    When I went on to their forum, I saw lots of folks asking the same question about that same card, did not see any real good fixes for the problem thou. Running from a USB I don't have those choices that you just mentioned. So I am hoping that maybe the up coming new release of 17.3 mint might fix this problem.

    I used Ubuntu daily until it went over to the Unity desktop. Can't stand having a smartphone UI on my desktop. So, I switched over to Linux Mint. Now that Ubuntu supports the Mate desktop, I'm back to using it daily. Mint 17.3 is supposed to be coming out this month, according to the Linux Mint Blog.

    I used to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu(I have tried every thing from Arch to Red Hat to Open BSD to... well, you get the idea, but always got back to Ubuntu). Now with Windows 10 I run it in a VM instead.
    I like it because I can customize it how I want it(dark theme) now that patching software doesn't work in Windows 10 anymore(memory patchers and file patchers).
    I also us Ubuntu to go where Windows shouldn't go.

    Have you tried a kernel upgrade? Could help in your case. On Linux Mint 17 kernel upgrades can be done using the Mint Update tool. Kernel upgrades on Linux are usually risk free since in case of a problem you can always boot an older kernel.

    Well that sounds interesting except I can't boot to Linux Mint....on the USB to be able to do anything. I only run Linux mint from my usb.....have not installed Linux on hard drive. All I am trying to do is be able to run Linux Mint from a USB stick. But I have upgraded my graphics card and now Linux Mint will not boot past the 3 choices that Linux mint shows. Already tried two of them. compatibility mode don't work....

    Hi there
    Linux as others have pointed out is the best tool for the job in a lot of situations. IMO if you are usually a Linux user and want to get to grips with Windows the best way to start would be to run Windows as a Virtual Machine on a Linux Host.

    You can use VMware player (free), vbox (free), ZEN server (free) or commercial software such as VMware workstation to set up the virtual machine.

    A good thing about Virtual Machines when learning is that if you hose up the system you can just delete that VM and boot up a new one and it doesn't ruin your existing HOST machine.

    @OldMike65 -- you can easily run CENTOS 7 or OPENSUSE from an external HDD and boot from it - totally not doing anything to your internal HDD's on your main machine. If you have a USB3 port response time is fine -- I run one (CENTOS 7) using an old laptop HDD connected to the USB3 port via a USB3-->SATA connector. Even runs a Windows VM excellently too, Makes a great recovery / diagnostic tool as well. Even on a USB2 port response is adequate.

    (at install time choose correct options for GRUB2 to get the boot totally on the external HDD- and I'd suggest using legacy boot rather than UEFI as the UEFI mode will write the boot info on to the computers internal HDD which is what you don't really want for a true portable system).


    Cheers

    Although we welcome any and all OS users here, you have to be aware that we are not a linux help site and as such this is not the place to discuss linux problems apart from those related to the integration of Linux and windows systems in dual boot or the use of linux boot disks for some types of system failure

    Yes and that is exactly what I used to use my Linux Mint USB stick for Barman58. I read a post on here few weeks ago on how to make a Linux recovery usb boot stick for helping you if you had a problem with your Windows 10. The 1st time I made this Linux recovery disk, it worked great. No problems. Then a week later, I upgraded my graphics card, which works fine with my windows 10 system, but my Linux recovery boot disk (USB Flash drive) no longer would boot. So I was just trying to figure out a work around for this problem. That's all.... Mike...

    Mike a couple of things can hinder you from booting to USB:
    Are you using GPT/UEFI?

    1. Make sure you choose the UEFI PendriveName option at boot, and not just the plain PendriveName option.
    2. Try toggling FastBoot and/or SecureBoot off in BIOS.

    Thanks Cliff, but I know what the problem is, as it was working fine. The problem is Linux Mint does not support some graphic cards right now. And one of the cards that it does not support is the Nvidia GTX 750ti card. Before I upgraded my card I was using the GTX 640 older Nvidia card, with that card installed, Linux Mint worked just fine, no problems. And yes my system is GPT/UEFI but like I said, I had it working fine, until upgrading my graphics card. Which seems to be a known problem with Linux.
