    [ubuntu] Re: Issue removing old kernels (disk not full)

    Did you try any of the --force-thing options, like maybe --force-remove-reinstreq ?
  2. Re: Help please! After upgrading xUbuntu, I get this error at boot (screenshot PIC)

    Did you try rebooting from an older kernel in the grub menu (maybe under advanced options) or a try one of the recovery option boots?

    Re: Openjdk 9 install fails

    Looks like in ...9 that file got added to headless, it's not in the 8 headless, so no conflict. If you were not starting with no 9 packages, I'd remove them all and reinstall. I use 8, so I don't...

    Re: Can't install ubuntu. Bios error?

    Can you take your hard disk out of the laptop, put it into an USB enclosure, and read it on another machine? What does the SMART report say about the disk? (smartmontools package, sudo smartctl -a...

    [xubuntu] Re: Ubuntu can not detect windows partition

    From the Windows disk manager, do the partitions have a type "dynamic" or "basic". Dynamic partitions are not seen by Ubuntu. Search around for "dynamic partition conversion to basic", it's pretty...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu installation alongside windows 10

    Also check that your machine is not using something called "dynamic partitions", which are not recognized by the Ubuntu installer. Those type of partitions would need to be converted to
    "basic"...

    Re: grub2 with 2 disks drives

    Is this a UEFI machine? If so, maybe D's the disk's EFI partition. Is the second disk "removable" like USB? If so, check that the second disk's /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi is a copy of grubx64.efi...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Partitions wiped out on Dell Latitude D410, Cannot Boot or Install

    Somehow you got the syslinux bootloader onto the hard disk. I'd try to reinstall grub onto sda. There are lots of detailed instructions for that here in the forums or at askubuntu.com.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Partitions wiped out on Dell Latitude D410, Cannot Boot or Install

    Are you sure you're booting off the CD? Looks like a failed disk boot (expected if you wiped the partitions(.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Seeking advice & confirmation for manual partitioning: UEFI, 14.04, no other OS

    Size and type is OK, but I think the EFI partition must be a primary on an MSDOS partitioned disk.
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Dual boot windows 10 with Ubuntu on new Asus Core i3 Laptop

    Windows 8 and 10 instructions are pretty much the same. There may be a boot speed/delay option in BIOS/UEFI Settings which is best to normal/non-zero so you have a chance to hit a function key at...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Dual Boot Windows 10 with Ubuntu no grub

    From Ubuntu, run sudo efibootmgr -v to see the boot order, then you may change the order to what you want with efibootmgr, see instructions from the man pages: man efibootmgr.
  16. Re: error message in installation "Force UEFI Installation?" ubuntu 16.04

    Maybe a leftover MBR bootloader is confusing the installer. If there is really no other OS on the machine (other disks?), just force UEFI if that's what you want.

    [SOLVED] Re: /boot partition for new ssd install?

    It's more the BIOS not being able to address blocks beyond a certain limit. An old problem when disks grew more quickly than firmware, but maybe becoming relevant with the 4T disks again.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: W10 UEFI secure boot - dual boot Ubuntu 16.04

    Ubuntu has no trouble installing UEFI on machines following the UEFI standard. Some machines do not, however, so you might have to play vendor specific games like renaming the bootloader or boot EFI...

    Any day now the 14.04 LTS will get the 16.04 upgrade offer. Be careful -- what you describe doing may wipe your entire disk. Maybe the fix is finally in to stop offering a "reinstall" in such...

  22. [SOLVED] Re: Boot-Repair seems to succeed but still boot into Windows 10

    Look in the Boot directory (usually seen at /boot/efi/EFI/Boot). The ...bkp file was the original one that boot-repair renamed (probably the Windows boot manager). The bootx64.efi boot-repair...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Boot-Repair seems to succeed but still boot into Windows 10

    Forget legacy boot, you're UEFI. Your order seems to have ubuntu first (0002), OK. The boot flag is on the EFI partition, OK. Nothing obviously wrong. One thing to check, the /EFI/Boot/ directory...

    From a terminal type vlc or from the DASH launcher, type vlc in the search bar to find the VLC media player (click on it). There might be some plugin required to play yout specific file though.
