Also, modern computers introduce choices like Legacy boot vs UEFI boot,
plus there's also Secure boot which I don't think Linux Mint supports.

Checking the BIOS/UEFI settings for various boot options might be a good
idea.  E.g. disable secure boot, and make sure both legacy and UEFI boot
are allowed.
