  1. Re: "[Errno 5] Input/output error" during installation

    To start from absolute zero, you could write zeros to the drive. Typically, just the first megabyte should suffice. That will destroy partition table etc. and stop any confusion gparted or the...

    Re: new studio installl help please

    Quite a powerful computer, for one that's 12 years old. I guess it has seen some upgrades?

    In Windows, create enough unallocated space on the drive where you want to install Ubuntu. Disable...

    Re: new studio installl help please

    Does it? I didn't see it mentioned on their website. This time, I actually checked. Quickly.

    What about giving us some data?

    How are your ssd and harddrive currently partitioned? Where do you...

    Re: new studio installl help please

    Minitool PartitionWizard is a Windows tool that only knows about Windows partitions (FAT and NTFS). It's good to shrink Windows partitions, but useless when dealing with Linux partitions. Use...
  6. Re: sudo apt-get update fails on Ubuntu 19.10

    19.10 reached end of life in July 2020. You should have upgraded to 20.04 before that. That's the idea behind non-LTS releases. You could try an EOL upgrade, but a fresh install may give better...

    Re: new studio installl help please

    Use Windows tools to shrink the Windows partitions on the SSD to make room. You can use gparted on the live disk to create Ubuntu partitions, or you can do it in the installer. Select the partition,...
  8. Re: Win 8: Can this be fixed / anything recovered?

    If you have trouble removing the hard drive, you could at least use Ubuntu to clone it to a healthy external hard drive, using ddrescue. But you still need Windows tools to recover files....
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Access to HDDs in a server if the OS HDD is replaced with a later OS install ?

    If you create the same users and groups with the same userIDs and groupIDs, then you won't get any permissions issues. That typically means creating the users and groups in the same order. Users and...
  10. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Is a live session doomed to freeze on me sooner or later?

    On a live system with persistence you can install upgrades, but still no kernel upgrades. I don't think I ever used a live session longer than 2 hours, to change some partitions on my hard drive....

    [ubuntu] Re: Failure to Boot

    Failed release upgrades are hard to fix. Try running a live disk of Ubuntu 20.04.2. It will come with kernel 5.8. If it works, install. That will save you another release upgrade two years from now....
  12. [SOLVED] Re: sizing impossible to the main partition of Ubuntu

    It can be done, but it's a bit risky.

    First of all, you cannot modify a partition when it's in use, so you have to boot a live disk (like the one you used to install Ubuntu). On the live disk...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Which Windows partitions can I delete?

    I don't know about Windows partitions. This is an Ubuntu forum, after all. I do know that your partition 2, 4, 5 and 6 are together just 1.5% of your hard drive. That won't make a difference.
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Do I need to rollback upgrades? if so, how do i do so?

    Remove 59 and 60. They are broken (you say, I can't see from the output) and old. Keep 54 (it works). Removal of 62 will trigger removal of the kernel metapackage. You need that kernel metapackage to...

    Re: New Install Grub Rescue

    When you set your computer to uefi mode, the installer disk will boot in uefi mode and will install your system in uefi mode. Which is really preferred for modern systems.

    BTW, your boot info...

  17. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu installer doesn't see external SSD connected via USB

    Can you see the external ssd from within the Ubuntu live session? Can you see it in uefi?

    You should be able to install Ubuntu on the external ssd. The bootloder will be put in the first...

    Re: Software updater - no password

    Maybe there's some obscure setting to control this, but the default has been for years to only require a password for the GUI tool if you want to install new packages or remove some packages. Kernel...
  19. Re: New installation - file manager not pointing to /home

    It sounds to me – but I might misunderstand your post – that you installed Ubuntu 20.04 and wanted to keep your /home partition from your previous install. However, you made a typo in either your...

    Maybe Ubuntu is better at removing old software? Maybe Linux filesystems suffer less from fragmentation?

    Re: New Install Grub Rescue

    Can you install boot-repair in the live session and create a boot info summary? That may tell us what's going on. Don't run the recommended repair.

    Yes, a few tens of megabytes maybe.
