Linux Mint 18 was installed on an Intel NUC5i7RYH computer. That PC has a hardware problem so I moved the Samsung EVO 960 SSD to a new NUC7i7BNK, but the second NUC does not boot from the EVO SSD. It does see it in the BIOS as a boot device, and I can boot from an Live USB Flash Drive with Linux Mint installed. How can I boot the second NUC from the EVO SSD?

    So, you added boot-repair from its PPA launchpad.net/~yannubuntu/+archive/ubuntu/boot-repair, ran sudo apt-get update, installed boot-repair, and then ran boot-repair so it would boot with an i7 CPU. Sounds like you could turn that into an answer other folks could use.
