Intel active mgm. tech.


I have been given an HP Pro 3500 microtower and have run up against Intel active MGM. tech. when trying to mount linux to the HD. What workarounds are there either software or hardware. Can I mount linux to the HD and return it to the 3500 or any other suggestions before I start experimenting. DR. Frankenware

No idea what you mean by "mount linux to the HD", unless you mean INSTALL Linux on the system. And since you don't tell us what version/distro of Linux you're trying to install, what you've done/tried, what message(s)/error(s) you're getting, we have no idea what to tell you. We can't guess...provide details and we can try to help.

I don't have any idea what this post means. I looked up the HP Pro 3500. Looks like it is a 3rd gen i5/i3 type machine. You should not have any problem installing Linux on that.

Here is a spec sheet for one. Nothing exotic here.

What does that mean? What OS is installed on the box? What are you trying to do?

You may be conflating Intel AMT (part of the Intel Management Engine) with UEFI Secureboot. The former won't prevent you from installing a different OS, the latter shouldnt in most circumstances, if you follow the distribution's documentation on installing with Secureboot enabled.

I'm trying to install linux mint on the hard drive. It has allowed me access to the hard drive utilities and I removed windows op.sys. and repartitioned the drive and can not get linux from disk installation to mount in the new partition. When rooting around the utilities settings I eventually am informed that I am not the system owner. I may be new to this but I am not stupid, just learning. so can anyone direct me to more infomation and scuttlebutt about where I can get info. on HP and Intel concerning this system because they are not very forthcoming with details, naturally. DR. Frankenware.

That's an entertaining narrative, but contains too little technical information.
Please provide some actual error messgaes and the required context, log files, yadda yadda. See the troubleshooting link in my signature.

And oh btw it sounds like you're about to start cursing. Please don't.

Thus far, this is all you have said which describes the problem.

What is "it" and what are "the hard drive utilities"?

So are we to assume that you're booted the installation media and partitioned? Or have you used some other means to do this?

So at some point the installation fails - what is the error?

Start with where you got mint and how you burned the .iso to media. If you are booting it from optical media or usb drive. Is the installer starting or is there an error. You don't mount the installation media, you let the installer run on it. Another words you boot from it, and follow the prompts.

Do you mean that the installer won't partition or put a file system on the machines hard drive?

https://linuxmint-installation-guide....io/en/latest/

You are not trying to install mint form windows are you? Or are you trying to make a virtual machine?
