  1. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    By selecting /dev/sda you are installing it to the HD itself and not a specific partition. It's better to select an actual partition such as /dev/sda1. Select the same partition that you are going...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    Alright. It may be that your GRUB didn't install correctly last time.

    Make sure when you are going through the install, you select the correct partition for the GRUB to be installed on and you...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    Alright, that's good about the boot flag.

    And no worries with the GRUB sequence. Below is a link to another thread and if you look about half way down the first thread you will see a quote from...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    If you run a fdisk -l, does the partition show up with a * next to it indicating that it is flagged as a boot partition?

    Also, by the sounds of that error, it looks like your GRUB didn't install...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    That's interesting. Try opening up a terminal windows and type:

    gksudo gparted
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Install to USB flash won't boot, "No partition active"

    Try starting up gparted and looking at your USB drive. Based on your fdsik results, it shows that none of your partitions are flagged as the boot partition. You should be able to set this in...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Dell Latitude E6500 - problems with hibernation, touchpad and virtual consoles

    Welcome,

    Well, I can't help you with all the questions, but with question # 2 with the touchpad I may be able to.

    It seems that gsnaptics relies on SHMconfig to run properly and it must be...

    [ubuntu] Re: vista HDD partiton

    Just a tip for resizing:
    It's always wise to defrag your drive a few times to ensure the most amount of free space is in one block. That will help prevent against data loss during the resize.

    [ubuntu] Re: CD boots but cannot install.

    Yes, even if the cd was bad it could still boot and some even begin the install process.

    You may want to try to burn another CD, possibly using another program that will burn it even slower. I've...

    [ubuntu] Re: total noob: need wireless help

    Still no luck even with the wired connection?

    If you can get the wired connection, then the wireless shouldn't be too hard after that.

    [ubuntu] Re: I hate GRUB.

    So you installed the restricted drivers and then what happened? What's the resolution problem?

    Also did you try the xfix option?

    [ubuntu] Re: I hate GRUB.

    Wow, thanks Jim. I completely missed where he mentioned the Ubuntu loading bar on my first read.

    Cadeyrn,
    Yeah, you're problem certainly isn't the GRUB then. Sorry I didn't catch that.

    [ubuntu] Re: I hate GRUB.

    If you use the Super Grub Disk you shouldn't need the Ubuntu Live CD. Just download the Super Grub Disk .iso and burn it to a cd and reboot with it in your tray. If you have to, press the...

    [other] Re: Linux and windows problems on dell laptop

    More than likely the problem is that Windows does not recognize your HD because it is partitioned in Ex3 format for Ubuntu. What you can try doing is using a LiveCD to partition a portion of your HD...

    Understandable with a slow connection.

    I don't know if you got the chance to take a look at the Super Grub Disk, but it's only around a 4mb download so that shouldn't be too painful. At least...

    The Super Grub Disk works great or if you really wanted to, you could download and burn your own version of the Ubuntu LiveCD.

    If you're going to be using Ubuntu, I recommend keeping a current...
