  1. [ubuntu] Re: dock Dell TB16 does not work with XPS 13

    I would think dock would need to be connected, so it can see it. Not sure how that works with added devices.
  2. Re: 18.04 upgraded to 19.04 boot hangs Merge Posts

    If you have nVidia card/chip, you only use nomodeset boot parameter to boot until you install the nVidia drivers. Otherwise your nomodeset will prevent the nVidia drivers from working.

    Re: New Win10 / Ubuntu install process

    It sounds like it makes UEFI only or CSM boot flash drive.
    Did the version using MBR and CSM also boot in UEFI boot mode or only BIOS/CSM boot mode?

    And then copy to create mmx64.efi is required...

    Re: New Win10 / Ubuntu install process

    If you choose gpt, is it then UEFI?

    New installs use a swap file, so swap partition is not required.

    Re: New Win10 / Ubuntu install process

    I have never used Rufus, but I think this screen shot is not correct for UEFI.
    UEFI has CSM.

    Re: New Win10 / Ubuntu install process

    Many seem to have the mmx64.efi missing error. I have not seen it.
    Standard fix is just to copy (anything?) grub64.efi into /EFI/Boot and rename to mmx64.efi.
    Once installed you will have the...

    You need to compare your version with the most current version that vendor has.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: dock Dell TB16 does not work with XPS 13

    Many companies still call it BIOS, but it has been UEFI since 2012. Microsoft required UEFI with gpt partitioning starting with Windows 8 in 2012.

    It probably is a hidden Dell system recovery partition.

    Re: New Win10 / Ubuntu install process

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Not able to install ubuntu on lenovo e490

    If Windows is UEFI, you really need to have Ubuntu in UEFI boot mode.
    And if using bios_grub you are booting in BIOS boot mode, not UEFI.

    Ubuntu live installer is both BIOS & UEFI.
