Re: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS won't boot without USB Stick
I had the same problem as bkosh. In my case, the problem appeared after a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 in a mini HP 5101 solid-state netbook.
I followed oldfred instructions to the letter. Now I don't need to plug the installation usb stick for the netbook to boot. It's such a relief!
I found also that grub2 still had the usb drive as a reference for major updates, so following oldfred post, I managed to change that as well.
Thank you very much, oldfred. I think this is the first time I get something fixed through a single answer... and without even the need to post the question myself!
Today, I believe in Ubuntu again
Thanks for your patience.
