Many thanks for testing. I am glad that you was able to boot the live DVD.kilaueabart wrote:Well, if you are reading this, that means I was able to boot my new DVD, and also to find my Hyperion password on the password list on my original HD install of MATE.
If the default installer doesn't work for you, then you can open the new install script via the command ubunu-install but I think you don't need to install ubuntu MATE again because you have already installed it.kilaueabart wrote: Later, I decided to find out for myself, and tried running the install program figuring I could stop at any point. It dies immediately without doing anything.
Yes, that's right. After saving the data via the DVD, you can install it with ubunu-install again.kilaueabart wrote: Otherwise, apparently the only value to having the disk is as backup in case my working MATE crashes. I might be able to save data from it via this DVD install even if I can no longer boot the one I use now.
My pleasure.kilaueabart wrote: Anyway, very interesting experience. Thanks, Christian, for making it possible.
Please test the DVD too.
