    Re: Problems with EFI Boot

    Good morning,
    I do not know how and I do not know why but this morning my computer started with ubuntu 16.04.4, since October 4 I have an important work deadline I would like to block all updates.
    After the work deadline, I want to do a clean installation.
    Should I close this thread and open a new one later or can I use this?

    Thank you all for answering.

    Probably best to start new thread then, if you still have issues.

    But make sure you have good backups, now, while system is working. I prefer rsync as then I can script it & add a few extra commands in script.

    Run Software and Updates, and under the "Updates" tab, turn off any automatic updates. You can still manually update when you want to.

    Did you do good backups?
    You said you had important work you had to complete? Is that done?
    System should automatically upgrade. Your 16.04.4 reached EOL - end of life in Aug 2018.

    Re: Problems with EFI Boot

    I have to install ubuntu in the ssd, for this reason i didn't do any backup. My important and personal data are in a external hdd.
    I did the same installation that i did in the hdd, but with the ssd i've some trouble, the pc after a couple of starts doesn't recognized ubuntu.

    What can I do?

    Re: Problems with EFI Boot

    Even if external drive, you want to have backups. Drives to fail, one user just installed to wrong drive overwriting all his data and other things just happen.

    May be best to see details, use ppa version with your live installer or any working install, not older Boot-Repair ISO:
    Please attach link to the summary report, the auto fix sometimes can create more issues.
