Re: VirtualBox 6.x users, read if you have screen resize problems

ahah - - it's seems that Adrian has it right - again
:number1:

that's what was wrong with the Kde respin that I'm running ATM
- - was messing around with install GA & that wasn't working:
it also shouldn't be necessary, either as the GA should be inbuilt into the MX respin.

Re: MX dual boot with preinstalled WIN10

YUP - using that Disk Management utility to shrink the windows partition - is the recommended option. you Do Risk an Error if you Do Use Gparted on win-7 or higher - - to resize that partition.

Re: Dual Boot Help

that article:

does seem more comprehensive, than most related articles, generally are.

Say hello to rootkits, back doors, exploitations, bot networks and all kinds of malware when you run Windows. Great idea. :hitoverhead: you actually can't Turn Off Windows 10 Updates - -...

Re: MX dual boot with preinstalled WIN10

You should now have three partitions. One with windows and two empty. Install the live version of mx first. When you start the installer to actually install on your hard drive, start the MX partitioner. MX is weird at this point. You will have to delete the two drives you just created in Gparted an...

Re: MX dual boot with preinstalled WIN10

it also depend on which Partition Format that you've used:
- assuming that both are 64bit system(s) - this can make an easy task, that more tricky.
