    You do not now get the purple BIOS screen with the newest Ubuntu.

    Most Acer seem to work, but many have needed UEFI update.

    Another alternative is an external SSD.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Did we ever see what brand the SSD is?
    Many SSD need firmware update.
    And those vendors have their own site with firmware updates.
  8. Re: slow boot (4 minutes) after a black screen list of problems.

    It says it boots in 4 minutes. Or actually 3 & half.

    Are you using snaps? The loopmount devices?
    I immediately uninstall all snaps, and install standard apt package or live without. (So nothing...
  9. Re: /dev/sdb instead of /dev/sda after installation

    I often have same issue as my flash drive as sdg or sdf becomes sda on reboot which changes every drive. But UUID usually works, so system boots ok.

  10. Re: Cannot Boot Into Ubuntu 21:04 or Windows 10

    Older Acer required setting of "trust" in UEFI.
    But those typically showed "unknown" as UEFI entry as shown by efibootmgr -v. But on line 185 you do show "ubuntu".
    Newer ones also have additional...

    Re: Unable to boot into Ubuntu

    It looks like the reinstall of grub worked.
    You have at some time incorrectly installed grub in BIOS mode and it added a bios_grub partition and grub in gpt's protective MBR.
    Just do not boot in...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Many systems have needed UEFI update. Does your vendor have an update on its support page?
    And most SSDs even new, also have firmware updates which can solve issues.
    I have a Samsung NVMe SSD and...
  13. Re: slow boot (4 minutes) after a black screen list of problems.

    Your 4 minutes does seem high.
    Your report does not show any issues, standard older BIOS boot with MBR partitions.

  14. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Many UEFI have a setting called fast boot, that is different than Windows fast start up.
    Fast boot in UEFI assumes no system changes, so UEFI does not update info on hard drive for operating system...

    You can compare:

    But may depend on exactly what you are doing to see any difference.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    If UEFI, you press escape key between vendor's UEFI/BIOS screen & when grub should appear. Often have to try several times or press escape multiple times to get it to work.

    [SOLVED] Re: dual boot only shows boot ubuntu

    Are both systems installed in UEFI boot mode? And with newer UEFI hardware, better to use UEFI, not old legacy/BIOS/CSM mode.

    The bios_grub is required for BIOS boot of a system on gpt partitioned drive. It must be unformatted so gparted will also show...

    The boot mode setting is for your installed system.
