    [ubuntu] Re: SSD help

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

    fred@z170-focal-k:~$ systemctl status fstrim.timer

    I do change mount in fstab to use noatime.
    Be sure to have good backups as once...
  2. 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.

    Every brand UEFI is different, but screen shot shows two entries for Toshiba flash...
  3. 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....
  4. 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,...
  5. 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...
  6. 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.

    Some tools that create installer like Rufus create either a BIOS/MBR installer only or a UEFI/gpt installer only. Other tools create...
  7. 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...

    Good to know, going to add Optane to title so future searches may find it, also.
  9. [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.

    If UEFI you have have to edit...

  11. [SOLVED] Re: No recommended repair option in boot repair

    Is drive still in Intel RST? It should be AHCI.
    It looked like it is trying to mount partitions with the RAID driver (mdadm) and failing.

    Also make sure Windows fast start up is off as that sets...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: move ubuntu to a new drive does not work

    How did you copy?
    Post this in code tags to preserve formatting (# in Forum's advanced editor):
    lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,size,fstype,uuid,partuuid | egrep -v "^loop"
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Dual boot problem (GRUB doesn't load).

    The UEFI entry looks correct and grub looks correct.
    Is direct boot from UEFI, selecting "ubuntu" not work at all?
    Or if you press escape key(possibly several times) from UEFI/BIOS until grub...

  16. [SOLVED] Re: Dual boot problem (GRUB doesn't load).

    You should not have to manually add entries.
    Some like HP have had to change order using UEFI as it does not remember the order after one boot. I believe that is UEFI that syncs with Windows BCD and...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Dual boot problem (GRUB doesn't load).

    It should be switching from Intel RST to AHCI. You show the small second NVMe drive that is only used for the Windows hibernation file with RST.
    With new SSD & NVMe drives not sure why they still...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: No grub menu Ubuntu 20.04 virtual server

    If it is UEFI, you have to press Escape key between UEFI screen & when grub will (should) appear.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu/FreeBSD

    I see two ESP - efi system partitions. You have sda1 & sda3 as ESP.
