You might try booting into bios and give preference to usb in the boot menu to boot first, save and exit, see if it helps.

Looks like your machine has a firmware bug, http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19543161 , And grub (or some other linux boot manager like "lilo") is necessary for any Linux Distro if it is the main system on a machine. And grub has no problem with bios or does not create any obstacle to boot into bios.

No, grub is needed even if your only OS is Linux. Besides selecting the OS to boot, it also gives you the options to boot to Recovery Mode for example, or select any kernel you want in case you have installed more than one on your system. Grub is the system's bootloader. It is mandatory.

Did you set Ubuntu’s boot manager as the default boot device? http://linuxbsdos.com/2014/05/31/dual-boot-ubuntu-14-04-windows-7-on-a-pc-with-2-hdds-and-uefi-firmware/ I also found some good info here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1640178 I hope you get it working!

Often Boot-Repair can fix booting type issues with Ubuntu and some other Linux. It can only do very minor fixes to Windows issues. One fix often is just a install of grub to MBR if BIOS or to ESP if UEFI. But some need advanced options and full reinstall of grub. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair Occasionally with complex configurations, it is ...

welcome, assuming you are using a 4 gb RAM computer, you will have delete that 500GB patition indicating SWAP , the right click on the unlocated new 500Gb which will appear in grey color and allocated 4 gb as swap by selecting file system as Linux-Swap in G-Parted and click add, the remaining vlume you will create a new file system by right clicking on it ...

The reason you cant view it is because its been allocated for swap which is a waste allocating it 500GB its good to allocate it a size equal to RAM size of your PC. Re partition that 1Tb disks 500GB extended prtition in live mode by using Gparted and allocated a memory slightly equal to your RAM size then the rest you can use it for other purposes.doing this ...

You can install your new Ubuntu without overwrite the existing one, if you have your home folder on a separate partition, or simply, do not select "Format partition" on the manual install option. The new installation will overwrite the system files and folders, but you will not lose your data, at least, not all. Settings and other things not in your home ...

The issue could be related to nvidia driver if you have one. Try to update nvidia drivers like that: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current This solution worked for me. Source: http://askubuntu.com/a/150121/571419

You can't 'convert' Ubuntu to UEFI. It is already installed in UEFI mode, because the uefi bootloader uses an EFI partition (as well as Windows, too). In (old) BIOS mode there is no need for an EFI partition. Legacy bootloader seems to be kinda backup boot mode, in case efi bootloader got corrupted.


1

You do not have to create a new ESP (EFI system partition). In fact, you must leave the ESP alone as explained in the UEFI Ubuntu help page Make sure you install Ubuntu in EFI mode so you will be able to boot both Ubuntu and Windows from GRUB.


2

You can and should use one EFI partition for all OSes installed. The only concern is if you have many OSes that there is enough space on it. But in most cases this is not an issue since efi files are small.

I found the solution to my problem thanks to some help from the Ubuntu facebook group. Basically i had to use the command sudo apt-get autoremove This is to remove packages installed by other packages which are no longer needed. This fixed every problem that I was having. I hope this helps anybody who is having this problem.

You can change the order of operating systems in GRUB using GRUB customizer. Install it using the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install grub-customizer Open it up and you can easily reorder operating systems under "List Configuration".

I haven't used Windows in a while, but as far as I understand, the issue only pops up when you write to the NTFS partition (files written from linux disappear when booting into windows). It is possible for a ubuntu (or any other linux based) system to read and write on a NTFS partition as long as you have ntfs-3g package installed. You can however mount the ...

It's not an unknown issue. There is a fix: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/09/dual-boot-fix-time-differences-between.html Worked for me ... the "issue" stems from the fact that Linux uses "UTC" [Grenwhich Mean Time or GMT, also referred to as Zulu] where as Windows uses your local time to set the system master time. Anyhow, hope the fix works for you too! ~J

The problem seems to be with the specific file /etc/grub.d/bin/grubcfg_proxy. Press Alt + F2 or open a terminal and run gksu nautilus. Browse to /etc/grub.d/bin/ and edit the permissions of grubcfg_proxy. It should run fine but if sudo update-grub displays error for some other file, repeat the process for that file.

