has rendered it as somewhat unstable. I want to start over. I have changed the boot priority to cd drive and tried and it appears that I am running from that cd with no offer to replace existing mint os. What ya think?
