  1. [SOLVED] Re: How do I get Ubuntu 14.10 64bit Desktop to auto boot on an EFI system?

    Sorry for the errors in my earlier post, I corrected them, and some others too. The order is /EFI/Microsoft/Boot. With double quotes around the path string, only one backslash is needed, as oldfred...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How do I get Ubuntu 14.10 64bit Desktop to auto boot on an EFI system?

    To fool HP's broken UEFI implementation, put into nvram:
    sudo efibootmgr -c -L "Windows Boot Manager" -l "\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi" (reversed order fixed, extra \ s removed)
    Case is not...
  3. Re: Persistence size USB-drive (Live USB-stick)

    Well the 39748 answer looks pretty complete. How are you creating the USB? If you put a 4G FAT partition on your (larger) usb, and make the rest an big ext2 partition. You may create a normal...

    Re: Installation of ubuntu using a USB Drive

    Furthermore, some new UEFI machines (e.g. Asus X200CA) seem to require that secure boot be turned off before USB will boot, even when it is first in the boot order.

    Re: Need Help pls

    The error says you are missing the file raw_files (or maybe wav/raw_files, not sure how sphinx works with the -di). With the ls command, do you see it? Try ls wav/* next and see it it's there.

    I do like to set up my partitions and format them with the filesystem I want (ext4 usually) before running the installer. gdisk on your live media should allow you to partition and then you may add...

    [ubuntu] Re: Odd problem during Live CD install

    The F6 option is only available on non-UEFI boots, so you have to edit the grub commands directly. Instructions are at the bottom of the screen, but you just type "e" to edit, then on the linux...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Grub issue when installing Ubuntu 14.04 from DVD

    What video card do you have in the system? You might need a proprietary driver. Can you switch to a virtual terminal (function keys F2 - F6) with the command
    Ctrl-Alt-F2

    [ubuntu] Re: Will boot from DVD but wont open Install

    Guessing some sort of error on the DVD. Did you burn it as slowly as possible? Run a media check on it if you ever get to the menu offering it.

    Take a look at question http://askubuntu.com/questions/522177/intel-amd-hybrid-graphics-on-ubuntu-14-04
    Looks like 14.10 might be necessary.

    Try turning off secure boot too, an Asus x200 just wont boot from USB with secure boot enabled.
  13. Re: Is it possible to make a persistent installation on USB thumbstick?

    Bug 1159016, Persistence not working for UEFI boots, is still a problem on the live media. You can fix it by editing the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and adding the word persistent to the linux lines...

    Add yourself to bug 1265192 "Install/reinstall wipes out all/other partitions". I hope you had backups.
  15. Re: How do I get rid of Ubuntu 14.04 without screwing up my Windows 7 intstall

    And if repairing the Windows MBR fails, you can always move the grub files to one of the FAT Windows tools or system partitions -- just make a directory /boot and install grub there.

  17. [SOLVED] Re: [BOOT] Problem on install Ubuntu 14.04 and Windows 8.1

    You could use efibootmgr to add a nvram boot entry for Ubuntu if you don't already have one. efibootmgr can also change the boot order, so grub is first (since it might be present, but not in first...

    [ubuntu] Re: External Hard Drive (HD)

    The disk in the enclosure is not being seen, so plug/unplug it a few times to see if you got a bad connection. Worst case would be there is no disk at all in the box!
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Completely delete Ubuntu 14.04 LTS UEFI and restore Windows 8.1 bootloader

    Just use efibootmgr to change the boot order to put Windows first. Then you will not see grub. If you wanted to totally remove grub, there is no MBR to deal with in a UEFI machine, just remove the...

    Re: usb install error....grrrr!!!

    Did you hashcheck the downloaded iso? I'm not sure what a media check on the USB would do, but it couldn't hurt either.
  22. [ubuntu] Re: cannot boot from USB just blank screen and no GRUB

    Rufus has lots of options, which can be incompatible with UEFI booting. I have no experience with it myself, but it does more than you'd need for creating a bootable USB from an ISO. A UEFI boot...

    Re: Error after fresh install

    Sounds like a bad block. From the live media, run sudo mke2fs -c -c (on wherever you mount the partition) to remake the filesystem skipping bad blocks. Then reinstall and see it that helps. Thats...
