So I managed to dual boot and haven't upgraded Peppermint 8, partly because it ran so well and partly because I didn't have or make the time to do so.

I'm going to backup my data tomorrow, then try to "upgrade" to Peppermint 10.

I currently have the following partitions:

Windows 10
/Peppermint (can't remember if it's / or /home)
/swap (6 GB)

If I delete my Peppermint partition and create a new partition and install Peppermint 10 alongside Windows 10, then all should (hopefully) be fine?  8)

From within Peppermint 8, can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -land
Code: [Select]
blkidand
Code: [Select]
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "Booted using UEFI" || echo "Booted using Legacy BIOS"and when you boot, how do you choose which OS to boot into ?

Thanks, will post the output soonest.
Working today.

The grub menu shows Peppermint to boot from by default, and also shows Windows 10.

Hi, sorry it's been so long. I can't access the Peppermint website or forum from my ISP at home. Just says page not found. Every other website I have tried works.

Will use my phone as a Hotspot and try again  8)

So I managed to delete the partition Peppermint 8 was on, chose "Something else" during install and preserved my dual boot.

Weird thing, the UCT Ubuntu server (the server in Cape Town, South Africa) is the slowest I have seen to date. It took 15 minutes to download 15 MB of updates. It took longer to download the updates, than it did to install Peppermint 10.

Changed to a different server after install and much better now.
