    Re: Stuck at GRUB after update

    It updated the grub.cfg in sda1, but not in sda2, probably because its RAID and only installs to one drive.
    You may need to copy sda1 to sda2.

    Errors seem to be related to sdc, so not important...

    Re: Stuck at GRUB after update

    Do not know RAID.

    But default boot entry in UEFI is 000F, should be 0000 or 0002.
    But the ones using grubx64.efi or bootx64.efi should also work.
    They all should be using the same grub.cfg to...

  14. Re: Lubuntu and Windows dual boot - grub problems

    So the installs are not on the 4TB drives.

    UEFI is separate from AHCI.
    UEFI or BIOS is how system boots. AHCI is what driver is used for drives.

  15. Re: Lubuntu and Windows dual boot - grub problems

    Since 4TB drives, you have UEFI installs.
    Windows only installs in UEFI mode to gpt partitioned drives and Ubuntu should also be in UEFI boot mode.
