Thanks,  to fix the original problem, was the key  reinstalling  linux-firmware?

I followed the guidance given of removing the windows HD, installing peppermint, but was suprised when I didn't see a swap drive created on /dev/sdb, but it seems to work ok.  The computer has 8 Gig of ram, is peppermint using half of that as a "swap file (zram)?  I left about 100 GB unused on the Hard drive with the idea of installing another Linux DIstro.  Would it be worthwhile to use * GB of that for a swap file?

Too late to edit it (and change the wallpaper) perknh, I already saw it :o

That's what I was waiting for!!  But even I have difficulty reconciling the iconographies of the two distributions together.  That said, they're still two of the most user-friendly distributions I've seen yet, and both Peppermint and Mint (Cinnamon edition) are works of art.  Different approaches, yes, but works of art.  On both the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed.  Both distributions are polished and attentive to details.  In Peppermint's case, our DE is an improvement upon stock Xfce, -- esp. with the removal of needless redundancies.  While Mint's Cinnamon edition is an improvement upon GNOME 3 in favor of user-friendliness for the ordinary guy and gal.:)

Personally I think Peppermint's panel and menu are easier to work with that Cinnamon's panel and menu -- after configuration!  Out of the box I think Cinnamon's DE is easier to understand if coming directly from Windows.  There's next to no configuring to do with Cinnamon, and THAT is Cinnamon's DE's virtue.  On the other hand, if you take about 5-10 minutes to configure Peppermint's menu and panel, then, after that, EVERYTHING is easier to do in Peppermint from then on.  And, THAT is our DE's virtue. 

Both ways are good.  They're just two different approaches. ;)
