  1. Re: Install 20 on new Mac usb c fails at Grub step

    If an external drive, you probably want an ESP - efi system partition on that drive.
    Ubuntu's Ubiquity will only install to ESP on first internal drive.
    You can then only boot external drive from...

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Moving EFI boot - GRUB from one disk to another

    UEFI uses GUID aka partUUID.
    If you compare partUUID with UEFI entry you will see the same very long number:

    lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,size,fstype,uuid,partuuid | egrep -v...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Moving EFI boot - GRUB from one disk to another

    You normally set a FAT32 partition as the ESP - efi system partition with the esp flag and the boot flag using gparted (right click).
    Only one FAT32 as ESP per drive or device.
    Although some have...
  6. Re: Hard disk disappeared from ubuntu still visible in Win 7 dual boot

    Copying to it may have been a mistake as it overwrote something.

  17. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi

    Again the UEFI boot mode is only for your installed system.

  18. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi

    You booted Ubuntu live installer in UEFI boot mode.

  19. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi

    The Ubuntu ISO is configured for both UEFI or BIOS boot.

    But it should just be a choice in UEFI one time boot menu,...
  20. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi

    If you have the hybrid configured flash drive, it is the way you choose to boot it.

  22. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi
