    Re: Install Ubuntu but cant login.

    Do not know encryption, nor jfs.

    Do you have Ubuntu?
    I see PepperMint & Deepin & Windows.

    It looks like your Ubuntu entry is booting the jfs partition, sda12.
    See line 978.
    Not sure then if...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to install boot-repair on 19.10

    Do these run without error if Boot-Repair not installed.
    Always best to make sure system is up to date, before Boot-Repair as sometimes other software can cause an issue.

  12. Re: Ubuntu on separate disk (MBR) from Windows (GPT,NVME)

    With UEFI you can always directly boot Windows from UEFI boot menu. Same key you used to load USB flash drive.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu and Windows on different drives

    It looks like you did not have them in same boot mode, so os-prober would never find Windows.
