I know it only boots from SATA1 but it should capture both OS in the PC exvept you wiped out Windows during the installation of the Linux OS

I know you are talking about 2 HDDs. DO you have a partition manager in your Linux distro to verify if your Win OS still exist?

i installed grub during the installation process

Then if MS Win was in that PC when you were installing the Linux OS, grub would have detected MS Win and give you an option to boot into it on start up. Is that not the case?

That right there is your issue my friend. I think there is so solution though.
You need to make sure both are plugged in. Boot into Linux and run grub.
You need to scan the entire system with grub to find all OS, that way grub can discover Windows.

I use the download manager extension/plugin on Firefox called Downthemall in place of installing a standalone download manager app.

Saw this quote in an article:

"The Plasma desktop environment has, without Akonadi, become just as light in resource usage as Xfce, perhaps even lighter."


Pretty surprised. Haven't tried KDE in many years.

My interest is piqued

Is there anyone here who runs KDE at present?

would you agree with this claim?

I cant say I have done this comparison to know if KDE is as light as xfce but I can say using KDE Neon for close to a year now has been a smooth experience and yes it feels light on the system. Give any KDE distro a try and see for yourself.

It is very good, I have been using it for years, presently using the 20,000 MAH, just that it takes hours to charge, which is kind of normal due to the size

I need first hand views on running guest OSes in Virtual Box

Is this a feasible idea these days?

Last i tried Virtualbox a few years ago, the performance was too poor, especially graphics wise. couldn't run any sort of games in a VM for instance, no matter how much resources was available to the VM
