Re: 18.3 snapshot installer

I don't know why its not enabling, the output looks reasonable, and right after that listing of drives is when the gui should display with the next button enabled. I think I know why. I tried to boot into persistance mode, and I got an error saying not enough space to make root file system. I thoug...

Re: 18.3 snapshot installer

The one thing that's always been on my mind about this v18.3 is its actually an upgrade from v17 which was a snapshot itself that I made long ago. I booted into the v17 snapshot and its installer works fine.

Re: 18.3 snapshot installer

how long did you let it sit?
I left it running and ran an errand; about a hour.

Re: 18.3 snapshot installer

I've done this multiple times. I don't think I did anything different this time. I wiped drive, booted with snapshot, and made new partition table, and 1 partition, (the whole disk) in gparted. Then used installer. I rebooted when it didn't work the first time. Still no work.

18.3 snapshot installer

Im trying to install a snapshot I made a few weeks ago. When I try to use installer I can't get past first screen. The [NEXT] button is disabled, (grayed out). I don't see a way around this. Is there an alternate way to install a snapshot besides the installer on the desktop?

Re: Genealogy Software

DNA was harvested by law enforcement agencies on GEDmatch.com and they put up a warning and explained how to delete your dna info from their site. I didn't learn a great deal from my dna results at Ancestry. I was mostly curious to see if I was right in my own estimates, and I was extremely close. ...

Boot mode should be selected as UEFI (not legacy). Within the BIOS go to the General > Boot Sequence click Apply.
That's exactly what I have to do with my Dell Precision. Disable secure boot, and if either legacy, or legacy rom is selected you can't select uefi.

efibootmgr

I have an old ubuntu entry in bios boot menu, and have been reading how to remove it. Many solutions involve booting ubuntu from thunbdrive, and using "efibootmgr". I'd rather not mess with ubuntu. Can I do it from MX thumbdrive?
