Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw

Update: with the kind and generous help from fehlix, was able to finally install MX via usb. Was suggested to disconnect all un-necessary usb devices and it worked! :) Can it be that a usb connector for multiple devices is getting too old? - - - - - Latest Rufus 3.3 has the ability to "expose" MD5, ...

Re: How to install on usb?

@skidoo - i have absolutely no gripes against anyone here. In fact, people have always been very polite and the only one who was a twit at times, was me. My recent experiences with MX have been frustrating and i'm sure it has nothing to do with the distro per se. Have installed it at least half a do...

Re: How to install on usb?

Not sure what you mean.
Antix iso burned to DVD-RW reads:
ESD-USB

The .iso per se is on the Windows side.

Re: How to install on usb?

Did burn the .iso to a DVD-RW and installed / and grub to it on usb, but no booting from Win 10. Have installed many distros via usb before, but some reason, as of late, i'm in the gutter with anything MX related. Didn't try to install Antix via DVD-RW but i don't want it on hard disk. Guess i'll ju...

Re: How to install on usb?

Fine.
I think root persistence should be good.
Problem is, the 1st video doesn't say whether to install iso on CD/DVD or on USB.
So, i tried with burning iso with Etcher on a USB 3.0 device and it's not loading via usual F9

Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw

Ran GSmartControl no errors https://snag.gy/9rfqG0.jpg Did notice "networking disabled" and there was no way to edit connection. Think this might be more of an issue than i need. Just to prove how hard i've tried to figure out why things weren't working: Downloaded again latest .iso Burned it to ano...

Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw

"have you checked the hd/sd / ram for failure?" Can you explain that in layman's terms? Partition layout has been pretty the same for various distro tests (LinuxMint, Ubuntu, Manjaro etc.); all on a single / partition (no swap since 8G of RAM are more than sufficient and has worked well so far). Hav...

Maybe the last windows update doesn't like MX?

Re: Trying to install via usb and dvd-rw

The only major change i can think of since last time MX was up and running, is the fact that the etnernet connection on laptop went bonkers.
The computer guy sold me a usb extension for it a week ago, so now it is plugged into a usb port.
