  1. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    I was able to make it work. Can now dual boot as I desired. To be honest -- I'm not entirely sure what the solution was to this problem. But, I'm glad it's working. Thanks for all your help @oldfred
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    When I woke up today, I booted into the hard drive without the USB in the computer, and it booted into Linux successfully. I have no idea why itís working now. Iím skeptical really. Is there a way I...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Sorry, I meant that I was booting to a GNU Grub, not a grub menu. Are you thinking this is something to do with the moderboard, perhaps a BIOS setting I'm missing or something? I could always just...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey @oldfred I tried to boot into the hard drive, but was faced with a GNU grub menu. From there, I tried to find the kernel, but couldn't find it.

    Anyway, so I ran boot-repair again, this time...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    If everything is correct, then why am I getting a grub-error? What would be my next step? Should I try the recommended boot-repair, or just try to boot into the hard drive.

    Also... I am using the...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    It unfortunately did not. Same error as before. I forgot to mention in my latest post that when I boot up from the USB, I edit the grub line parameter

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Here is the attempt for the new SSD install.

    1) -- The SSD and BIOS are confirmed to be on the latest firmware updates.
    2) The boot mode is confirmed to be UEFI


    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ #!/bin/bash...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Alright, that sounds good. Yeah, the only operating system currently working on my computer right now is Windows.... so I'll update the firmware using the Window's Magician Software. Thanks for the...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    I'm not sure. Tomorrow I will take out both NVME hard drives, and attempt an install on a samsung 860 evo SSD. I will boot into UEFI mode, with secure boot disabled. I will ensure the SSD is a GPT...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    I hear you. But, the BIOS only has 1 adata NVME. After school today I will remove and then install the NVME hard drive again to see if the BOOT in the bios will recognize it.

    Interestingly enough,...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Oddly enough, the NVME isn't even showing up as an option in the Boot menu of the MSI bios.
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    So.. Just to re-confirm your instructions here @oldfred

    Right now, I have the /dev/nvme1n1 with a partial failed install on it. I'm not wiping it. I'm booting into the live USB and then deleting...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    I don't have any data on the nvme1n1 drive to save, as its sole purpose is to have the linux installation on it. I went to GParted and changed the partition table to GPT.

    Here's proof of the...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey @oldfred, I can get back to you in around 3 hours (after school). Just for clarification, the NVME drive is not GPT, thus the partitions are MBR. It's just the NVME, and not the live USB flash...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Note: I am trying Ubuntu 20.04 again. Also, I disabled the boot flags on the windows hard drive in an attempt to fix the error, but no luck.

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey @oldfred Regarding the fstab solution, it did not work.

    I was going to provide code, but my monzilla firefox crashed and would not let me post the logs. I attempted the install from a live...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Yeah I do need to fix that. However, when I removed the windows drive from the computer, I still got the same error. So I doubt the ubuntu uefi boot entry in there is the causation of the error....
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Note: I put the windows hard drive M.2 back in the computer for school use. I wiped the linux M.2 I was trying to install on, but can try the installation again later.

    Anyway, I booted into the...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    According to the Adata website and the Adata SSD toolbox, my NVME drives both have the latest firmware. So, it's not the hard drives. It shouldn't be the motherboard. I have the correct BIOS...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    That is really strange! I was just re-attempting before reading your comment, and while in the live session, without changing anything, it now says the disklabel type is gpt! Still giving me a...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Here is more information. Going through the install again, I thought I could provide the logs of some terminal info to respond to @dragonfly41, who referred me to a bug. The solution to the bug at...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey @oldfred I have tried again to install Linux, and have run into some errors. I am hoping maybe you can help me decode these error messages? Maybe they hint to the solution? (By the way, I'm...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Right, I did exactly that... but instead of sdc1 I did nvme1n1p1 or something along those lines. I coped the directory from fdisk -l
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    The EFI partion of the nvme needs to be on /target/boot/efi, correct? I did check and it was correct, but I unmounted and mounted it again.
