    (initramfs) - Laptop blacked out / HELP

    @nik-Ken_Bah Hello and thanking you lots. Really overwhelmed with kind of support and understanding like never experienced before. Especially liking the quotes - old but yet so young and absolutely accurate. Try to enjoy Mint experience, hopefully with new spirit and patience.

I like your explanation very much, I can comprehend and I try doing the same - of course, in a field that has got not much to do with computers. I like your attitude very much and the...

I will try to go back to step one, insert the USB to laptop, try to boot from there and see what comes...

    (initramfs) - Laptop blacked out / HELP

    It's flashing now. So, in general, I have to use the Flash-version on USB of the Linux Mint software to recover/reboot the laptop later? Why doesn't the downloaded Linux software do, it's already an .iso file, right?

    (initramfs) - Laptop blacked out / HELP

    I can't even open the downloaded file on the Mac. I'm really done here, really frustrated and doubting. I'm anxious to fuck up my Mac as well. Reason why I followed YouTube tutorial was that I wanted to have a clean re-installation of Linux. I had so many troubles with it, no Bluetooth, mail...

    I downloaded "linuxmint-19.3-cinnamon-64bit & balenaEtcher-1.5.81-x64.AppImage" and have it on stick. What now? "Write the iso to this drive" - what does it mean? Or can I just start booting with selecting F12, selecting USB and "ENTER"? I might as well learn doing it right, if you don't mind...

    Unbelievable.....you were absolutely right all along......the drive is empty. Probably left it inside when messing around with laptop before I lost everything. What now? Download Linux Mint Cinnamon on my Mac and move it to USB? Then boot again?

    (initramfs) - Laptop blacked out / HELP

    But how can I do that? I've got no idea. I'm sure it's the right USB. It's as I initially mentioned, I'm useless with this, never should have tried it in the first place. I'm suffering the consequences since quite some time. Do I have to write this laptop completely off, any chance to try...
