Yes it has that menu and I choose it. It shows the rt kernel I downloaded and that recovery mode, then the regular kernel and its recovery mode. Select the new kernel and it always goes back to same message, load kernel first, Can only boot by selecting original kernel.

Yes and Advanced options menu only show 5.3.8.28.
Would be nice to download a iso all set up with LinuxMint & CNC ?
It would stop a lot of people from using a lot of aspirin as one fig it out


Ok first things first, don't hassle the Linux Mints guys about any issues with this, ask me :)
Whilst booting it may stall at Rengerating SSL Certificates, hold down the shif key and it will continue.

md5 check sum:

ISO image, either burn to DVD or transfer to USB.

In windows use ONLY Win32Disk Imager to create a bootable USB stick
sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ You will have no issues with Win32DiskImager or use dd under Linux.


Changes that have been made.
RT kernel & headers installed
Linuxcnc 2.9 uspace, dev and EN docs

The following have been added to suit my tastes
Midnight commander has been added
Geany text editor has been added
gFTP has been added a GTK ftp client, has some very nice features.

Finally
A modification has been made to the gimp mime types so it does not open the Linucnc pdf help docs but a pdf viewer.
You will see the kernel messages and boot messages whilst booting the iso, this is to make it easier to see if the boot process is stalling on the aforementioned section.
As per usual Mint iso it can be run as a livecd or installed to disc as per normal Mint way.

This has been tested on VBox and a Lenovo T530 Thinkpad with 12GB RAM.

Feedback back is very much appreciated, or any suggestions, such as removing the libreoffice suit and adding either FreeCAD or librcad.

One thing before I forget, if you elect to update packages please please right click on any kernel packages and mark them as to be ignored.

Thank You for the info on iso -- Downloading --- will use WinUSB v3.7.0.1 to make a USB boot stick and try it out .

WinUSB v3.7.0.1 will not work with Linuxmint CNC 2.9 iso -error Linux Lnitrd file not found on iso .

If you have used that to make a Linux Mint bootable usb stick I guess, but Win32DiskImager is simple and reliable, it doesn't try to be too clever.

What flawour of Mint are you using ?
From what you describe, there is no initrd and vmlinuz created or they are not in the boot folder.
I wonder how did that happen ????
I have installed this same setup over 30 times till now with Mint 19.1 and 19.2 and 19.3 and it never failed.
19.3 is a simple as install Mint, install 2 kona files, install Linuxcnc 2.9. Reboot and hold ctrl/shift.
Thats it.
Again just to be sure, i use Mint 64 bit Mate edition, never tested other versions.

It is mate 19.1. The boot message says the rt kernel has an invalid signature, whatever that means. I think I will wipe out 19.1 and install 19.3 and try again. I did not see the 2.9 version of linuxcnc but will check again. It is Mate 64 bit.

Wrong files.
Try these

I had a feeling I had the wrong files since I was using them from your first post in 2018. I just burned a usb stick with 19.3 mate 64 and I will see how it goes. Thanks so much!

Ok, I have mate 19.3 installed and running. I installed the headers and image from the links you sent. Do I need a new link for the kernel? And the link for linuxcnc 2.9. Thanks
