 8) Yes! So glad I stuck with Peppermint! It's so much faster on this old thing! And I have 2 back ups....one on usb stick one on cdrom. Not going through this again! And thanks again guys!!! I could NOT have done it without you that is for sure! My bluetooth headset did not work on 7 but it does on 8 on this old thing!!! It's a new toy and it works but the wifi doesn't so I have to stay hardwired but that was a problem the last time on 7 also but when I walk to the bathroom now my computer shuts down so I'm guessing I don't have the "distance" set right 40 so the length of the house was underestimated at least from my "gamer's station"-"office"to the back of the house. I still have little tweaks...like on my vlc media player and a few others but for the most part it's running great!! Again....spence....pin...all of you thanks so much!!! This experience just gained Peppermint 8 4 new clients they're bringing their laptops here for me to do the work on but I made them all get usb sticks that were ready already I'm not going through all that again either so that's 5 Peppermint 8s to install now in the next 3 days....should be fun!  :-* Thanks again all of you!!! you made this so much easier on me!!!!

From my side, you are more than welcome.
Keep up the passion there!
Just curious here, and probably an issue for another topic, but you said... wifi not working?!
What's the output of

Glad you finally got it straightened out. Peppermint has it's own USB Stick Formatter and USB Image Writer. Your friends can bring you a blank usb stick and you can create the bootable stick from your computer. In fact, with the usb stick mounted, you can right click on the Peppermint 8 Iso file, assuming you have downloaded one to your computer, and click on make bootable usb stick, doesn't get much easier than that.
What was I thinking?
