    In just five minutes installed UBUNTU from this ISO ubuntu-16.04.5-desktop-i386.iso which is a 32bit one I think and all up and running. When I try with this one ubuntu-18.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso it fails every time?

    Must be something to do with the Lenovo!

    Tried linuxmint-19.1-cinnamon-64bit.iso and linuxmint-18.3-cinnamon-64bit.iso both stop with just the mint logo on screen.

    When these installs fail......are you left with Windows 10 being still there ?

    If this is the case.....then read HERE

    This maybe a silly question but here goes. What is the difference between 32bit and 64 bit is it the address bus? If so when I install a 32bit system on my machine does it ever access the higher memory addresses?

    Just a thought. I have run the memory checks when I see them all came back Ok.

    Neither installed at all but thankfully windows 10 is gone as UBUNTU 32 bit does easily install. It has even removed the rather disconcerting message that "Windows Has Not Loaded Correctly" when I did the first install!

    There is no such thing as a silly question, Dave....I am unable to answer it .....I do not know.

    The link I inserted at Post #25....have a read through that and see if it makes any sense to you.....I dont think it can do any harm

    zzzzz time where I am.

    I will check in tomorrow morning my time

    There are others here who will see the topic on the main board

    If @atanere were to swing by, he may help greatly. The fact that I have linked his name will ensure that he sees it.

    Thanks condobloke

    I have tried that link but nothing of help, I had seen that before I think.

    One thing I will do before ZZZZ is to try once again and watch all the messages as carefully as I can. just in case as the thought in my mind is a memory fault at the high end but it has been so long since I dealt with hardware (40 years ago) that I forget.

    Hopefully get it going still under warrenty at least.

    Kind regards

    Have you entered the bios of your computers and changed from the efi / uefi and secure boot crap to legacy boot or AHCI no guarantee this will make any difference.

    Some computers don't work well with Linux because of all of that efi / uefi and secure boot crap I may be way off base here although worth a try imo.

    Thanks poorguy tried all that had to before I could even get it to redcognise the usb stick!

    May give up on the lenovo. Does anyone have experience of dual boot? I have a 64bit system (win 7.0) can I have this as a dual boot with LINUX? I have 50G disk space and 2g RAM

    Thanks for the thread I have allready read all of that.

    Also downloaded the Lenovo bootable diagnostics and run all tests everything passed.

    32bit working fine just not 64bit.

    I have now managed to install linux mint 19.1 (64bit) as a dual boot on another computer all absolutly fine just a couple of heart stopping moments but working now, just need to find all the dependencies I need for my developing environment.

    Using terminal I get this message

    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    I just do not have a clue about all this.

    PS if posted in wrong place please change to the right place.

    Can anyone make sense of all that?

    G'day Dave, morning Tom :)

    Dave what was the command you issued at Terminal which gave you the missing dependencies output?

    Were you trying too install a package, if so, which?

    Cheers

    and....have you activated the firewall ?

    ENABLE FIREWALL
    sudo ufw enable
    sudo ufw status

    Open Terminal (ctrl alt T) will open it......the copy and paste what i have typed in below in red.......

    sudo ufw enable

    ....then hit enter.
    you will be prompted for your password....type it in (you will not see ANY response when you type......just put the password in, this is normal)....and hit enter again

    Thats it. Nothing else is necessary.
    The firewall will now be turned ON each and every time you startup or reboot

    If you feel the need to check if it is on.....
    sudo ufw status will let you know that it is active. Thats it.

    Welcome to the wonderfully simple world of Linux.

    That is the official Linux Mint method. I find easier is

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/sudoers.d/0pwfeedback
    and then put a # in front of the first and only line, (which comments it out)

    Save and exit works fine. If you want to change your mind later, repeat the command, delete the hash, save and exit.
