Well, I am back home and did all the entries in the Terminal. Here comes the output you needed:

Could somebody tell me if, with this outcome, I can now install Peppermint aside Windows on the inside SSD?
I just don't like to work constantly under Windows ...

Hi Jozef Wolak, it looks to me like you have the disc recognition all straightened out.  If I understand it correctly, you should be able to partition the Toshiba disc  or install to the whole disc. Peppermint 9 doesn't require a swap partition but you might consider a DATA partition.  Those partitions would be sdb1, sdb2 etc.. So when you install, select something else, click on the sdb1 partition of the sdb disc and install the boot loader into the sda disc, I think. You can give that a try or wait until one of the heavy hitters takes a look. Good luck.

You can go into the Windows OS and reduce the size of the main Windows partition. That will give you free space to install Peppermint.

Okay we still have 2 boot entries that are pointing back to the EFI partition (ubuntu and peppermint) .. so as there's currently NO Ubuntu or Peppermint partitions, let's remove those.

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo efibootmgr -Bb 0007
then
Code: [Select]
sudo efibootmgr -Bb 0006
Now boot into Windows and use it's "Disk Management" tool to shrink the "C:" drive by the amount you want to set aside for Peppermint (leaving free space AFTER that partition.

Once that is done, make sure you can still boot into Windows.

If you can .. boot the Peppermint LiveUSB, select "Try Peppermint" and once at the desktop double-click the "Install Peppermint" icon.

Hopefully it'll offer to install Peppermint alongside "Windows into the "free space" without you having to manually partition.

If the installer does not offer this .. or in any way suggests it's going to wipe the drive and install Peppermint, STOP and back out of the installation and let us know.

I made these entries, but couldn't boot anymore. Tried Supergrub2, but it couldn't find any entries. By booting again, I got this errormessage: System Boot Ordert not found. Initializing defaults. Creating boot entry "Boot 0029 (than these numbers were changing, getting higher and higher) with label "ubuntu" for file "\Efi\ubuntu\shim64.efi. Reset System. After that I tried the Windows repair disk, bu didn't succeed  Then I started Peppermint Life an made the entries Hero proposed before:

To Alyur & Murraymint: Thank you for your hints. I put my data always on an external HD, as I use it on different computers.
 And, I did shrink the Windows partition, leaving enough space for windows and for Peppermint 9.

I wonder whether I have to do it all over again, wiping the harddiak, installing Windows again in Uefi-mode (witch I did before) and then installing Peppermint in Uefi-mode. May-be I din't do that, which could have
caused these new problems)?

This has me confused. But again for you and I, this is all a learning experience. I would suggest waiting to see what one of the heavy hitters has to say before starting again from the beginning. It's good that you are willing to start all over though, especially now that you know more about partitioning.

It looks as though you might have booted the live USB in Legacy mode. Is there an option in the BIOS settings to use UEFI boot only?

Yes, it is. When I start the computer, I can choose a menu with the choice of booting in UEFI mode. Thus I installed Windows, but again, maybe I forget to do the same while installing Peppermint.
Anyway, thank you for thinking along with me and yes, it is a learning process .... We are never to old to learn ...

If this is what I was thinking and you did install Peppermint, it looks like you installed Peppermint into the Windows C drive.
