Hello,

I'm new to Linux, Last night I was trying to install Peppermint 10 in a HP mini 110 netbook. Just after I selected the installing options to receive updates and additional drivers / software, I pressed the Next button and then the installation program ralentized and disabled wifi,  the update otions were no longer valid because there was no wifi  and i was not able to reactivate it, last nignt was the 10th try,  I decided to pospone the installation and ask in this forum if somebody had faced a similar situation, and to ask if this behavior affects the installation process in a wrong way. Thank You.

Reboot and do what your computer says to do to get into your bios... is Fast Boot disabled? If that doesn't show you the grub menu when you restart, then go back into your bios and turn off Secure Boot...

I pressed the Next button and then the installation program ralentized and disabled wifi


Please clarify ralentized?

Apologies for not adding the link to the screenshot tutorial previously. That day I was logged into the forum via my phone.

Hello Spence,

The closest thing to a Secure Boot that I'm finding in BIOS is "Internal Network  Adapter Boot" and is currentrly disabled

Regards.

try turning off the wifi before starting the installer then leave the install updates unchecked during installation and proceed. you can update later once the installers finished. once your done just reboot.
