Okay the even harder way...

Boot to the Peppermint LiveUSB, connect wirelessly (or via an ethernet cable to your router), open a terminal and post back here the output from running these 2 commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
and I'll post you some instructions.



is it worth trying to reinstall peppermint 8?

probably not, the same thing would likely happen .. probably best to just fix this install.

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

That's a lower case L in the first command, not a 1 ;)

Okay boot to the Peppermint 8 LiveUSB, open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
(that's a ONE, not a lower case L this time ;))
then
Code: [Select]
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
then
Code: [Select]
sudo chroot /mnt
then
Code: [Select]
xed /mnt/etc/default/grub
find the line that reads:-
Code: [Select]
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console
and change it to:-
Code: [Select]
GRUB_TERMINAL=console
SAVE the file, and exit the text editor.

Back in the terminal, run:
update-grub
when that completes, hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

Now reboot to test.



Hint - It may be easier to boot the LiveUSB, connect to the internet, visit this page, then you can copy/paste the commands into the terminal ;)

nano /etc/default/grub
In nano, scroll to the bottom using down arrow key.

Add a NEW line at the bottom that reads:
Code: [Select]
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text
then hit Ctrl+X .. then Y then Enter (to save and exit nano)

Back in the terminal, run:
Code: [Select]
update-grub
when that completes, hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

Now reboot to test.

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

If it's a different model you may not need the fix.

If it's the same model, just do what was in my last posting :)



Or do you mean the Aspire One instructions ? .. if so, you probably won't need to do all that stuff unless it's another Aspire One ?
