Hello,

Noon question. If I were to follow us instructors and setup a data partition, would windows be able to read it? I have my setup as windows 10 and PM dual boot

So I'm thinking about setting it up like this

Win10 40Gb
/boot 400mb
/ 40Gb
/mnt/DATA 390 GB
/swap 8Gb

Going to reinstall Windows clean first then work on the partitions for PM7. Is there anything else I should keep in mind?

Thanks

New Users / Re: upgrade from PM6 to PM7 (Solved)
« on: August 25, 2016, 10:46:50 pm »
Got it. Well, then I guess I can wait till i have more time on my hands to back up a few things first.  PM6 is still awesome.  But some of the screen shots for PM7 have me drooling...   :P

New Users / upgrade from PM6 to PM7
« on: August 25, 2016, 10:28:14 pm »
I was doing some random browsing and found that there was PM&???!!  :o  Oh happy birthday to me :D

I am currently running PM6 dualboot with Win10 (I haven't use windows in about a year but can't seem to breakup with it, I have the opposite of commitment issues, just can't let go/break the bad news?) So how should I upgrade to PM7 without loosing files in PM6?  Tried to do forum search the best I can but no luck. Thought that I can't be the only guy with this question so thought that I raise my hand.

Thanks always.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: emachines E725 - PM6 32 bit
« on: March 07, 2016, 12:20:39 pm »
Thanks!  It's been working for a bit and the connection doesn't drop.  I test it out on the USB drive before installing PM6.

almost everything worked after installation. Only needed to install wireless card with some help.

That is one of the selections.  Here are the 4 available in the submenu

Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-62-generic
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-62-generic (recovery mode)
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-46-generic
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-46-generic (recovery mode)

[UPDATE]

So I thought I just select 3.16.0-46-generic and see what happens.  I was able to boot into PM6.  I did all the updates apt-get (update, upgrade, dist-upgrade), saw a few error messages during the upgrade (broken installation, error for missing folders, ect) but all three was completed successfully.  Gave it a restart and this time it automatically boot in PM6.  Installed the wireless driver and it seems to be working now.  So did PM6 fixed itself?   :-\   Awesome  :o

Used the bootable USB and used Gparted to check /dev/sdb5 which is the PM6 partition.  No errors.  I did noticed that in Gparted, it sees the USB boot drive as sda1 and the hard drive as sdb.

here is the output from grub.cfg

Got it !

I don't even know what we are talking about anymore  8)

Prank call, prank call.....

No worries .. personally I just use Kodi for everything.

Just figured out Kodi, It is freaking awesome!!  :o

Should I have concerns about ISP tracking?  Do you use a VPN when running kodi?

Yes, Grub does pull up. 2.02~beta I think.  I can select win7 and boot successfully.  Selecting PM6 gives me the same error as before

Yep, same error. I was pretty sure that's how I tried to install PM6 the first time.   :-\

If i use Cntl+alt+del I would get the same error message i posted before.


I booted using the live USB and ran the two commands you asked me to post before:

Ok, I am going to delete all the partitions and leave it as unallocated space using gparted.  Then, I will reinstall PM6 and use the "install besides Windows" option and not manually allocate space.

I will update after that is done.

I think one is suppose to be boot and the other one is boot.  I use the install besides Windows 7 option the first time and had this error.  I reinstall it using the manual option and got the same thing.  Now I think about it... /boot was suppose to be ext 3 wasn't it?
