Here is your answer. You can reduce the Timeout of GRUB and then on expiration it will automatically run currently selected OS, which in your case will be "your OS"

A couple of things to check: Is there enough space on the USB drive? Is the USB drive mounted? You may want to try reformatting the drive before you attempt running unetbootin beware that this will wipe the USB Drive!: sudo fdisk /dev/sdx (replace x with whatever the usb drive # is) Then type d then the ENTER Key This will delete the current ...

So, at first I was thinking it's most likely a problem with some BIOS startup settings, since that seems to be the most common problem in cases like mine, but as it turns out, that wasn't it. Now I found a solution myself, described below. I still don't know why it works, but here's the how... The problem seems to be that I initially created the bootable ...

The right-click pop-up is almost certainly copying the .iso file to disk as a file in a filesystem, instead of actually filling the CD with it AS the filesystem. Try using something like K3b to burn it as an ISO image instead.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install grub-customizer Then pick Ubuntu, with Linux 3.16.0-36-generic to be the default boot (since it works for you). After this go to the following file: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub Then change the grub timeout GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 Save and reboot.

In the end, the solution was to find out that there is another bug! When in the GRUB console I typed insmod xfs I got an erorr back that error back that said something like: insmod.xfs error file xfs.mod not found So the solution was to install Ubuntu and selecting the ext3 filesystem instead of xfs !! I hope this helps somebody

I am assuming you are booting a PC in BIOS mode. When running the Live CD/USB, choose "Try ubuntu" Then run gparted and: create a GPT partition table (Device > Create partition table) on your pendrive create an ESP, fat32, 512MB, with esp flag. create also a BIOS boot partition, unformatted, 32Mb, with bios_grub flag Then click on install Ubuntu to ...

I've noticed that if my Aquaris has low charge then it refuses to turn on, even though it clearly has enough to get as far as the charging status screen. The only reliable solution I've found is to wait a while for the phone to charge more (about five minutes on my charger) and then try again.

I had this same problem and latest update solved it, but before that I just tried to press power button while BQ logo was displayed - I tried holding it, pressing it repeatedly or pressing it one time once the BQ logo appeared. After few attempts the phone booted normally but I didn't find pattern that works every time.

It doesn't matter if you install windows 7 or 8 with ubuntu. Regarding Installation of Windows ( including reinstalling windows after crash) after Ubuntu, you can restore GRUB using Boot Repair. The only thing you need to do is after Windows installation, Use Ubuntu Live CD or USB and install Boot Repair. It will automatically repair your bootloader and all ...

As far as I know both Windows 8 and Windows 7 are same. If you re-install Windows they simply refuse to boot to Ubuntu (any Linux OS). If you haven't formatted the partition where you installed Ubuntu (any Linux OS) while installing Windows (7 or 8) then there is always hope. Install EasyBCD 2.2 and add entry for Ubuntu as GRUB 2 and leaving other fields as ...

It is likely the usb drive. Alot of usb drives now have "Windows 8 certification" which makes it impossible to boot a live distro. I would refer here to the faulty ones. You may also need to disable secure boot. Isn't microsoft the worst for messing all this up? Disabling quick boot might also help. Also, as another user said you may also need to go to the ...

I recommend not only separate boot and swap partitions but also a user partition. makes it easier to back up and recover. Boot partitions need to be first on the drive. I am uncertain how SSDs handle that. Ext 2 has more support for some maintenance, diagnostics and repair than ext4. Some say 1Gb for boot partition. You've probably been here already: ...

You can instruct Windows what to do when you hit the "Power Button". Your distro is sensing that Windows is hibernating, meaning that your user state is stored on the hard drive and is accessed at boot. To make sure it is not hibernating, go to the control panel, find the power settings, set it to power off, not hibernate, when you hit the off button. By ...

You might need to try booting manually into linux by opening the BIOS boot menu, probably F2 key right after startup (just press it repeatedly until you get that. Use a different key if that's not it). Once you're in linux, you will have to run sudo update-grub That should do it. You may also have to change the default boot device to the partition ...

Not allowed to comment yet so I'll leave this as an answer. I am also having this problem and it appears to be down to the nvidia drivers.

Download your BIOS update program from your computer manufacturers website. You can try installing it with Wine in ubuntu but likely will not work (worth a try though). Chances are your computer does not have a bios chip but rather loads the bios from a specific hard disk. Same as holding SHIFT key immediately after (or even before) power on. Using the ...

It might be the USB drive. Some USB sticks don't work as liveUSB sticks. I've had some dodgy sticks in the past (especially Kingston ones). Try another USB stick.

The autoremoval of kernels in Ubuntu are controlled by the /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal file. If the package is not marked for hold, than it should keep the last two versions and the newer ones. This means that you have to run the lastest version to can remove the older ones. After you rebooted the latest kernel, issue the command: sudo apt-get ...

Your boot repair log looks a lot like the log for an unformatted disk, therefore a simple boot repair will not suffice... Therefore I would just restore my back-up. If you don't have a back-up, you should start making them after the following steps: Buy a new disk (not too expensive as this will be a back-up disk) Boot an Ubuntu LiveCD Create an exact ...

Get into BIOS and change the boot order. Its F2 for my asus laptop. You might have to look it up. Change so ubuntu starts first. That should take you to a screen where you can choose the OS.

You could use xorriso. I don't remember why but I think this is not possible with mkisofs.

Try booting from a ubuntu live CD or a USB. If you can boot Ubuntu from a live CD, try installing "Boot Repair" available in the software center. Start "Boot repair". It automatically repairs any errors with GRUB.

Two options in UEFI do not harm. It happens because both UEFI and update-grub wrote there. The best way to 'fix' it is to remove both items using efibootmgr and run 'sudo update-grub'. sudo efibootmgr You will see efi boot entries. Like Boot0001, Boot0000, etc. To remove an entry do, e.g. sudo efibootmgr -Bb 0000 Other options can be found by man ...

If you want to remove the swap partition, you should first try by commenting its entry in /etc/fstab, then reboot. As for the long boot time, it may be that one of your filesystems has been damaged. As soon as your system is up, run the appropriate fsck.* command for each of the file systems. If it reports errors, it will usually recommend how to fix them. ...

Swap partition is not for hibernation. It is a kind of cache. Create a permanent swap partition. You are better off doing a reinstall.

HP BIOSes are a bit weird, I've been struggling with that, too. Does your BIOS Setup look like this (found on newer HP ProBooks), then follow below instructions.

I've had similar problems as you with Unetbootin. Give it a try with the dd utility instead. First make sure that the usb-drive is not mounted.
