Bad news: this wonderful extension has changed owner and now has been classified as malware by Google.-brotherS (February 04, 2021, 02:03 PM)
Gives me the impression that there is something going wrong with the boot partition on your drive. You better use a proper partition management tool to completely wipe all partitions from that SSD. On Windows my personal preference is MiniTool Partition Wizard. But Acronis is also OK. The partition manager built into Windows itself isn't that great, so I would not use that to wipe a drive clean. GParted on Linux is also OK to wipe all muck from a hard disk.-Shades (December 20, 2020, 03:37 PM)
Sounds like you ended up in the Grub shell environment.
Also, a boot partition on a hard disk needs to have a specific bit set. This is normally managed by the installation software.
All these installation issues make you see Linux from a not so flattering side.
But Windows 10 also comes with its own problems.
My previous response was a little stronger than I intended. I guess I'm still disappointed in my purchase I made all those years ago.-Deozaan (December 17, 2020, 01:12 AM)
One of the most lightweight Linux distributions (with a desktop environment) I remember having success with on my netbook was CrunchBang. Unfortunately it has been discontinued for many years now.
How are you installing Linux?
Do you keep the Windows partition?
Not to offend, but the suggestion of my previous post: get a slightly better laptop and try a full-fledged version of Linux on that, still stands.
All those small Linux distros have one thing in common, compromises in software and functionality in one way or another. Those compromises are likely to bite you in the end, unlike a full version of Linux.
