    Re: Can fdisk ignore certain devices?

    You can use parted to see gpt partitioned drives.
    But with RAID & LVM you have to use those tools to see them.

    or
    sudo parted /dev/sdc unit s print

    Re: 14.04 Upgrade GRUB Error with UEFI

    That is then just like what Boot-Repair does. It renames the Windows efi boot file. But then you have to add a boot stanza to grub to have it boot the renamed file as grub2's os-prober just finds the...

    [kubuntu] Re: windows 8.1/ ubuntu 12.04 lts dual boot

    I think Windows has all the languages in the efi partition. Those probably are those. But entire partition at top level should be easy to copy.

    Typical folders in /efi for booting.

    Re: 14.04 Upgrade GRUB Error with UEFI

    UEFI has menu.
    Grub has menu which it seems you now get to. From grub menu can you boot both Ubuntu and Windows?

    With that you boot...
  10. Re: Ubuntu Server 14.04 install Grub won't install (fatal error) in Raid 1 setup

    With RAID you do not install to a drive like sda but to a /mapper which is your RAID. And not to a partition in your RAID.

    Depending on type of RAID you may need dmraid or mdadm drivers.

    With UEFI you use gpt(GUID) partitioning not the old MBR(msdos) partitioning. With gpt there still is a MBR with one partition entry saying it is gpt, so old partition tools like fdisk do not attempt...

    Perhaps that is why we have to always make sure we purge installs of nVidia when installed from a different source as they install to different locations?
