This is being posted from mint mate.

 

Some observations.  Secure boot was still disabled but I went ahead and changed the boot order. That I had apparently changed back.

Now I never found any compatability mode. There was a legacy mode but the help file showed that if chosen UEFI would take precedence any way so I changed nothing there.

 

This is a bit different but I think I may like it.

 

I did not think to ask how to end the session and get back into cinnamon.  Heck of a time to ask. lol

Hope you're not still stuck there dannyboy, just noticed this Topic.

 

Question - have you actually installed the LMM (Mint Mate) or are you just using the usb stick under a Live scenario?

I think I've answered that myself, saw you at hollowface's Topic.

 

Answer - Menu-Quit-Shutdown. Remove USB stick, reboot.

If you have powered off first, that is academic. You can safely remove a USB stick from any PC not switched on.

 

If you chose "restart", rather than "shutdown", you would either have to pop out the stick between end of session and BIOS kicking in on the next, or else start tapping the key that takes you into BIOS and choose "Boot from HDD".

 

Hope that's clear?

 

Later

Very clear. I just wonder if a boot manager might be more efficient.  Al-tho I do not know if that would even work with a live session involved.

Nor I - others know more about Boot Managers, but I have not heard of it.

This is the only way I know of using a boot manager with a live session:

How to boot an ISO from HDD using Grub2

I'm not sure what you mean by "more efficient," but if you take the time spent following the tutorial into account, it would be more efficient to not use a boot manager as well as easier.
