Thanks all  - the desktop is 2 years old now! Hadn't realised the specs were still considered particularly fast (though it obvs is compared with my netbook and laptop). I use the desktop for gaming (Guild Wars 2 and Civ 5) and in the past when I was freelancing, for some Adobe Creative Suite stuff. I really like Peppermint (and playing around in Linux) but for gaming and for my former freelance work - it is preferable for me to do it in Win7 (hence the duel boot).

Hmm. Hadn't realised I was only running a 32bit version of Peppermint  :-[. I do have the 64bt version of Windows 7 on there. When Peppermint 5 comes out I will go 64bit.

Yeh, the machine has been super fast and it was a major upgrade from my old desktop. The SSD especially makes a big diff, but the processor is fast too. Was my first home-build and quite fun to do. The GFX card was/is also decent and it's enjoyable to play games with the settings maxed or near maxed. Nice to see it apparently isn't dating yet!!

Hardware / Re: Can't get SATA enclosure to work in Linux [Solved]
« on: May 07, 2014, 10:29:43 am »
Hi Mark, seems to be working now (I'm on the desktop). I think it was a loose connection (this is a dirt-cheap somewhat crappy enclosure) between the USB going into the enc. Didn't work initially (same as laptop) but having fiddled with the USB and pushed it in further it is now working (odd as the enc was whirring to show it was connected beforehand and last night - but obvs not a good connection). But it is now working and I can see the 2x partitions on there and open/copy files.

So possibly it was user-error?  :D Thanks for your help anyway.

Thanks will try a).   ;)

Hmm I used to use USB Installer in the past when I first got into Linux but according to my system I seem to now be using YUMI! Not sure if one is better than the other though assume they're very similar? Will try the Universal installer again.

Thanks for looking into it.

Tomorrow I will boot-into Peppermint on my desktop (duel boot, won't need the USB stick) then attach the enc and see what readouts I get.

216
Oh, I hadn't noticed that persistence slider in YUMI. Will have a look. Thanks!

Re: difference between the two - I just need a full Peppermint I can boot from USB (only) that remembers settings (wi-fi etc) and I can install a few extra progs to. So it's a bit like a standalone system that lives on a 4GB USB.

Hi guys  ;D

Peppermint is the only OS on my netbook.
I have duel boot on my desktop (Win7/Peppermint)
But on my laptop (used to be duel boot) I now only really want Win7 on the SSD (it's also encrypted) rather than having two OS on the SSD.

However, I still like fiddling in Linux on the laptop now and again. I can just use the USB (liveCD version) which I am doing as I type this - but it doesn't remember any settings so I have to re-configure wifi each time, etc.

Is it possible to install a persistent installation of Peppermint to a USB that can be used as a standalone system? I have a 4GB USB stick I would like to do this to (if it's possible).

Thanks in advance.

Native SSD is 256GB (encrypted)
USB LiveCD (Peppermint) is 2 GB
Old HD in the enclosure is 500GB total partitioned into 250GB each

Am fairly sure the enclosure is not showing at all in that fdisk readout I pasted. I have also tried different distros on LiveCD and in none can I get the enclosure to show.

Hardware / Can't get SATA enclosure to work in Linux [Solved]
« on: May 06, 2014, 01:18:23 pm »
Hi guys

My laptop HD was dying not long ago (endless BSODs) so I swapped it out for an SSD and it's all now good (it runs Win7; Peppermint is on the Netbook).

I picked up a very cheap 2.5" SATA enclosure (USB2.0) and this works fine on Win7. I have got most of my old files off so am not facing a data issue as such - but when mounted to Win7 I still get BSODs after a while.

So I thought I'd try it on Linux but I can't get Linux to recognise the drive (it's a two partion drive).

Just wondering if this is a hardware limitation or if there is something I can try? The badly written instruction that came with the enclosure states compatibility with  xp/vista/win and Mac but nothing about Linux. So perhaps that is why. But was just wondering if there was anything to try. Gparted won't show the drive and nor does fdisk. So I'm assuming it's a driver issue?

Thanks if you can help.
