Janus Desktop
« on: May 06, 2019, 09:21:59 pm »
Hello peppermint people. I just got a new computer. It came with a 1tb spinner hard drive with windows installed. I thought I was going to have problems with secure boot and all of that so I wanted to figure it all out before I swapped the hard drive for my SSD with P 9 and others all ready to go. I never did figure how to get into bios but I did figure out how to boot a usb memory. So I tried dual booting with windows just for the hell of it, installation failed due to boot loader not being installed so I just went ahead and let P 9 installer erase the disk. All went well and it booted up fine so I went ahead and swapped the hard drives. This is the new computer:

Glad to hear its all working for you alynur :)

{EDIT]

According to the manual here:
https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/A320M-PRO-M2#down-manual
to enter the BIOS on that motherboard, simply hit the [Del / Delete] key.

Looking good, I'm getting my parts for a new build delivered this Friday. Will be videoing the build and putting of course Peppermint 9 Respin on it. It's going to be a Ryzen 5 2600 build and I just know that Peppermint will just fly, even more so than it already does.  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Thanks PCNetSpec, I was looking for something like this but couldn't find it, pressing Delete does get me into bios.  :)

Hi clatterfordslim, Peppermint is pretty quick on this machine. I'm very satisfied with this "in the middle" version of AMD. It is plenty good for what I use it for.   :)

On Amazon about a year after getting the F2A85-V PRO motherboard, someone was selling one for 8000 pounds, yeah good luck with that one, was my reply. Can no longer get this motherboard on Amazon UK, I don't know about the US site?  ;D
