  1. [ubuntu] Re: How to install Ubuntu 14.04 from a USB drive

    To create a usb media with the iso, use a program like "startup disk creator", or unetbootin. Even dd would work if your media is perfect. Reboot from the usb, and you may try or install Ubuntu.
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Help - Full Disk Encrypted Ubuntu 14.04 x64 (full install) on USB stick

    Check your current boot entries with sudo efibootmgr -v , something has probably replaced the shim entry with grubx64, which of course is not signed by Microsoft, and will fail, but then their...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Upgrade GRUB Failure

    The UEFI bootloaders are just sitting in a FAT filesystem on the EFI partition. Ubuntu's bootloaders (shim.efi and/or grubx64.efi) should be sitting in /EFI/ubuntu on that partition. If the ubuntu...

    Assuming you already have the EFI partition and a Windows partition, your Ubuntu partitions could be:
    1)Forget the /boot, there is no longer a need in most cases to try to position the kernels near...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu installation hangs on 'Where are you?' screen

    Did you hashcheck the downloaded iso file with md5sum? That should always be done before doing anything else with the iso.

    Re: installing ubuntu on usb lenovo yoga pro 2

    This is a UEFI machine, so to install to a USB, I use a gpt partition table, have the 300M FAT bootable EFI partition, then add the root and swap (but I usually skip swap on flash usb drives). Then...

    Re: How to sign Kernel

    So you are trying to add a later kernel to 13.10. You don't sign the kernels, Canonical does, so you need to download the right package. The package install should run update-grub and create a new...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Install 13.10 aside windows8.1 from usb drive on HP ultrabook

    On the Windows side, did you turn off dynamic partitions, raid, and fast boot? You should see disk partitions if nothing is interferring.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: What is the easiest way to move grub from sdb to sda.

    I think just
    sudo efibootmgr -o 0000,0001
    might do it, but I've never done it myself.
    Check with the -v afterwards.

    Re: Installation hang on HP Pavilion laptop

    Try a USB install if you can. DVD's can get dirty and have reliability problems.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: What is the easiest way to move grub from sdb to sda.

    Sorry for the confusion. From your pics, the Windows bootloader (Boot0000) is second, so you probably want to move it to first place. I expected to see other entries in the list for "EFI USB...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: What is the easiest way to move grub from sdb to sda.

    Was this done on a UEFI machine? If so, maybe the nvram got changed by the USB install, even though there is nothing that should have changed in it. From Ubuntu, install and run efibootmgr -v and...

    Re: HP 110-243wb

    You might try the 14.04 nightly build, it's pretty much like 12.04, and might just work for you. There might be various tips on this site for HPs, each machine has it's quirks.

    Re: HP 110-243wb

    Was that 12.04.4? Anything before 12.04.2 will not work for you. A later release might work, 14.04 will be out next month. Did you hashcheck the downloads with md5sum? Did you do a media check...

  20. [ubuntu] Re: Toshiba L50-A-16HNL: Black screen after selecting Install Ubuntu

    You can try the options one at a time and maybe in combinations by replacing the "quiet splash", which will allow more error messages to be seen too.

    [ubuntu] Re: HP Pavilion g6 overheating

    Dust can build up over time and block the air flow needed for cooling. Check that the vents are not blocked either, both on the bottom and sides.

    Re: install only to USB HDD having GPT

    If you're going to go gpt, why not just put on a 300M (left empty) partition for future UEFI machines. I think the bios_grub partition can be smaller, 1M is what I've heard -- core.img is only 27k,...
