UEFI mode
« on: October 20, 2016, 06:29:51 am »
Hello. I believe I have done a dumb thing... I decided to install PM7, this time, in UEFI mode... I would like to use BIOS/Legacy mode if possible because I am unable to boot into grub menu with UEFI on, which is important for me. Is there anyway I can make this transition without having to reinstall?

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Note - Please rest assured there is nothing in the output from that command that could be construed as a 'security risk', the '-z' option makes sure of that by filtering out your MAC address.

Yes, it **can** be done, see the last reply here:

But if Peppermint is the only thing installed, it would probably be much easier to just reinstall ;)
