and confirming, once again, there are no liveUSBs currently attached to this machine :-\

done with dinner, gonna reboot and see what happens...

rebooting with no intervention on my part just takes me back to Win10, waiting for it to fully load {surprisingly slow}

rebooting w/o any liveUSB installed, alt/f2 to get into bios reveals no alternate bootloader is available

rebooting with SuperGrub liveUSB, alt/f2 to bios allows me to set the usb as default

f10 to save and exit takes me back to Win10 with no grub menu...

repeating process but hitting esc to force appearance of GRUB menu...

selecting "Boot Manually

selecting " grub.config - Extract entries" takes me to menu for:

Code: [Select]
...Peppermint GNU Linux
...Advanced Options for Peppermint GNU Linux
...Windows Boot Manager
...System Setup

selecting Advanced... and selecting recovery mode for latest kernel

choosing to update grub config

"continuing will remount your / filesystem in read/write mode and mount any other filesytem define in /etc/fstab do you wish to continue... i hesitate, but say yes...

and enter Peppermint 6 after two more screens...

still no go, unattended reboot, gives me Win10... that's all for tonight folks... epiphanies, ideas, thoughts from other time zones overnight will be greatly appreciated...

 and a few minutes after that reboot... Win10 began an "Automatic Repair" ... methinks its going back to Best Buy on Monday...

Don't send it back .. this is purely an issue with the way you installed Peppermint .. you didn't install it with the EFI version of GRUB so there's no EFi entry for Peppermint, it's fixable ;)
(and in a worst case we'll just reinstall Peppermint properly)

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /boot
and
Code: [Select]
ls /boot/efi
and
Code: [Select]
ls /boot/efi/EFI

I'm only pussy footing through this so as not to break your current ability to boot Peppermint via your USB stick .. It might be easier for us to install grub-customiser, and fix GRUB from there, but we'll get to that in a bit

Good morning!  The Asus has been reset back to factory settings... which I initiated, deciding to start from scratch after the "automatic repair" began last night. As I ponder what to do this morning, I have to make a mental note: as nice as this machine is, it just doesn't perform better nor any faster than my 2012 hp pavilion when p6 is running. Its too heavy to sit with on my lap for very long, as I normally do with the hp.

That's a reminder for me to not get too wrapped up in the lure of a new machine. Its the only exciting bit of hardware that's attracted my attention among the laptops over the last two seasons. Even though I snagged it at very nearly half price, I need to acknowledge we have other things we could be doing with that money.  Other half keeps assuring me the purchase is okay, so ... I think I'll give it another go...

Let me get it running Win10, gosh I'm surprised how slow and molasses like it is...

For clarity's sake, I noticed that the one usb stick, on which I'd installed SuperGrub 2 Beta, has not one but two os's installed, don't ask me how I managed to do that
I get these errors when inserted in the hp:

Code: [Select]
Error mounting /dev/sdb3 at /media/sean/ISOIMAGE: Command-line `mount -t "hfsplus" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdb3" "/media/sean/ISOIMAGE"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb3,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

Code: [Select]
Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /media/sean/ISOIMAGE: Command-line `mount -t "iso9660" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,mode=0400,dmode=0500" "/dev/sdb1" "/media/sean/ISOIMAGE"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: block device /dev/sdb1 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

while the second usb has the latest p6 installed, i'm interested in how to give that persistence after all of this is done...[/color]

I'd like to start from scratch... with your guidance PCNetSpec

and now Win10 setup is finished, is there something else i need to load onto the peppermint6 liveUSB before beginning? I never saw an option for installation of any EFI version of GRUB...

Hi spence,

SUPER!! It sounds like you are on the way to success!  :)

I was well on my way to somewhere, but I'm still more of a n00b, than an expert... my putzing around led me astray somehow or anotherah well... giving it another go

yes, the HP G6 has P6 installed... but not the latest repsi

and fwiw... P6 is STILL installed on the new ASUS... and I am still able to enter the P6 environment, so we may only need to focus on a fix/repair of the bootloader? perhaps?

but i'm fine w/having to reinstall completely
