    Re: nividia driver

    [ubuntu] Re: GRUB on a RAID system

    Do not know RAID.

    But old grub legacy did not need as large of an embedding area, the space after the MBR but before first partition. Since your RAID starts at 512 bytes, you left no space.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Installed Ubuntu 19, can't find in boot menu

    Is this an Acer?
    Then you need to set "trust" from within UEFI. See post #3.

    Also many need UEFI update from Acer, especially if trust option missing.
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Installed Ubuntu 19, can't find in boot menu

    Years ago when UEFI was new we used to use a setting like that. But it caused issue and we have other better work arounds.

    If you use the Windows setting, Windows updates will overwrite it and you...
