Installation / PC with no HDD: How do I boot up in New HDD?
« on: December 16, 2017, 05:19:10 pm »
I bought a cheap PC without an HDD, and I bought a used HDD separate. 

Now I need to connect them. 

How do I do it, and which distro is the best one for the job?  Also why is it the best one for the job?

And last of all how do I know if the PC is 64bit or 32bit?


Thanks

So could it have been done without erasing? 

I think plenty of others are going to do it.  Bet I could google it, and find a strew of people on forums saying the bit it.

Actually the warning was what I was going to talk to the forum about. 

When I went to apply it, the warning said that it would wipe out the computer.  I had no idea what it would wipe out the data stick because it did not mention.  I'm not as avid as some people might be nor previously experienced with a Linux before.

If I were writing the OS, I'd make sure that people knew that before hitting <ok>. 

How do we tell the guys that write the programs to make that warning specify that the medium for the bootable "image" or whatever will be blow out out the data stick or disc medium?  I mean let people know specifically that it is going to blow up their stick or disc.

USB Image Writer or USB Stick Formatter.  One of those. 

They look different on the 8 OS than on the 7 OS, so I'm not sure.

I downloaded the 64bit OS. 

There was a USB stick write app, and I used that to load the OS onto the stick. 

I did the reboot, and installed. 

Looked on my USB stick, and it looks like the OS killed all of my data.

Well, I installed Peppermint 8.  I think I hit a problem though. 

When I made my USB stick into the medium for the Pmint 8 OS, it appears that it erased not only the whole laptop, but it erased my USB stick. 

Can you tell me that is not the case?  I had a ton of information on there.  Is it gone?

When I do back up my data, what is the fastest, best way?  I mean do I cut and paste into a flash drive or something, or is there a way to do a total dump out into the drive some how?

I know this probably sounds like the chicken asking how to get to the other sidewalk on the other side of the street, but I'm stuck. 

I have the 7 32bit on a Dell Latitude D630, and I need to put a 64bit on here.  I might as well make it the 8 OS. 

So how do I do this?  Is this a huge feat, or is it very easy?  I'm a chicken, so be gentle.   ;)

Okay.  I'm just going to stick with FF and DuckDuckGo.  This is not my laptop, but I was figuring out the sound problem for him.  He'll take it like it is as long as he knows how to use it. 


Thanks for the help.  :)

With Chrome open .. fire up:-

Menu > Sound & Video > PulseAudio Volume Control

Select the "Playback" tab.

Is Chrome muted ?


It looks like there is nothing about Chrome on that volume Control window like you said.  I had looked here earlier, and there was nothing here, so I just went with there was a problem because there was nothing anywhere to adjust. 

I gathered on another platform that this is a 32bit Peppermint 7 OS, and Google dropped 32 bit a while back.  The suggestion was that I needed to upgrade to a 64bit disotros.

I have 2GB in the RAM.  Which disotros should I get, and where is a safe place to download it from? 

There's so many disotros, and I'm 100% new to Linux this week, but I think I like it better than the other OS systems.

This is not my computer.  I'm helping a old friend.  It's a Dell D630 laptop with Peppermint 7 on it.  32bit.

I thought the audio card was shot, and I did some tests.  It was alright. 

I remembered that google browser is kind of buggy sometimes for certain things, but things usually work on Firefox, and this was one of those times.  Video audio from youtube on the FF browser works, but video audio from the Google browser doesn't work.  It's all youtube videos. 

What could be causing this problem? 


Thanks
