The cause is reported in the log message above "ICRC", you should check cables first. It is the most likely culprit to the issue you are having. The reply from Kingston sounds very strange, there is nothing that can get out-of-sync in there, the CRC errors are caused on the physical transport between the two SATA interfaces (disk and motherboard) and if ...

I don't know if you can because even if you install grub to different HDs I think it still needs to be pointed to with the MBR. Though you could try installing grub A to sda and grub B to sdb and then just choosing which to boot from in the bios every time.

In a nutshell, UEFI is a new technology that replaces BIOS on really new machines. Often these come built-in with Windows 8. I'm assuming you installed Windows 8 yourself and you mentioned legacy BIOS, therefore you need not worry about UEFI. You should be able to install Ubuntu without any hassle. No, other drives will not be touched unless you tell the ...

if you want to use Linux, try Lubuntu because lxde is really a light weight, I have 8GB RAM but I only use lxde and don't use Unity. 1GB is really low to run Unity. And if you use Windows XP is better unless you increase your RAM. Windows 7 will consume a lot :)

Follow the instructions provided with your Windows 7 installation disc. If you have no desire to keep Ubuntu, then it does not matter what was on the drive beforehand.

If you get to the install screen it means that everything is OK. Normally such failures mean that the ISO image wasn't correctly downloaded.

Firts: In order to allow dual booting of Ubuntu with other operating systems, Uefi Secure Boot needs to be disabled in the system firmware.

In /boot/grub.cfg is defined wich partition is used as root partition for the (unix-like)OSs. Here in my case Arch isn't booting, if his root partition is called by the name /dev/sdXY. I changed this using vim (vi shuold do it as well) using the command :%s/\/dev\/sdXY/UUID=my-uuid/g this substitutes every /dev/sdXY with my-uuid

Bootable ISO images contain a partition table and boot record, and thus must be written to a disk rather than to a partition. The dd command you ran wrote the ISO image to sdd1, which is the first partition of the disk sdd. Write it just to sdd instead. dd if=path/to/iso of=/dev/sdd Of course, as ubuntu_tr says, always check that sdd is actually the ...

Wubi no longer works, and will just restart the system. You should either burn the iso file to a dvd, or use unetbootin to create a bootable usb stick.

You (and me) started from the wrong assumption. According to this, [...] the messages are printed the console and written to usplash (if applicable).

To reinstall Windows and Ubuntu after that, you need to create an NTFS partition for Windows and an ext4 partition for Ubuntu. You then need to install Windows first. If you install Windows last, you will be unable to reach GRUB2 on boot.

I thought it was impossible as with UEFI you are supposed to use gpt. But you are using the efi partition on the sda gpt partitioned drive to boot an Ubuntu install on a MBR(msdos) drive. Better to have sdc as gpt partitioned and include its own efi partition at beginning of drive so it could boot without sda. Some disconnect other drives, other partition ...

Then, after several tries, I somehow installed Ubuntu and have been working on it since. That was a terribly bad idea.

Useful for devices that are detected asynchronously ...
