Re: Name Point Linux 3

How about Zebo.

PL is that and more.

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

Hey jordan, I know what your saying about Windows 8 and I agree. As far as I'm concerned Windows XP is the best OS they came out with. Since then they have gone down hill. I like Linux from what I have seen so far. I was thinking about making the jump for about 20 years before doing it last month. I...

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

GOOD NEWS, I finally got Wi-Fi working in Point. :D I am only running Point Linux and Windows 8 right now. No longer running Zorin. I still don't have grub boot but that's OK, I am using a USB boot stick to get to Point. Once I am comfortable with Linux I plan to drop Windows all together unless the...

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

Hello again. Thought I'd give you an update. I am now running Zorin 7. I'm running it on a USB thumb drive, as that's the only way I can boot grub. I have WiFi with Zorin without doing anything, as soon as it loaded it detected it. With Zorins grub I can also boot into Point and Windows 8. Still no ...

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

Thanks guys, guess I'll keep trying different distros until I find one that works.
In the meantime I think I'll continue messing with Point to see if I can get it to work. :)

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

I had Ubuntu 13.04 64bit before Point. I liked Ubuntu but didn't like the interface. So, checked out Point and liked everything about it. Didn't realize I couldn't get a boot or WiFi until after the install. Even though I had no WiFi in live I thought I might get it after the install, wrong. I tried...

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

Yesterday I decided to download a new ISO for point. I got the newest, version 2.2. After downloading I ran md5 on it, checked out fine. Ran the live session and noticed I had no WiFi. Plugged in the cat5 line and did the install. Still no WiFi or grub boot. I installed the 64bit, do you think the 3...

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

I plan on staying with it. I am new to Linux but I really like Point. I hope to drop Windows sometime in the future but not until I get used to Point.
Been playing with it quite a bit but a lot more to learn (such as terminal).

Re: No boot & no WiFi after install

OK, I checked and secure boot is disabled. Still only boots from USB, otherwise boots straight to Win8. As far as WiFi, none of those tips helped. I do appreciate your help, any other thoughts? Concerning the boot problem, when I installed Point grub was installed on /dev/sda. I ran gparted and noti...
