  3. Re: Dual boot with GRUB is lost sometimes after restart

    The tip I picked up to avoid entering the PC or laptop is to use LiveUSB/Gparted to temporarily disable Windows boot flags then proceed to install Ubuntu in the SSD (I have the same SSD in a docking...
  4. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Installer wants to put extra partitions on a new SSD

    This is what I would try.
    First ensure that you have a working LiveUSB which you appear to have.
    Launch LiveUSB "Try Ubuntu" and then run GParted to view /dev/sda
    I would venture (caveat emptor)...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: BIOS will not detect boot drive (Dell Precision 7910 and hardware raid)

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Remove Ubuntu and keep windows 10

    You are following the usual approach of sharing a physical device (drive) with Windows 10 and Ubuntu x.
    If you have a working Windows 10 in a PC/Laptop have you considered leaving it untouched and...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Reviving Windows boot in dual hard disk UEFI steup

    Having jumped through many hoops myself to arrive at a stable triple boot configuration I suggest departing from the main road to add rEFInd to your boot filesystem.
