Run with an older kernel, open a terminal, and type: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a this will reconfigure all your installed packages, and usually solves the problem!

The other answer ... that is actually an answer (apparently now another one has been removed. but there were answers here that were just comments) .. that answer is wrong at least for me. My system was a fresh system, with brand new SSDs (during install they were new at least - jan 2012) there is no other old GRUB install anywhere. I went to bed last night ...

I've finally solved my problem! For people who have the same problem like I had, here is the solution: I recommend to make a fresh install of your system, if you already have an issue with drivers. Boot up Ubuntu and make sure you're connected on the internet. Open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + F1 Login and here is what you have to type in terminal: sudo ...

In Linux there is no defrag, by the way I suggest you to make a document backup and then a clean install of 14.04...this will be the best solution. Or you can try to clean the unnecessary files, tmp etc. with bleachbit. sudo apt-get install bleachbit sudo bleachbit Use carefully.

Download the LTS here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/ Or if you're a GNOME fan like myself download that image here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/GetUbuntuGNOME Download YUMI and use rather than unetbootin. create your boot device using YUMI and selecting the downloaded ISO. Boot again then and try

So I've found two approaches to solving this, both outlined on this Debian page: Continue to use wicd but effectively disable /etc/network/interfaces by leaving only the loopback entries. Configure wlan0 directly in /etc/network/interfaces and wicd can be removed (as also suggested by steeldriver above). Edit: I've now tried both, and both worked, but ...

You can do a few Full installs to separate partitions on the pendrive with various o/s and each will retain modifications. If you want to do a few persistent, (Frugal), installs, the persistence mechanism needs to be different, as with Ubuntu, Puppy, Debian, etc. Do not try to share a casper-rw file between different 'buntus, things will go really wonky. ...

Enter this after you log in: sudo apt-get purge nvidia-* Enter password, press y, then enter. Enter this: sudo reboot This will delete all proprietary drivers and reboot computer. You computer will use stock, open source drivers after that, but you can still try to install proprietary drivers.

gparted does not manage LVM, you have to resize them manually with a live usb. I suggest you first free up space on /boot , see How do I free up more space in /boot? If that fails, How can I resize an LVM partition? (i.e: physical volume)

I just ran into this same problem installing 14.04 from a USB disk. It didn't even get to Grub menu; after I selected to boot off the USB drive, the system just stayed on black screen with the hard drive activity LED indicator staying on. Solution: On the USB stick, navigate to and open in an editor the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg Change the line set ...

I have had the same problem. My guess is that, since I have two hard drives, the system is trying to start from the wrong drive where an old version of GRUB is installed. My solution was to start Ubuntu with a USB stick (it does not matter which version). Once you start, these commands will do it: mkdir /tmp/drive sudo mount /dev/sdX1 /tmp/drive sudo ...

For your first question: Yes. The easiest is probably to use Unetbootin or usb-creator. For Unetbootin, turn the "Space used to preserve files across reboots (Ubuntu only)" option to something more than 0. For usb-creator, the slider near the bottom is the measure. If you prefer to roll your own grub config, the boot option is "persistent" and there must be ...

I had the same issue with my HP laptop. Not sure if its the same problem or not, but try turning the Screen Brightness up. For some reason Ubuntu sometimes boots with brightness all the way down.

After you boot into Ubuntu 14.04, make sure you perform a complete system update (sudo apt-get update followed eventually by sudo apt-get dist-upgrade just in case you have heldback packages).

You must set the usb stick boot priority higher than the hard disk. You can do this thing in bios.

If I understand you correctly, you are booting with /dev/sda as the first drive in the BIOS boot order, but are actually loading the system from /dev/sdb. If that is true, all you have to do is mount the correct partition from /dev/sda. You'd do something like this: mkdir -p /mnt/wdhdd sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/wdhdd If you have trouble figuring out ...

ZFS Restore Hi, I got things working, and I wanted to share my solution with others who might be in a similar situation. Please note that this is just a log of what I did and it may not solve your issue. Before I begin, I just want to say again how pleased I am with ZFS on Ubuntu. It was easy to install and I have had no issues with it. Also, I cannot say ...

I went into the BIOS and changed the boot order, but that didn't work. I made sure I had the 32-bit version. Now that I read the notice, I'm not sure if Ubuntu is the way to go. While I may the able to adjust to the differences in operating systems, the other user in my household would have a very hard time. Thanks...

Do you have optimus enabled in your laptop ? This means that you have both an intel / nvidia graphics chipset, that work together in certain ways to save power. It could be that your linux OS cannot find the nvidia chip , and hence cannot render anything on screen. If this is the case, a straightforward solution might be to try Ubuntu 14.04 , which seems to ...

Try the install on a different computer if you have one. If not try using windows installer. If that doesn't work request or buy a installation cd from Ubuntu. When I installed Ubuntu all I did was boot up the computer and delete the ubuntu rom and it brought me to the installer.

you need to enter the bios and select the deviceto boot. you can enter the bios on most computers by pressing f2 at the post screen. The post screen is the screen displayed when you turn the computer on, it displays the manufaturer name, computer model, and in most cases the key used to enter the bios... for my asus k55a the process for booting a cd is as ...

The one problem that could prevent booting after /boot fills up is that you can end up with a new kernel installed in /boot, and run out of room to build the initrd to go with it. Grub will automatically be updated and see the new kernel, and make it the default boot entry, but without the initrd, it won't work. The solotion is simply to select the older ...

If the boot partition is 100% full will my system still be able to boot? Yes, you can be able to boot Ubuntu. Are temp files written in /boot during the boot process? No temporary files were written to the /boot directroy while booting.

As far as I know, GRUB2 doesn't boot Windows all by itself, it just calls the NTLDR (or Windows Loader in W8 and W8.1). Besides, AFAIK, GRUB2 is just a bootloader and not an OS installer. You should download (if that's what you did) another ISO, or ask in Microsoft Support for your missing Windows packages.

You could probably use knockd to do it if you really wanted to. I also have quite a few daemons installed for various uses, and I tend to just disable them starting on bootup and manually start them when I need them. The command to do so would be: sudo update-rc.d $serviceName disable and then the obvious sudo service $serviceName start when you ...

You should be able to go into your BIOS at startup and select which drive to bout off of.

The good news is that all of the files in /boot are specific to raspbian and aren't present on a typical Ubuntu install. I don't think their presence will cause any issues, they will likely just be ignored. I could tell you with more certainty if you show the current contents of your /boot. The files in /dev and /run are completely irrelevant since these ...

It seems your computer is completely skipping over the Windows 7 disc. Just to be clear: Are you going into your BIOS to set the DVD ROM drive as the first boot option? If you did that and it's skipping over the disc to start Zorin, there is probably an issue with either your DVD ROM drive or the disc itself. Do you have any other machines available where ...

So I finally figured it out. I went onto my Arch Linux install and used lsmod to find any encryption related kernel modules that I may be missing. I found twofish_common and twofish_generic (I am using the twofish cipher) and added these both to my initramfs. It now works. I find this very weird because it worked prior to the update and these modules were ...
