  4. Re: Installation on external drive messed up boot from internal drive

    Live system:

    The easiest alternative (with for example mkusb) is to clone from the iso file to a USB drive and get a live-only drive. Things will not be saved, so I don't think this is what you...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Can boot persistent liveUSB from laptops but not desktops

    Congratulations to the solution, or should we say workaround :-)

    This makes me think that the problem in this particular computer (with Asrock B450M) is caused by a timing problem or race...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Can boot persistent liveUSB from laptops but not desktops

    Yes, it seems likely a hardware-related problem.


    Sorry, but I don't know anybody who uses a B450M based desktop. Let us hope someone with experience of that kind of computer can chip in and help...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Can boot persistent liveUSB from laptops but not desktops

    Thanks for the details. Unfortunately I still don't understand what is the problem. I can only suggest some more 'trial and error'.

  15. [ubuntu] Re: trouble installing ubuntu to a thumb drive to boot on both Mac and PC hardware

    1. If a persistent live system (according to @ tea for one) works well for you, fine :-)

    In that case there is a problem with this particular computer (and I don't know how to solve it).

    I will answer at that other thread.
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Can boot persistent liveUSB from laptops but not desktops

    Have you tried also booting live (live-only, not persistent)?

    It is possible that the linux kernel cannot manage the hardware of that computer. But let us hope that you can change some setting in...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Can boot persistent liveUSB from laptops but not desktops

    Maybe a problem with the graphics. Did you try with recovery mode or to add the boot option nomodeset at the grub menu?
