    Or better yet if it's just for recovery, then a WinPe recovery tool might do the trick too(but this is a bit over my head, probably @Kyhi could help here.
    That would also interest me too Cliff, as we both know Macrium Reflect uses this method, and it works real well. And if its over your head....then its WAY over my head. But still would be interested in how it might be done. :)

    Just so you know, I did install Ubuntu 15.04 using rufus on to a 3.0 flash memory drive, and it booted right up!!! no problems with graphics card. I wanted to see if their was a big difference in 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives anyhow. Was faster booting. :)

    I have 15.10 running a VM, for daily use alongside of Win10, and on a USB for emergencies, such as malware and rootkit cleanup, deleting undeletable files & folders and such. If it can't be done inside of Windows using 7Zip, I use Ubuntu Live session.

    That is on my list of things to learn.....setting up a VM But not today....so many of you guys are using it for all kinds of things, so one of these days I've got to learn how. :)

    With your specs:
    OS Windows10Pro / Win10Pro on 2nd computer
    CPU Intel I7-4770 @340GHz
    Motherboard MS-7826 (Kaili) MSI
    Memory 32GB DDR3 PC3-12800
    Graphics Card Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti

    You could run a few of them at the same time probably and since you're running Win10pro you have Hyper-V. There are tutorials here for that.

    Yes I kinda read some of them already. When I do thou, I might be asking YOU a lot of questions Cliff. But.....that's down the road abit. Right now, I was reading on changing colors.....but......think I'll just wait for the update fer windows 1st. :)

    Yes Barman you are correct my graphics card is far from being the latest release. :) That's why I was surprised to see no support for it in Linux Mint. I just might try your suggestion about Ubuntu too. But right now I think I will just wait to see how Linux Mint 17.3 runs when its released within the next couple weeks. I really liked the features I had with 17.2 with accessing my Windows 10 Pro. Including gpart which could come in handy if I had problems with my Windows 10. Just thought it was a good backup recovery method to have in my "toolbox" incase of problems down the road with my Windows 10. :)
    I doubt Ubuntu will help since Linux Mint is nothing more than a customized Ubuntu. If you want to try something else it should either be Debian (Ubuntu and thus Linux Mint are a based on Debian though) or something completely different like Fedora.

    Well you missed one of my posts then, as I did install Ubuntu 15.04 on a flash drive, and I booted into Ubuntu with no graphic card problems at all. Only Linux Mint gives me problems with my graphics card.

    I'm using the Gandalf 64-bit. Well, I haven't had to use it, but I did check it out and it works.
    Just burn the ISO onto a stick.

    I am a long time Windows and Linux user and I wanted to join the TenForums. I use many linux distros but I also love windows

    I use W10 on my lappy and Linux on my desktop. Soon if I plan to upgrade, the OS for that may also change

    So.. Will you allow me to join your forums and make me feel welcome or burn me with fire?

    PS: Nokia should've kept making Lumias.
    Welcome to the Tenforums. Many of us running Linux and Windows side by side.
    OS is just a tool to solve computing environment problems. Tools will change and evolving into something different as we march into the future. Don't married into one environment only! Select the right tool for your project!
