Meant to reply to this one a while ago. Holding F2 from the very beginning was the answer. Only I have one of those annoying keyboards that makes you hold down another key to use the function keys, so that's why it didn't work initially maybe.

Computer is back up and running, by files are safe (as usual) but I'm still trying to find a decent backup solution so that I'm not always having to restore my software and reinstall all my applications. I'm going to try LuckyBackup with a formatted external hard drive and see if that works.

Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. Have since installed a 32-bit Peppermint on an old Vista laptop for a friend of mine and it works great! "Like new" she said.

:-)

Yep, if only Opera had an --app mode I'd consider bunging it in, but kinda pointless if it can't do SSB's :(

Ya gotta love Ray Bilcliff's photos though :o

You sure do, PCNetSpec.  They're the best.  ;)

coyote, it's nice seeing that Opera icon on the panel of your Peppermint 7 Respin screen shot.  Peppermint and Opera browser get along just fine. :)

I know that would solve the issue but most of the computers given to me have either Windows 8 or Windows 10 on them and so I generally wind up selling them and rat hole the money.

Everyone wants to buy Microsoft Windows computers and I can't give a Linux computer away for free.

I have a Beebox with a Celeron J, and another with a Celeron N .. never actually tested how the power button acts on them, but I'll see if I can reproduce your systems behaviour tomorrow.

Hey if you're happy with it, it doesn't matter what others think .. Peppermint is there to be customised to YOUR taste, it's kinda the point in our ethos :)

Ya gotta love Ray Bilcliff's photos though :o

Nicely done :)
