    Sourcing file `/etc/default/grub.d/50_linuxmint.cfg'
    Sourcing file `/etc/default/grub.d/60_mint-theme.cfg'
    Generating grub configuration file ...

    I don't see a Windows installation, so it may have been overwritten. As far as posting images,
    the version of Linux that I am using saves screenshots as a ".png" file, which is an accepted type
    for this forum.

    My GParted looks very much as yours does and Mind shows Windows 10 partition.

    Need help with how to show GParted view to this forum. I can't find a URL nor can find how to use the "image" icon.

    I have Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3

    Please help.

    Thanks again

    Take the screenshot, save it to your Pictures folder, then start your reply, click the image icon and browse to your Pictures folder.

    Click the icon in the Quick Reply window, select "From Computer", then the "Choose files" box, find the screenshot, click "Open", then "Upload file".

    Ben

    When I click "From Computer", nothing happens. I click and click and nothing. It maybe that Linux doesn't show in Windows?

    Sorry to be such a trouble maker. I only have a couple day in Linux and I know very, very little. About only to reboot (sometimes).

    Thanks so much for now!

    Click "From computer", then either "Choose files"(Chrome) or "Browse"(Firefox), then find the image file. By the way, I'm not sure what can be done even if you identify the old Windows partition. I was hoping GRUB could find it.

    Ben

    I have clicked and clicked and then rebooted, and clicked again. When I click on "From Computer" nothing happens.

    I have been asking questions in Linux help forums and the best I've come up with is putting questions (via Terminal) to "grub" is that it should 'Windows'. If it doesn't then I have a problem. (which I thing I think I do).

    I guess the next question is: Do I do a Clean Install of Win 10? And if, what's the best way to do this from Linux?

    Thanks again.

    Here is what I get on Firefox.

    Then I click "Browse" and I see this.

    Then I click on the "Pictures" folder and select the image file and see this.

    Then I click "Upload files"

    My version of Mint actually has a USB writer and a USB formatter in the "Accessories" folder, but i have never used them. I have also heard that Unetbootin can be used.
