sudo bash script.sh

I think the easiest option is to swap drives and reinstall Ubuntu.

It would be helpful if you could give us a clue for the current partition layout (from Live USB).
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
It is possible that you deleted the partitions off your HDD which could have been used by Ubuntu.
The order of the disks is defined by their connections Disk 1 (sda) = Sata1, Disk 2 (sdb) = Sata2 etc..

You might be able to get that info without opening the case with:
Code: [Select]
sudo dmidecode --type 9
This should list all System Slots on the motherboard.

mount: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'

The exfat filesystem is not installed in Ubuntu/Peppermint by default.
The exFAT is a proprietary and patented by Microsoft.
Try to install it:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Ubuntu / Re: gnome-session-flashback on Ubuntu 14.04

Would not be easier to add that user to the sudoers?
Like this (from your account):
Code: [Select]
sudo usermod -aG sudo <username>
Obviously replace <username> with the real user name.

Once you done then you could remove that user from the sudoers list with:
Code: [Select]
sudo gpasswd  -d <username> sudo

General Help & Advice / Re: PLEASE help me load Linux onto a Dell laptop

That would have worked better with cd ~/Desktop (instead of cd ~/Deskto)

If you are 100% sure that you want to get rid of Windows (and you have all important data backed up) then I would suggest (as there is no easy way to remove Windows 10 and keep Peppermint) to start again with a fresh install of Peppermint. Only this time choose on the "Installation type" screen select the "Erase Disk and install Peppermint" option.

Can you log into the router and see what passphrase was set for the wireless?
I assume the security is WPA-WPA2.
If you have tried the correct passphrase and still would not connect, then (just to prove it is able to connect) disable the wireless security on the router. Once established that it can connect to the router without security, then put your router security back to what it was before.

Prefix the command with sudo
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock all
then repeat Mark's instructions.
Any reason for doing only selected commands (when asked to do all)?

robert@robert-UX301LAB ~ $
Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock 1
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock 2
then
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
If that returns 'Soft blocked: no' for both items then try:
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service 
See if that makes any difference.

I repeat: There is no "Reply", only "Print". I cannot select "Reply" if it isn't there. If I cannot select "Reply" I cannot proceed with paste.

Like how you posted that, you can post the return of the commands (from the terminal) Mark asked for. The Reply button appears (along the bottom of the page) once you have logged into this forum. Are you saying that this is not the case?

Unfortunately no.  Entered sudo.... Answer "[sudo] password for Robert (that's a name I had to enter during or after booting). Not possible to enter anything. Large amount of script following lspci.... so not possible to record it all here. Same with other codes. As a matter of interest how do you manage to emphasise some of the code symbols@

When you enter your password (after sudo) nothing will show, not even ******.
What you enter IS registered and the command will act on it.

No response from start plus ESC. Searched for boot device: "boot device inaccessible". Immediately followed by automatic internet search revealing a number of websites offering assistance.
I expect that you were already booted to Windows by then.
You need to hit "Esc." (only) BEFORE booting into windows, at the bios stage. You need to be quick. Suggest holding down or repeatedly hitting the key immediately after the power button was pressed.
