Hello, friend :)
Thanks a bunch for your reply.

After a week trying to make it work, I took all of my rage and spent about
5 hours trying and I made it, somehow.

Had to reinstall it, though, and fix some stuff via GRUB menus. (that was
the most interesting part haha)
It's a new territory for me, so it wasn't easy.

I'm fully operational now, finally.
This is beautiful, I could not recall the last time I had a fast computer
to do my stuff.
