HP Desktop 260 G4 Mini

Hello i tried to install a SSD in this G4 Mini with MBR(and linuy on it), and tried to change the BIOS using legacy boot supoort.

But ther is no option for doing that? In the Bios there is no legacy boot.

I know this is a boot issue, not strictly a Linux issue,  but HP does not provide support for Linux distros.

IF you replace the preloaded Windows OS with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.


Good Luck
