First of all, I repartitioned my external HDD with CSM enabled just as you asked, then reinstalled Peppermint the way you wanted me to. Then when I restart the computer the GRUB screen shows up again. So I open a live session and do the commands like you told me:

Quote
sudo mount /dev/sdc3 /mnt
then
Code: [Select]
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
then
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
sudo chroot /mnt
then
Code: [Select]
grub-install --recheck /dev/sdc
then
Code: [Select]
update-grub

but then i still get the same error from last time where it says:

Quote
Code: [Select]
peppermint / # grub-install --recheck /dev/sdc
Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
grub-install: error: cannot find EFI directory.

My laptop model is the ASUS X750JA.

Is the 1 TB HDD, Super-Multi DVD, no Bluetooth version

When I posted it, no. So I enabled it and it still showed the same error message.

Code: [Select]
peppermint / # grub-install --recheck /dev/sdc
Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
grub-install: error: cannot find EFI directory.

Is this supposed to happen?

Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sdc5 /mnt
/dev/sdc5 looks like swapspace - not mounted
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
mount: mount point /mnt/dev does not exist
mount: mount point /mnt/dev/pts does not exist
mount: mount point /mnt/proc does not exist
mount: mount point /mnt/sys does not exist
mount: mount point /mnt/run does not exist
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ sudo chroot /mnt
chroot: failed to run command ‘/bin/bash’: No such file or directory
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ grub-install --recheck /dev/sdc
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub-install: error: cannot open directory `/boot/grub/i386-pc': No such file or directory.
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ update-grub
grub-mkconfig: You must run this as root
peppermint@peppermint ~ $ sudo update-grub
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of `/cow'.

Is it supposed to give these outputs?

I had to shutdown my laptop earlier but when I ran
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
just to check if anything changed, i noticed sdd changed to sdc so what do I do now?

I left the original one alone for your question about the 2 Linux partitions, and no unless switch the boot order, or boot from BIOS

Yeah I know but since I will be only using it for Peppermint, I might as well allocate as much space as I can