You can have the same host name in each OS in a multi-boot system. However, if you are connecting to the network, your DHCP server may still have an active lease for that name, and Ubuntu tries to obtain a DHCP lease using the name you enter. If an active lease already exists, you may see the error you are getting. You can open your router or DHCP server's ...

Just to add something for clarification, usually when you "format a disk" the quick way, the data itself is not erased/destroyed - rather, the partition table where the map to your data was, is. The more you use your disk after the partition table is erased, the more you are overwriting the previous data, and making it harder to recover. As was pointed out ...

You are allowed to make a maximum of 4 primary partitions in a Disk thats why it cant create a 5th one. The solution to this you can use a partition tool like gparted which comes in ubuntu live cd or even bootable flash drive and create an EXTENDED PARTITION by choosing Create As : Extended Partition instead of Primary Partition

First of all, I'm going to explain what I think you did, so there aren't any misunderstandings which may lead you to lose your data, so please object if there is anything wrong. Before installing Ubuntu, the hard disk in question contained two partitions. The first one you call "C", with Windows operating system files on it and a second one you call "D" ...

When you format a disk, data is removed from that disk. What did you expect? Restoring a backup would be the best method. Some people have had results using the datarecovery help using testdisk, but that really depends on what you did to the disk after the installation. The more you use that system, the less likely it is to be able to recover what was ...

The time issue is due to how Linux and Windows store the time. Linux stores the time as UTC, where as Windows uses local time; this will cause issues when one of the OSs attempts to adjust/read the clock as it is not in the standard expected. You can solve this by setting a standard for both OSs to follow, as described here.

Now I saw your post. You can write in terminal: echo 3 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness Which will activate the maximum brightness of the backlights. It can take values from 0 to 3, so when you want to decrease it, you can just change the 3 with any other value within that interval. As a long term solution you could try making ...

Make sure your BIOS supports booting from USB - all modern PCs have that, but some may have it disabled in BIOS Settings by default - make sure legacy USB is also on if there is such option. If that doesn't work or is not the case, then try a different tool to make the USB bootable. For example, 1/10 cases when I used Unetbootin it didn't work, but with ...

Well, This is a very Interesting question, and the answer is yes. You can run a Windows Machine under Linux/KVM and use IOMMU GPU Pass-through to do a PCI Passthrough on your Graphics Card. This will however require an IOMMU compatible motherboard. This process also requires you to make some changes to your bios. You must use Virtio Drivers for your Windows ...

Eventually I found the answer: if you do not have one already, create a live CD or USB drive and plug it in your computer. Keep your BIOS settings on UEFI boot, and when the Logo comes up, press the key that makes your computer show the boot order menu. For my Toshiba Satellite C55 it was F12. Changing the boot order in the BIOS would not let me boot my ...

You found the initial problem that was causing Ubuntu emergency mode. It was trying to mount a dirty Windows partition in fstab. That happened because the NTFS file system was "dirty". It needs a chkdsk run on it from Windows, or, delete the NTFS partition from Ubuntu using gparted, and recreate the NTFS partition from a running Windows system. Cheers, Al

Ok, I just resolved: first I commented out the windows mounting instruction for the boot /etc/fstab, then I was able to start the system normally.

Found the solution. My motherboard is the Asus X99 Sabertooth. I had secure boot enabled and that was what was screwing with Ubuntu. For anyone with the same issue here is how you disable secure boot for newer Asus Motherboards.

Okat, it turns out what happened was I had installed windows in BIOS mode and ubuntu in UEFI mode, and boot repair had automatically converted windows from MBR to GPT and the windows boot manager didn't like that. What I ended up doing was creating a backup of ubuntu with rsync and formatted the whole drive, then reinstalled the both in UEFI and restored ...

Boot Ubuntu and mount your Windows partition (simply open the disk on Nautilus) Run the following on the command line: CtrlAltt: sudo os-prober If your Windows installation was found, you can run: sudo update-grub Note that step 2 is just for your convenience. You could just mount the Windows 7 partition and then run update-grub.
