before i reboot... let me add that Synaptic tells me I have bits and pieces of yet another kernel...
Code: [Select]
linux-tools-common 4.4.0-72.93
linux-headers-4.4.0-72  4.4.0-72.93
and a few other lines...  ending with 4.4.0-72.93

going to attend to your prior instructions now...

No that ".93" in
Code: [Select]
linux-headers-4.4.0-72  4.4.0-72.93
is unimportant .. it still the headers for the 4.4.0-72 kernel .. the ".93" is just minor versioning.

so I should mark those 72.93 bits for removal too?

My First unattended reboot once again brought me to the locked motherboard options screen. REISUB does not work from here, so I did another hard reboot holding down the shift key. That once again bypassed the Peppermint Grub menu & turned up something about loading the 4.4.0.66 ramdisk.

Also, is there a reason it takes 20 minutes for update-initramfs every freaking time?

Whoa .. you shouldn't have uninstalled "linux-generic" .. that will stop you receiving ANY future kernel updates.

Unless this is what you want I'd reinstall that
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-generic
problem is that'll probably pull in the 4.4.0-72 kernel again, if it does do not reboot yet .. instead run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove ---purge linux-image-4.4.0-72-generic
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove

the other option would be to use mintupdate to remove the kernel.

Erm "update-initramfs" takes under 30 seconds for me (on the 4.8 kernel though) .. so NO.

  :) Hurray, nice sub 30 second reboots.... did two, the second holding down the shift key still doesn't give me the Peppermint Grub menu, 3rd reboot was 24 seconds. Synaptic reveals I still have linux-headers, linux-headers generic, linux-lib-dev along with a few other bits for 4.4.0-72.87 & .93 hanging around...

but i suppose its best to leave all of that alone since I had swift unattended reboots?

still not VinDSL swift though  :-\

The other 2 need to stay, but you can loose the left over configs for linux-image-extra-4.4.0-72-generic with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-image-extra-4.4.0-72-generic
if you want.

The "rc" at the beginning of this line means the package itself has been Removed, but the Config files are still present
Code: [Select]
rc  linux-image-extra-4.4.0-72-generic          4.4.0-72.93                                amd64        Linux kernel extra modules for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
Purging it also removed the leftover config files ;)
