Mint 18 installed on SDA1 shows in gparted but not in bios.
Dell Inspiron 11-3152
Pentium N thirty seven hundred @ 1.6
8 gb ram
Ran windows 10 for 9 months - froze and would not boot. "No bootable device".
Installed Mint 18 on one partition. This partition shows in gparted and is flagged "boot".
First HDD does not show in bios.
Ran Boot fix from bootable usb, no improvement
ran Kaspersky rescue from usb. Says it found a heur virus + cleaned. Says 6 files damaged, don't know where or what files.
STRANGE: Machine will occaissionally find the hard drive and boot. First day or so of new Mint install it seemed to work ok until it didn't.
Was disk not cleaned completely when Mint installed <question mark>.
This laptop runs fine off a Linux Mint usb.
Thanks, please advise.
