Well that sucked. Worked, but kept saying the hardware was unsupported. big ass watermark in corner of screen. Would not go away. I read online that I can install an update. did that. Trashed my install. Just throws me in a shell now. I figured I'd end up having to reinstall but damn.. was still hoping not to.
I'm in Linux mint now on another partition. Can't seem to get it to install. It's install, but for some reason it wont kick in. What a pain in the ass. I also need to figure out if there's a way to remove the nvidia driver, maybe that's causing an issue too, but in command line there's no package manage. I have no clue WTF the package would be called.
