This computer and pep 7 ran perfect!!! Never slow had a few issues that came up but quick fixes and you guys taught me a lot I get picked on because I run 32bit it's an antique D830 still need a 32bit until the gamer computer is ready. Pep is more convenient and more customizable to my software I have for quilts and sewing patterns that don't run with Microsoft windows but do with Pep
I run  Peppermint 8 on a Dell D830 cut me some slack lol I can't afford better than an antique at the! It runs and has for longer than any other I've had

There's no upgrade path, you'll have to back up your files from a live USB and then install the new version.

Would you give us an inxi -Fz please? That way we can see how your partitioned your drive? if you partitioned with a DATA partition, you only need to move the files you want to save over there.  Elsewise, you'll either need to back up your files to some sort of storage, or upload them to the web (dropbox, google drive, onedrive or somesuch) to retrieve after you've updated to peppermint 9 respin.

Also we'd appreciate you marking this thread [SOLVED] since we have already resolved your original issue. You do that by modifying your first post in this thread and adding [SOLVED] to the end of your subject line. After that please post your copy of inxi -Fz in a new thread related to your upgrade process.

Is there any reason you don't just wipe the disk and install Peppermint afresh ?
