    New Ubuntu 21.10 install will not boot unless USB install stick is inserted

    On an Acer Aspire TC 1660 with an SSD, I have installed Ubuntu 21.10. Unless I put the USB installer stick in the USB slot, the screen tells me there is no bootable medium. When I put the USB stick in and restart, it boots up into the new installed system just fine.

    It sounds like (somehow), it installed the Grub bootloader to the USB stick?

    I would redo the USB thumb drive with the install media, and reinstall, insuring that the boot loader is installed to the internal drive.
