Hi, I just installed Peppermint OS 8 Respin-2 64-bit on Intel NUC 7i7DNHE, inxi -Fz output attached below.

So far everything looks good (no m.2 drive at the moment, and I did not test Bluetooth yet).

Please advise on applicable tests/benchmarks other than inxi -Fz, I'll be happy to run on this computer any programs Peppermint developers and advanced users may suggest.

Hi regulus and welcome to the nuthouse forum :)

The inxi -Fz output is fine on its own unless you have any problems.

Welcome to the forum!

From my side the only question is do you use Conky?

Thank you, PCNetSpec ... no problems related to Peppermint so far (except that I was silly enough to install Win10 in a separate partition, naively hoping it would behave and restrict itself to that partition only - so then I had to re-install Peppermint from scratch, beginning with the hard disk reformatting).

Thank you, 10i. I haven't used Conky yet, just installed it to try, and now for some reason I cannot find it anywhere in menus (except that it shows in Software Managed as 'installed'). Then I tried to run it from Terminal, and it worked.

conky itself is a command line utility (so won't be in the menu), if you want a GUI front end or it, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install conky-manager
hit enter, then type your password, then hit enter, then "y" then enter.

You'll then find it in the menu at:-

Menu > Accessories > Conky Manager

If you're setting up a dual boot system it's normally best to install Windows FIRST .. otherwise it'll overwrite the Linux GRUB bootloader.

That said, reinstalling the bootloader isn't that difficult .. if you find yourself in that situation again, just ask :)

There is one thing in Windows that actually makes sense, and as such is worth considering for Peppermint - during Win10 installation, when rebooting after fresh Win10 installation from USB Flash (first boot from the hard disk) and the bootable USB Flash with Win10 is still inserted, the message appears "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", if no key is pressed during certain interval, then the system proceeds to boot from the hard disk; but in the same situation Peppermint will just boot from USB Flash again, when logically it should boot freshly installed OS from HD instead, so at this point it would make sense either to warn user to remove USB Flash in order to boot the installed Peppermint from HD, or to provide a similar opportunity to press any key, if another boot from the USB Flash is indeed desired.

Maybe in this case it was possible to restore the bootloader to its original state, I just had a feeling that it was safer to re-install Peppermint from scratch.
