I think it works, Mint 18 xfce. Have installed clonezilla from the mint package manager, called it [sudo clonezilla] and it opened.
This is awesome!

Warning. The Linux kernel is a critical element of the system. To do the upgrade costs when one of your hardware devices is not working properly, and the new kernel may fix this problem. But at the same time installing a new kernel unnecessarily can lead to undesirable regressions, such as: no network connection, no sound or even the inability to boot the system, so install a new kernel on your own risk.

Installing the Linux Kernel 4.8.2 into Linux Mint or others Ubuntu distrs:
Reminder to users of computers with Nvidia/AMD. Before installing the kernel, it is advisable to switch to the free driver.
1. Open a terminal, copy and run one of the commands according to the architecture of your system/computer, at your own risk:
For 32-bit (single command):
cd /tmp; wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-headers-4.8.2-040802_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-headers-4.8.2-040802-generic_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_i386.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-image-4.8.2-040802-generic_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_i386.deb; sudo dpkg -i *.deb
For 64-bit (single command):
cd /tmp; wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-headers-4.8.2-040802_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-headers-4.8.2-040802-generic_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.2/linux-image-4.8.2-040802-generic_4.8.2-040802.201610161339_amd64.deb; sudo dpkg -i *.deb
2. Update GRUB (GRUB need to upgrade the Linux system where it is installed, if you have more than one)
sudo update-grub
Note If you have a boot loader installed BURG, and it should be updated:
sudo update-burg

3. At the end of the installation, close all applications and restart the computer the following command:
sudo reboot
Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:
uname -r
If you decide to delete the kernel 4.8.2,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.8.2-*
3. And again update GRUB or BURG
sudo update-grub
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
Good Luck!!!
