  3. Thread: Partitioning

    by oldfred

    [ubuntu] Re: Partitioning

    You have UEFI install to MBR(msdos) partitioned drive.

    Much better to use gpt.
    Gparted still defaults to using MBR on smaller drives, you have to change to gpt if formatting in advance.

  5. Thread: Partitioning

    [ubuntu] Re: Partitioning

    It looks like you installed in UEFI boot mode to a MBR partitioned drive.

  8. Re: How to get around Windows 10 to install Ubuntu on my laptop

    Have you updated UEFI and if SSD, the SSD firmware?
    Many with HP have said resetting boot order with efibootmgr does not work. And grub uses efibootmgr to reset to make grub first. That works once,...
  9. Re: New Windows 10 install Over Existing Windows 7 Partion

    If a BIOS system, be sure to backup partition table.
    Windows has a bug where it rewrites partition table on major updates & "forgets" to include Linux logical partitions.

  10. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Installer wants to put extra partitions on a new SSD

    Your signature shows a new UEFI based system. You should make it clear that you are installing on an old system and what the specs are on that system.

    Re: Ubuntu boots take too long

    Please post clickable links.
    Is this correct link?

    That is a log of your boot, you can see several longer times, but not familiar with any issues.

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Remove Ubuntu and keep windows 10 Then install a fresh Ubuntu

    Windows only installs in UEFI boot mode with gpt partitions.
    Windows only installs in BIOS boot mode with MBR(msdos) partitions.
    Ubuntu will let you install to either, but really should not.

  16. Re: Will my brand new high spec desktop work with the latest Ubuntu??

    I would add a NVMe boot drive. With Ubuntu & larger drives for data, it does not have to be large.

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Failed install (EFI on top of legacy install)
