Samsung NP300E4A Laptop
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:50:44 pm »
Hello Peppermint people. After having a lot of fun figuring out how to enable boot menu, I finally got P 8 installed as a dual boot with Windows 10. If I keep this laptop, I'll get rid of Windows and go alone with Peppermint. Installation was darn near flawless. After running a timeshift  and aptik restore of my desktop setup into this thing, the only oddball items were a few launcher icons on the panel went to blank, no biggie. There are a few things I have to check out, all in good time. Anyway, here are the specks:

Hi PCNetSpec, yes it was. as you had mentioned, fast boot had to be disabled, but it wasn't in the bios, it's a program in windows.

As I understand it, "Fast Boot" is a UEFI BIOS option (which bypasses some of the power on self test, and hence often your ability to access the BIOS by keyboard shortcut) .. but it is accessible via Windows (8 --> 10).

Primarily by telling Windows to open the UEFI BIOS on next boot

Or are you talking about Windows "Fast Startup", which I think is a different thing

Exactly, I was talking about windows Fast Startup. Once I was able to get into bios, I couldn't see anything that mentioned fast boot, just legacy and Secure Boot.
