Mint Booting problem!

Recommended Posts

Try advanced option and there should be a compatibility or rescue mode. 

 

You can install Ubuntu as dual boot but it can get messy if you want to uninstall it while keeping mint.

No there is no compatibility or rescue mode at all,IMG_20190919_194400bb.thumb.jpg.b64ecb09538dbc0256b78a0e66eead7b.jpg only after clicking on advanced (as below" that brings up "recovery mode" then normal boot into mint, the way i'm doing it now

I'm in Thailand in Suphanburi province. I would fix your pc for free if I could access it but you are probably too far.

A quick thing you can try is ctrl+alt+F1 (or F2,F3,F4). A couple seconds after the screen get blank. That should switch you to another console. If this work then you have issue with the graphic driver. If your internet is working I can give you a command to connect to my server then I can fix it from there.

Tried the cntr alt f1,2,3,4, nothing happened, if you can give me the where withall to connect with your server that would be just great, and very kind of you, presumably you just tap it into the terminal, correct?

I will document how to force boot into console in case there is issue with the video driver.

 

From the grub menu press "e" for edit mode.

This is the default boot code:

Remove the "quiet" and add a "3" at then end of the line starting with "linux". 

 

IMG_20190921_115628.jpg

 

Press F10 to boot. Now it should boot directly to the console. From there we can start to fix your issue.

Change to the grub menu are not persistent and will revert to default on next boot.

You did it! You can now login using your username and password. I added you on line since it will be faster this way.
