Re: fde with luks during installation

IS this FDE similar to LUKS option . . . is this a full clean install or an upgrade or reinstall?

Re: Solus3 ruins uefi-grub-menu

I don't multiboot this way, but from what's been explained in this and earlier threads, I believe selecting the Windows Boot Manager will display a menu of all uefi compatible os's installed on your Toshiba. However, if that doesn't list all installed OS's . . . reboot and try each in turn to see th...

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

Craig . . . the OP (northstar) originally had Solus on sda5 . . . and overwrote that with Feren.

He should do what he's comfortable with and leave well enough alone - - not worth fubar'ing your system.

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

Franz . . . did you read the post just above this one from David. He changed his boot loader to allow the Windows boot loader to call the Solus Bootloader . . .

Congratulations to David for a job well done.

Perhaps that's something you could try also!

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

To Davidbe . . . Before submitting your post, it would have been helpful to take Ikey's advice and actually try/test the bootloader timeout option. It would have eliminated at least one variable. To NorthStar . . . Can you provide a clear screen shot of your HDD/SSD topography? I want to see your pa...

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

In my view, if this was a major problem, there would be substantially more complaints as Kyrios & Ikey have indicated. In that case, they would have fixed the issue because it is in their interest to have satisfied Solus users. But what cannot be determined remotely is exactly how you installed the ...

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

Herr NorthStar, ALL OEM's including Toshiba are "required" to have this feature IF they are compliant with the UEFI specification. Note . . . they are required to have that feature . . . but sometimes that option is hidden on a screen not available to you without doing what I describe below. On my A...

Re: Solus3 destroyed my grub-menu, only Solus3 will boot

Achtung achtung Herr NorthStar! Perhaps I can clarify two or three points: > Solus on a UEFI/GPT machine does not use Grub - or make changes to already installed Grub files including the last "Controlling Grub" . . . so your other OS's and files are still in their installed locations on the disk(s)....

Re: Wi-Fi Adapter rtl8192cu

Couple solutions: > Buy Panda Ultra b/g/n nano dongle for $10 usd. Uses Ralink wifi and is plug and play for most linux distros including Solus > Buy a portable usbv3 SSD (like the Sandisk 500 Extreme 120 - - about $75 usd) and install Solus from Live usb flash stick to the Sandisk 500. Then can tes...
