Hi Mark

That's brilliant, will installing the peppermint on option 2 be enough? I have installed like that on my machine so that's good news.
Thanks in advance

Hi

I am using peppermint 8 and want to sell 1 of my acer aspire 1 and need to wipe the hard drive but still have peppermint 8 on it. If I install it will it automatically wipe all previous information to as if it were new.

Thank in advance.

well Mark..........what can I say you have done it again and so far so good its all working, I am completing all the updates and see how it is.

I need to do computer number 2, Is it best to just install Peppermint 8 and work through the solutions you have posted to get that one all working too.

Thanks again

Hi Mark

Sorry its taken so long to reply.

I have tried both sets of instructions and it still wont let me do anything.

I hit the ctrl+alt+f2 and it has changed the screen to blue/red/white thin stripes at the top of the screen 3/4 way across from left to right and 2 lines of little dots which I think should be words but isn't due tot the screen.#

I have also tried to install the whole peppermint 8 again and the same thing has happened ........I need help please.

Thanks again

Mark,

Ctrl, alt and f2 opens something up but due to the page being so scrambled i cant see anything and cant type is it worth trying to reinstall peppermint 8?

Hi Mark, i have completed the installation process and it has restarted. When its restarted it has the clock etc in the top right hand corner and 3/4 of the screen from left to right has blue red and grey lines at the top with 3 lines of unreadable white writing. hope this makes sense

Hi Mark

Sorry I don't know a lot about the operating systems so please bare with me.

I am using a acer aspire one with the linpus Linux lite v1.0.9.e that is not good and keeps asking for verified security certificates over and over again.

the bios version is v0.3310.

I downloaded peppermint 6 from your blog and the usb install pen driver. The peppermint seems ok but the usb driver just has the fault I mentioned in the last post.

I really want to get this little gem up and running properly again I have 2 of them and cant leave them alone.

Thanks in advance
Roy
