  2. [all variants] Re: Can you test booting into an nvme drive?

    Hi VMC,

    Interesting to read about your problems with nvme. It seems to me that your Acer computer was made before the manufacturer knew the technology well enough to make a robust system.

  5. Re: I cannot format or copy files into USB pendrive

    If you tried with mkusb to wipe the first mibibyte of the pendrive, and it failed, I don't think it will be possible to write an iso image or anything else. I think that the drive failed after those...

    I'm sorry, it seems your USB pendrive is damaged beyond repair, when it does not allow wiping the first mibibyte.

    Re: PPA's that aren't current

    There is no independent or organized or systematic testing of the PPAs, so in general, you take a risk, when you use them. With that said,

    - several PPAs are well maintained and have a good...

  21. [ubuntu] Re: A particular PC fails to boot any Ubuntu Live version

    I think DD mode will work with Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, but probably not with for example 12.04.1 LTS. Do you mean 16.04 LTS? 6.04 is really too old. Anyway, good luck :-)
