  1. [ubuntu] Re: Dual windows 10 and Linux boot. Can't boot into Linux after install

    It used to be that you could not see drive at all with RST.

    [ubuntu] Re: SSD help

    I used to add my own cron job.
    But now it is a systemd item.

  9. 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.
    How you boot install media is how it installs.

  10. 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.

    And Ubuntu's Ubiquity only installs grub's UEFI boot files into ESP - efi system partition on first drive seen. Usually sda or first NVMe drive....
  11. 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.

    Rufus creates either UEFI or BIOS only versions. You can try that if desired.

    But it should just be a choice in UEFI one time boot menu,...
  12. 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.

    The settings in UEFI apply to all internal drives, so if HDD is an internal drive then UEFI settings of UEFI or...
  13. Re: Install hang on dual boot machine - vfat in scsi7 partition #2 (sdb) at /boot/efi

    How you boot install media is then how it installs or repairs.

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

    If Windows is in BIOS boot mode on MBR drive, you need to install Ubuntu in BIOS boot mode.
    But Microsoft has required vendors to install in UEFI mode to gpt drives since 2012.
    But upgrades from...

  16. [SOLVED] Re: move ubuntu to a new drive does not work

    If you have manually edited fstab and chrooted into it to update grub.
    Or edited all UUID instances of one boot stanza, I would think that would work.

    You should not have to manually add entries.
