    [ubuntu] Re: Boot-repair error

    "SATA Operation" is already set as AHCI
    Model is Dell Inspiron 15z 5523, about 8 months old.

    How do I find out what error boot-repair is finding?

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot-repair error

    FYI, I do NOT have windows loaded. Currently, I only have one OS loaded, 14.04.

    So update. I made the recommended chage of "mfstdata" to "boot", I loaded 14.04, and boot-repair now runs longer...

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot-repair error

    It's a Dell Inspiron 15z. I don't remember it being marketed/sold as an ultrabook. It believe it does have an internal SSD on the mother board.

    So change the flag on /dev/sd1 from "msftdata" to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot-repair error

    That's interesting, because my "bios" screens say I'm booting in UEFI, non-legacy.

    Is there another way to tell how I booted (UEFI or BIOS) other than using boot-repair?

    Thanks, but I'm not trying to install. Install, boot, etc all works fine.

    First, thanks for your help! I must be doing something simple wrong. Here are my boot settings. I read this as I'm booting in UEFI secure mode:

    I'm not intentionally trying to boot into BIOS or convert to BIOS. Does boot-repair not work with UEFI boot? Documentation states that it does. All I'm trying to do is use boot-repair to reinstall...

    Great idea.

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/391312/gdisk-vs-parted-error-inconsistency
  14. [SOLVED] Re: New laptop, clean SSD, UEFI, and gparted error

    Well, after running gdisk, and using the 'w' command, gparted/parted still shows an error, gdisk does not. So there's still a decrepancy between what gdisk and parted are reporting.
  15. [SOLVED] Re: New laptop, clean SSD, UEFI, and gparted error

    Thanks, I'll leave it as FAT32, and marked this as solved!! (Even with the descrepancy between 'parted' and 'gdisk'.)

    Thanks again for all the great and timely help!!
  16. [SOLVED] Re: New laptop, clean SSD, UEFI, and gparted error

    Follow up question:

    Yes, same error using gparted.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: New laptop, clean SSD, UEFI, and gparted error

  19. [SOLVED] Re: New laptop, clean SSD, UEFI, and gparted error

    gdisk shows nothing wrong.
    parted (and gparted) still shows corrupted backup table.
    Dare I write table to disk using gdisk 'w' command?
