  1. Re: External disk stuck in a readonly state!

    If NTFS, did Windows set fast boot on?
    That sets hibernation flag and then the Linux NTFS driver cannot default mount the partition.

    Have you updated UEFI to latest available and updated SSD firmware also?

  3. Re: GRUB2 no longer boots any operating system

    Microsoft has required vendors to install Windows in UEFI/gpt mode since release of Windows 8 in 2012.
    So almost all hardware is now UEFI.

    This was changed to 2021:

  4. Re: partition windows not found after try encrypted disk ubuntu

    Stop using system. And only use live installer that does not mount swap as that also overwrites more data.

    Re: Moving old SSD to new Lenovo MiniPC

    Most legacy installs are on MBR(msdos) partitioned drives.
    Windows requires gpt partitioning for UEFI installs.
    But since Ubuntu will let you use MBR with UEFI (it maybe should not), you just need...
  6. Re: Windows desktop stopped working in dual-boot.

    Can you directly boot Windows from HP's UEFI boot menu? Most HP:

  9. [ubuntu] Re: 21.04 will no longer boot on dual-boot ubuntu/win xp system

    It must be 10 years ago I shutdown XP as I installed a tiny SSD as a boot drive.
    But XP did not support AHCI, and AHCI was required for SSD, or maybe it was trim on SSD?
    So how were you dual...
  10. Re: GRUB2 no longer boots any operating system

    Also best not to install grub to PBR, partition boot sector or BS - boot sector.
    BIOS systems can only boot from MBR, not from PBR.
    Grub2 should complain about trying to install to PBR.
