@arochester linked to the page that describes installing Slax to hard drive or USB. It can be done, but it's different than other distros. He also pointed out the Slax's developer continues to make improvements and provide new drivers for hardware, but obviously he hasn't caught up to your wireless yet. A later version may work out of the box, but you may need to put in some effort to make it work on your own. It can be done, but it may be a lot of trouble for you.The first isn't so bad its Slax can't be installed on a hard drive, yes or no? That I don't get why not. The second part is a must. Slax doesn't recognize my wifi card and its the only way I can use my system or otherwise it serves no purpose
Well, Mint Cinnamon was easy, I think. You double-click on an install icon on the live desktop, answer a few questions, and in less than a half-hour you have a system comparable to Windows 10, with all of your hardware working, including wireless, and complete with a wide array of useful software to help you achieve the common goals of most computer users, including a very well developed Office Suite... all for free. It actually doesn't get much easier, or cheaper, than that.So far from what I have learned using Linux? Linux sure doesn't make things easy lol
Actually, no, UEFI mode is the default. This is a long story (going back about 10 years or so) and a bit much to cover here. Microsoft (who else?) required UEFI compliant motherboards from the big manufacturers just before Win 8 came out. And it's been a long road for Linux to be able to catch up to that technology. In fact, there are still some distros that cannot use UEFI today. Luckily, most motherboards do allow you to disable it in BIOS... but not all. And the means to disable it vary between manufacturers... it is sometimes very weird. Those are minority cases though. Most times you simply change a setting, save changes, and exit the BIOS setup.Isn't Legacy mode in all computer the default?
Source https://web.sas.upenn.edu/jasonrw/2016/04/07/uefi-and-a-dell-optiplex-990/The OptiPlex 990 has the ability to use a BIOS-based system or UEFI, but not both. Each are mutually exclusive to the OptiPlex 990.
I know it's one or the other and its a pain let me tell you ... But, when I select the default option it goes to legacy option, not UEFISource https://web.sas.upenn.edu/jasonrw/2016/04/07/uefi-and-a-dell-optiplex-990/
Makes for an interesting read.
You're better off with legacy bios mode than UEFI bios mode imo.I know it's one or the other and its a pain let me tell you ... But, when I select the default option it goes to legacy option, not UEFI
