« on: Yesterday at 10:15:16 am »
Might also be worth posting on a pc custom build specific forum.I used one when I was building mine and my parts changed considerably after some very good advice ,unfortunately the Uk one I used is no longer around.

If the OP is worried about not being able to boot back into Windows if Mint is removed then this will fix it.In windows open command and run  BootRec.exe/FixMbr

I would not give up just yet.  I am running a windows 7 and mint 18.2 64bit desk top with very few problems.

Mark would it be a good plan to find out the specs of the system and try a number of live USBs to see which version of Linux is the best.

For me I always find windows takes longer to start then mint.
I'm running a 6 year old machine with W8 pro and Mint 19 with no problems.

Mark ,would he be better off installing Peppermint as he has an older machine?

I have done it the other way around ie installing Mint 19 along side Windows 8 so I'm pretty sure it must be doable the other way round.Worst case scenario would be to back up your  Peppermint install Windows and then reinstall Peppermint as a dual boot.Pretty sure Mark will be able to point you in the right direction.

Update on card reader....It appears that mint doesn't like the xd format of a memory card because when I tried it with a Sd card in the card reader it automatically asked me what I wanted to do with it.Just as well I'm selling the camera that takes xd cards and buying one that uses the more modern sd.
Thanks again Mark for trying.

Not using extension tried different ports as I've said Mark it works on two computers one using W8 and one using W10 so can't see how it could be cable /reader/ card/usb  problem?
It's no big deal Mark as I can get around the problem with windows but if your happy to keep working at it then I'll happily continue with trying to solve the problem.

Still nothing and still not listed under device even though it looks like Linux is now seeing it as mass storage  device
dmesg | tail -n 40 ......producers this result which is different to first result,maybe we're getting somewhere?
