    I have an Toshiba satellite c55-a5104 laptop that I installed newest antix on. I told the installer to use the whole disk will everything seemed to go ok (I installed from a live usb stick) but when. I rebooted with usb stick out to go to the new install the screen said checking for media and the computer would not boot to the hard drive, it would only reboot with the usb stick in place. Is there anything that can be done to fix this . Thank

    Boot the live usb, and use the bootrepair app.
    Make sure you install grub to the MBR of the hard drive.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Thanks for your quick reply , I tried that several time and it don”t work when I used the ESP and turned off the secure boot option it started right up. I fact I’m responding to this using mu new antiX install.
