Hey mate,

Understand totally been there.  Hope you enjoy Mint ;)


Perhaps the best way forward is to create several "Live USBs" that will allow you to try different Linux versions without installing them, and choose the one that appeals most.  When you've backed up your files!  You don't even have to fix your present problems as you need only set the BIOS to boot from a USB. 


You could use this method to get into your hard drive to retrieve lost files -- Puppy comes to mind. Always a good idea to have a toolkit like that if something happens.  Also a great way of altering or replacing a corrupted file with the original off the install iso to restore your system.  Had to do this many times otherwise a re-install.  Just a thought.

Hi Rattle,

I read one of your posts about Lite going t-------s up and only getting commandline did you ever get your files off??

Yes MXLinux/Antix are good choices and Devuan Linux and its Derivatives like Refracta (Good community).
