    Re: Installation

    Thank you so much. This will def be something I haven't tried yet. And I'm assuming by boot flag you mean to select /boot?

    Re: Installation

    I have also noticed that my internet goes down during installation. I have to reset my router to get it back up. Anyone run into this?

    don't install extra drivers and packages (fonts, flash...) during install. you can easilly add those later if needed.

    Re: Installation

    If you have Windows 7, but a newer computer with UEFI, you may have Windows in BIOS boot mode with MBR partitions. But if system is UEFI Ubuntu can be booted from UEFI menu in either UEFI mode or BIOS mode and how it is booted it how it installs.
    A few Windows 7 systems were installed in UEFI mode, so you need to know which way your system is installed as both Windows and Ubuntu need to be UEFI or both BIOS to easily dual boot.
    Windows only boots from gpt partitioned drives with UEFI.
    Drives partitioned with MBR(msdos) only boot in BIOS mode.
    Ubuntu will boot from gpt partitioned drives in either UEFI mode with an efi partition for boot files or a tiny 1MB unformatted partition with the bios_grub flag for grub2's core.img.

    I understand what you're saying. So I DO need to manually partition? how should I set it up?

    Thread closed. Please do not start threads on same topic as now I am confused on where you are at as you are also getting good advice in your other thread.
