Posted · Original PosterOP

i had made a discusion yesterday in this forum so i learn what os should i install in my laptop and i said that i would install linux mint. i went ahead and instaled it in the laptop and i restarted so i get the booting screen to linux but linux never open insted windows re opened and got a blue screen saying that it will restart and auto correct the mistake the auto correct didnt work and it suggested i format my pc i said yes and it started formating but the format stoped mid way to say to me that the format  was anable to continue and that it will continue to windows but windows were corrupted and the same circle happend around ten times. so i dicided to boot from my usb flass drive that i had windows on it. so i went to the bios selected my usb flass drive and booted only to see that the boot was not continuing it just stayed in a screen showing a dush and nothing else i tryed ressing enter nothing and i re booted with the same usb i got to the same screen and for a split second i saw the windows logo only to fade into the darkness. what can i do

Then you know, that you did not install Mint the right way. But that you corrupted the windows installation you had on there. If you make a mint install usb on another computer. You can install mint. If you don't want your windows anymore (its corrupt anyway) you can remove those partitions too. (Just follow the vid)

 

Also you said to me yesterday in that post, that you where not 60y and it was not a hard learning curve.....

You don't need to be scared. But I would suggest using Rufus for creating media. It's fast and the interface is very easy to understand. It doesn't even need to be installed. Also, it has a Greek translation.

 

  1. Head over to Rufus project website: https://rufus.ie/
  2. Download Rufus in the download section.
  3. Run the executable you just downloaded.
  4. In the Rufus window, just select the device (it will only list removable devices) - the USB flash drive which you want to use. Then select the Linux Mint ISO installation image. Leave other options untouched, defaults are fine.
  5. Click Start and wait for it to finish.
  6. Your media is now ready to use, remove it and continue with the installation.

When asked about 3rd party software, you should check the box - this will allow not open-source drivers which are usually better for newbies - less hassle. Since you corrupted your Windows installation, when asked how to install Mint, just choose erase disk and install Mint - this will erase the whole disk - any files that you had there will be GONE.

The recommendation still stands, newer Windows is always heavier on the resources. You said that you want to use it for web which implies that you need a secure OS, not the old unsupported Windows that won't receive security updates. If you want Windows, 7 is the best for your hardware, 10 is just too resource heavy. W7 support already ended, so Linux is better for your own security.

 

OS installations fail, that's just inevitable. Try again, you can always get back to Windows if it doesn't work. OS installation fails will not brick your laptop, there is nothing to worry about. You just cannot expect keeping your files, I want to make that clear.

I recommend not reinstalling it right now, maybe watch some video's how other people do so. And if you are a little familiar with it. trying it again.

I've just gone over this. You have two PCs. PC A which is your primary PC. PC B is your laptop where you want to do something about the OS.

 

PC A has no risk of being damaged. This is a PC where you create your bootable medium. That process consists of downloading the ISO file and running an app that puts the ISO file onto the flash drive. There is no risk.

 

PC B can only be damaged to the point of losing files. That's all.

 

But if you want to repair your Windows installation, let us know your Windows version.
