    I have discovered something new today. All componants installed i.e. SSD, RAM etc

    1/ Power on
    2/ Hurriedly hit "Power Off" on the Ubuntu purple splash/welcome screen
    3/ Hurriedly hit "Restart" on the Power Off dialogue box
    4/ Tap tap tap tap DELETE key

    This procedure has shownn me various procedures on the black boot? log? and I'd like to show you images of the screens if it would be of any use!?

    It looks like NVM express is a standard but could be any of various brands.

    Cannot see details. Does it show a brand and model?

    I see 3 components on the SSD

    1 silver in colour which I suppose is the controller, marked

    2102
    SM2263XT G AC
    TB7H03.00
    CH 24N

    and what I presume would be the 2 x 256gb chips that are marked

    29F02T2ANCTJ1
    190527 E5
    and vertically is written HX5F1

    Also marked on the NVM sticker which I had peeled off is marked "M.2 Solid State Drive 512GB"

    So apparently one of these:-

    https://nvmexpress.org/portfolio-ite...62t-i-m-2-ssd/

    On the underside of the SSD ccard I see SM2263XT_BGA132X4_M2_V01_6L_R0426

    @oldfred there is nothing that I have found on this page that is identical to what I have

    https://nvmexpress.org/compliance/

    I would have expected them to show somewhere 'Toshiba' or Transcend' if mine is genuine.

    As mentioned in post 53 by MAFoElffen, when you are in a live session, open a terminal and enter:-
    Code:
    [ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS
    The response will be either UEFI or BIOS

    The link below goes to a video of what happens when I 'catch' DELETE when booting from a 20.04 USB drive. This is only possible when I have removed the SSD from the computer.

    Sorry for the audio.

    Also hitting any of the keys EXCEPT the normal alphabet allows me to switch between the process shown in the video and the Ubuntu "Checking Disk" screen.

    Did a Google search on SM2263XT which looks like the model number of your SSD.
    Every page was Chinese and Google translate did not do the best job.
    https://translate.google.com/transla...search&pto=aue

    Scrolling text is the boot process which also is saved in log file.
    That normally is not shown when quiet splash are on linux line in grub.
    But recovery mode or second line in grub menu uses nomodeset and shows all the boot process as it also removes quiet splash.

    Yes I did some research also and found what appears to be the same SSD as I have. I wonder why they felt like they had to rebadge it though?

    Of the type I mentioned... https://www.amazon.com/SSK-Aluminum-...tronics&sr=1-6

    The one I have eyes on for myself... On my own wishlist.

    That way, you could boot to the USB key with the LiveCD environment (with your SSD not installed) and when in the Environment. Then with your SSD in the Adapter, safely plug in your SSD (via USB) and do what is needed to remove grub from the SSD or remove all partitions, so it is fresh...

    Then everything can be shut down, and reassembled. SSD would failover to the USB Key to Install on the (then) internal SSD.

    Concurrent coexistance of Windows, Linux and UNIX...
