what's a good USB utility to format a PC? whatever I did to that laptop killed both the Windows and Linux installs, so i wanna start from scratch.
I also saw this on my feeds...it now hides in the bazillion tabs I have open, LoL!Stumbled across this article today about another option, Bodhi Linux, I don't think we mentioned. Based on Ubuntu, claims to be another one that makes old computers feel new. Haven't used this distro myself.

hmmm...Secure Boot is greyed out in the BIOS, I can't make any changes. I don't see any 'advanced' mode so not sure how I gain access.Yes, you have to disable it (or import the uefi keys from the media if any option to do this).
I got it figured out and have Secure Boot disabled in the BIOS now and successfully (I think) installed Mint Xfce.If you need to go back to that secure boot setting :
It could also be CSM --> UEFI with CSM" usually means mixed mode in which both native (UEFI) and CSM-based (BIOS) boot is available.
That will disable secure boot.
