There are some peculiarities about your installation: Your computer has two Windows Recovery Environment partitions, /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5. My guess is one is from your previous Windows installation and the other is for the new installation, but I can't be positive of that. I doubt if this duplication is causing you any problems per se; I mention it ...

It is possible that bits of code may get dragged around from kernel to kernel - during the unpacking/install - It is also possible to go back to an older kernel. At the grub boot menu choose the Kernel you want to boot to - Once you have chosen the Kernel you want to keep and you have booted into it uname -r will tell you what kernel you are currently ...

Installing windows (or upgrading it) alongside linux can be problematic. Try this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair I used it to fix a problem after I installed the Windows 10 tech preview, and it worked. Basically, what it does is reinstall grub to work with all currently installed operating systems. Make sure to tell it to install grub to ...

From the output of your boot-repair command, it looks like you have an UEFI system… However, Ubuntu is installed in non-UEFI mode, and Windows is installed in UEFI mode so only one of the two is going to work at a time without changing the boot parameters… The best you can do is: re-install Windows 10 in non-UEFI mode or reinstall Ubuntu in UEFI mode ...

My computer came with Windows 8 pre-installed so I shrunk the Windows partition to make room for Ubuntu. That it how it works for the last year. After the second reboot in Windows 10 upgrade the computer did not boot any more. The grub only displayed a grub rescue command prompt. I found out later that the problem occurred because windows somehow changed the ...

This procedure requires that you create an .img file from the .iso file you download. It will also change the filesystem that is on the USB stick to make it bootable, so backup all data before ...

As an alternative to solve the bug, the init process may be switched to upstart, since this is a bug related with systemd. Here is stated that upstart may be used as a workaround. To do so, the easiest way is to install the corresponding package: sudo apt-get install upstart-sysv After the installation, you still are able to start the system with systemd ...

Boot-Repair allows to easily do the EFI renaming via the "Rename Windows EFI files" option, but that option is not enabled by default because it's a dirty hack and it is not reliable in all situations. Instead, it is safer to change the UEFI boot order, when possible, or have bcd call grub, which is what Boot-Repair suggests (see the 4 last lines of your ...

Nothing will show up as you type your password, this is an intentional security feature! Make sure you type the password correctly, remember that Ubuntu is case-sensitive!

You need to change your boot priority so grub takes president over the Windows bootloader. In your UEFI go to Boot and look for something similar to Boot Option Priorities and set Boot Option #1 to ubuntu (P#: drive name). This should set grub as your default boot device. It is also worth noting that devices such as ubuntu (size) and Windows Boot Manager (P# ...

This is occurring as in BIOS network boot option is enabled and in boot priorities network boot is 1st or before to the option USB or primary HDD. You simply need to disable network boot option in BIOS setup of your Dell INSPIRON 3421.

You can not create more that 4 primary partitions in MBR. I suggest temporarily removing /sda3 swap partition. Move left side of /sda4 right. Remove /sda3. Create an extended partition in unallocated space. Create two partitions inside the extended. Format one as swap, the other as ext2 for /boot. Update /etc/fstab with new UUIDs and mount points for swap ...

As the D630 is an older model I don't believe UEFI has anything to do with it. Double check system requirements here I would avoid unetbootin as in my experience success is rare. I've had excellent results using dd to duplicate the iso to a USB flash drive. The process to do so can be found in here. Basically you just connect the flash drive you wish to ...

Your problem is caused by Btrfs quirks. Because it supports subvolumes, it's often necessary to specify unusual options to get rEFInd to scan the right subdirectory and to get the kernel to recognize the right location as its root. To get rEFInd to scan the kernels, you must add the following line to refind.conf: also_scan_dirs +,@/boot This assumes that ...

I am not entirely sure but try this: Try and go into BIOS when the PC starts (press either del/enter) and see if you can disable UEFI. If you can, reboot and see if you can automatically boot. Also if you have a button that says you can pick another media to boot into, press that and your USB should be there. Hope it helps!

On my ASUS UEFI PC it would not recognize a bootable USB unless I: Powered off the PC Inserted the USB Powered on the PC Entered the BIOS Set the USB as boot priority 1 Allowed the boot to continue I had to set the boot order while the USB was inserted, in the same restart session. Doing it in advance did not work. PS your English is fine.

The EndEntire error: premature end of file and EndEntire error: cannot load image messages might indicate a problem that needs to be fixed from the Windows side -- namely, damage to the Windows boot loader. (OTOH, if you have a backup of your EFI System Partition, or ESP, from before the error occurred, you may be able to recover by restoring that backup. ...

You need to add UUID of your swap partition to /etc/fstab file. Run sudo -H gedit /etc/fstab and add or replace the line regarding swap like this UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx none swap sw 0 0 You can see the UUID of your swap partition in gparted if you click properties.
