    [SOLVED] Re: Intel Graphics Drivers not installing?

    Also, do check for any firmware updates from your motherboard mfg. Even a new machine may be several firmware versions behind, and those updates may fix these sorts of problems.

    [SOLVED] Re: Intel Graphics Drivers not installing?

    You're right, no need to add i915 to modules if it's already loaded. My video does have in addition, a thinkpad_acpi, so maybe something along the lines of acpi=0 on the kernel boot line (edit grub...

    Re: External drive boot issue UEFI

    Grub-install works just fine, it installs to where you tell it, and upgrades should be fine. Just the Ubuntu installer suffers from TMC (Too Much Code) and thinks it is so smart it can ignore user...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: how to option and what to run last OS used?

    Don't confuse the EFI boot menu with the grub menu. EFI boots a bootloader (grub, shim, windows/bootmgfw, etc. from its nvram) or a device with a default bootloader (no nvram needed). the "ubuntu"...
