I have tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 x64 and x86 a couple of times onto a new OCZ Vertex 30GB, with Ext3 and Ext4 partitions. After installing, it reboots into Ubuntu properly, but hangs on shutdown. After a few hours, I held the power button to shut it off.
When I reboot, I get:
error: unknown filesystem grub rescue>
i basically used the auto settings for install, but tried some variations (3gb swap and 27gb / as sda1 and 5 and the other way round. tried with ext3 and 4 and btrfs.
I tried automatic partitioning for installation, and some variations(3GB swap, 27GB as sda1 or sda5) I have tried Ext3, Ext 4, and btrfs.
I tried Boot-repair via Live USB, asl well as manually reinstalling GRUB, but to no avail.
is it because of the ssd? do i need to TRIM? i thought 11.10 would do that for me...
Is this due to my having an SSD? Do I need to trim?. I thought 11.10 would work.
I appreciate every tip and hint, as well as a solution. Thanks in advance.
My machine is a 3 year old Lenovo n100, core2 duo.
