Re: WLAN (WIFI) works under MX-16.1, MX-17 does not

with my MSI laptop mx 17 wifi doesnt work ( along with other problems)

MX 16 WiFi works fine - no need to use FN + F11 ( in my case) to turn WiFi on or off - network manager does this fine. May take a little time but it works.

Now running MX 16 again - see my other recent posts r this MSI laptop.

sounds to me like your user doesn't "own" (have permissions) to access the drive.

Re: laptop wont boot - again

Re: laptop wont boot - again

I was using 4.13.0-1-amd64. I've just tried recovering the mbr using a Win 10 install DVD ( from when it was firs...

Re: laptop wont boot - again

Thanks for the replies and advice. 1) Don't get GRUB menu - possibly because SSD boots to quickly 2)BIOS is set to Legacy mode 3)BIOS is set to AHCI 4) can't press CTRL - ALT - F1 - also probably due to SSD fast boot. 5) F3 gives MAC address then hangs on DHCP 6) Possibly you just need the "nomodese...
