I have installed Windows 10 on a new Samsung 870 EVO SSD. I disconnected all other drives before I did this. I want to put my other SSD with a Linux Mint install back into the machine. I have no preference as far as Grub/Windows Boot Manager.
I want to be able to dual boot the system.

Can someone tell me what are some good anti-virus programs for Linux Mint?

Hi. So, if i install Linux Mint on a USB flash drive, connect the USB flash drive to my Windows 10 laptop, start surfing dangerous websites and Linux Mint gets infected with a virus, could Linux pass the virus to Windows through the USB port? If yes, what component will get infected, the BIOS or...
PC has Linux Mint installed on an SSD and a second (blank) HDD.
I'd like to install Windows 10 separately on the HDD.
Can this be done without creating a boot-able USB for Windows 10

I dual-booted Linux Mint and W10 (I was originally on W10) and after dual booting, I have no ethernet connection on W10. I tried reinstalling drivers, but it didn't work at all. Any idea how to solve this?
So I just had to post this here because I couldn't find this solution anywhere else on the internet (unless I'm not looking hard enough)
Quick backstory, I work at a basic phone/computer repair shop, and I have had a few customers come in with computers that wont boot, upon mounting the hard...
I recently tried to install Xubuntu 20.04 onto my system, but for some reason, the installer doesn't detect my 1TB hard drive at all.

Hello everyone. So I used a 32GB flash drive with YUMI to put Mint and Clonezilla on it recently.
When you use YUMI with a flash drive, it creates a partition labeled "MULTIBOOT,."
This is normal and takes up the whole space of the drive.
After using YUMI to...
So, I decided to install Linux Mint on the second HDD which is 80GB big. Windows 10 is installed on the 500GB HDD. Of course I went with dual boot. Now, I want to revive my older system just to play music from it, so I decided to take out 80GB HDD with Linux. Linux runs smoothly on that older...
I'm creating a Linux Mint golden system image with my apps and settings already configured
for deployment to multiple computers. I'll be using the Clonezilla software to do this, unless
there is software out there that is more effective and practical for this purpose.
I'm running Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon on a 2009 Macbook Pro.
