However, I noticed after the Raid 5 array was completely formatted and automounted that /dev/md0 no longer exists. It seems to have changed to /dev/md127. This is no problem because I automount using the UUID as you showed. But, say I want to create a second Raid 5 array. Should I use md0 again with the mdadm --create step? Can I damage the original array if I reuse md0?

I guess technically Apple could sue someone for breach of the TOS, as it is considered a contract, but it is not something any government would pursue if there is no such legal action.

Then again, we might be wrong, we are not lawyers.

Comment on How to Install Wine in Linux Mint / Ubuntu to Run Windows Apps by diacad https://www.pcsteps.com/10463-install-wine-linux-mint-ubuntu-run-windows-apps/#comment-4525 Mon, 24 Sep 2018 13:42:00 +0000 https://www.pcsteps.com/?p=10463#comment-4525 I am using Mint 18.2 - I have an Epson ET-7750 printer which does have Linux driver, except they do not include the feature to print CDs/DVDs on this machine, which the Windows version does. I have no desire to run or use any other Windows programs. I suspect that Wine does not work well supporting Windows hardware drivers - is it worth the trouble trying? Thanks for any information.

My PC is pretty good.

If you tried with High Sierra and you had no problem, then the new version might cause the problem.

Comment on Install Ubuntu Linux 17.04 Alongside Windows, or By Itself by cgenter https://www.pcsteps.com/961-install-ubuntu-linux-windows/#comment-4477 Tue, 11 Sep 2018 23:35:00 +0000 https://www.pcsteps.com/?p=961#comment-4477 I realize this discussion is 3 yrs old, but this response is the most relevant I've seen in 2 days of searching. It seems that all the available info on Linux installs is for replacing Windows, or dual booting on one hard drive. I have 2 SSD's (1 120GB with Windows for personal use, 1 512GB for work), and a 1TB HHD for storage. I want to install Linux on the 512GB SSD, and keep Windows where it is on the other SSD. I've already created a bootable USB with Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. It does work properly. During installation, I get to the partitions screen and cancel because I've read conflicting views on how to proceed. It sounds like, from the comment above, I can simply select the SSD (dev/sdc in my case) and click 'install now'? No partitioning necessary? I think I read somewhere above that Angelos recommended choosing the SAME device for bootloader even if Linux is going on a 2nd SSD? I can't believe how incredibly confusing it has been to figure this out. I hope ANYONE from this old post sees this and can help.

Hey I am running VMware Workstation 12 Pro (12.5.7) and I get this error when I am adding the *.vmdk that I downloaded from the link. Is my issue that I am running Pro instead of Player or that when I do run Player that it is not in the x86 folder but the 64 bit folder?

One question before I try...is the touch screen mode supported in the MacOS VMWare environment? Thank you!
