  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

During the installation to continue asks 500 MB boot efi partition which I don't have, if I make a new one since I have dual boot with Windows 8.1 and not having Windows boot iso what would happen next time I will try to boot to Windows 8.1?
Can I move the old boot efi files to new partition and this to be recognized automatically by the Windows 8.1 at the next boot?

Thanks, If you add this nice guide to the other basic guides as a link will be very helpful for new users.
I will come back after the installation to report again.

The installation went well I can boot to Windows 8.1 but not to Mint 20 despite that the grub sees it.
To change the boot/efi partition I had first to put out the flag hidden to the partition with Gparted and then copy and paste the boot and efi folder to the new boot/efi partition. The new boot/efi partition gave also the flags esp and boot like the last boot/efi partition after I deleted the older boot/efi partition, then I selected the installer not to format the new boot/efi partition.
Later I change at the etc/fstab of Mint 20 the new uuid but as I mentioned I can not boot to Mint 20 because the grub menu of pop os don't see it.
