Re: Poll - What kernel are you running?

I used to build patched kernels for my T100CHI since 4.3.5, but now any kernel >= 4.16 works well enough for my Intel baytrail that I don't have to anymore. Now I'm using the liquorix kernel.

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

With the unsanctioned workaround, I was able to install MX18.3 to /dev/sda19 with /home on sda20. Grub install failed (complained about error writing NVRAM). I think the conflict comes from the MX-Linux already on sda14 or perhaps the USB install's grub which is still first in boot order. But Manjar...

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

You're welcome! I was beginning to suspect that some status was getting stuck after the boot device partitions, reset by an extra device in the list. Very weird that the partitions weren't all together... I guess that's cruft on an old drive that has been re-partitioned a time or two.

Changing "INSTALL_FROM_ROOT_DEVICE" to true does give me the other partitions.

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

I've now confirmed that blkid and lsblk show all partitions whether on a liveUSB or an installation. minstall shows all suitable partitions when run either from an installation on a HDD or from a liveUSB when a second USB stick is present. If just the liveUSB stick is mounted, minstall does not see ...

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

Am I reading this right that there are 2 issues? 3 issues, if you count the liveUSB boots to "\EFI\BOOT\mmx64.efi - Not Found" unless I manipulate the .efi files in the liveUSB ESP partition. Copying the existing grubx64.efi to mmx64.efi fixes it on my system (my "secure" boot is always off.) A 4th...

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

One last observation on high partition numbers. If I fire up the liveUSB the partitions above 15 are not visible to minstall. If I then plug in another USB stick and restart the installer, then the other partitions ARE visible. When I eject that second USB and restart minstall, the partitions above ...

Re: I want to install MX-18.3 to partition #19 on my HDD, but...

The good news is that the USB stick installation booted without any manipulation of the ESP .efi files. The bad news is that the installer ignored my choice of ESP partition and installed grub to the hard drive not the USB. Boot repair did not give me the option of installing grub to the USB. I also...
