This can cause errors with the drive and while once mounted it functions normally the superblock may have errors causing it to not mount correctly.

It seems Ubuntu doesn't like your hardware, perhaps video card. So the first task is to save documents from the hard drive. Good (and easier) idea is also to try different live Linux distributions, e.g. "Boot-repair-disk" (not for boot-repair, but to access the drive), etc. Another (and hard for a newbie) way is to try the way through a console (as long as ...

I got some solutions for your problem.I don't know what tutorial or method you are following. First about the BIOS options you couldn't find. Its because of the version of BIOS. Every system has different version of BIOS. That's why you couldn't find those options. Second If you reinstall windows 10 all your files and data won't be deleted unless you ...

You needn't panic, Alice. I know what term papers can be, right?! Firstly, did you keep the document file in a drive other than the one in which you installed the Windows OS? If that's the case, it will be safe if you reinstall Windows using the recovery disk. Secondly, regarding MS Office, you can use the key after you do a fresh install of the same after ...

The problem turned out to be more complicated than originally thought and kept re-appearing on reboot. Thanks a lot to @nakasya for pointing out that it's a bug in fwupd that appeared when upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04. Refer to Problems with Audio device - Ubuntu 16.04 . The temporary workaround until the fix is included in the main release is to run sudo ...

Here is a solution that worked for me. First, some data which may be relevant to your case. I have two machines with AsRock's Z97 boards. One is Z97 Fatality. I have checked and determined I don't suffer from this usb error causing boot-stall on that. If you have this board and are suffering from this issue, let me know and I will post my BIOS usb ...

A workaround I found, was setting up a virtual machine (both VirtualBox and VMWare [player] should be ok) with any linux distro you want, I configured it to be compatible with USB 2.0 protocol. Once I redirect my USB device to the VM I can scan from there.

I found the problem. The laptop CPU (Celeron M360 @1.4GHz with a 400MHz bus speed) does not support PAE, some sort of memory management in the CPU. The only solution is to install a version of Ubuntu older than 12.04 or another distro.

So we've already established in comments that you're trying to run Ubuntu and install it on the same disk at the same time, which isn't going to work. Where you want to have a portable version of Ubuntu on a USB drive, you have two options to choose from: Live USB with persistence Instructions here (This is part of the walkthrough for using LiLi USB ...

The software you are mentioning isn't safer than the one built into Ubuntu. No need to purchase anything special. The software you are talking about uses "256-bit AES encryption" according to their website. You can have an encryption using the same algorithm using the "cryptsetup" on Ubuntu with a regular thumb drive, see for example: ...

I finally solved it. First, install the dependencies, then build and make v4l-dvb as described here. After doing this, the stick was detected and the "unclaimed" disappeared. However, I still didn't get a signal. To get it, the following drivers are needed in order to make it work: dvb-demod-si2168-02.fw and dvb-demod-si2168-b40-01.fw I've downloaded ...

Try opening a terminal and running sudo update-grub. This command should automatically search for and add all OSes found to the GRUB boot menu. I'd recommend trying this before trying boot-repair.

Boot from a Ubuntu flashdrive again and select try ubuntu option. Then install Boot Repair on the live session and run it with recommended options. I believe it will fix the problem otherwise post the pastebin link that boot-repair provides here.

Your chipset from Realtek is badly supported, a quick Google search shows lots of similar problems under linux. A driver for your chipset is available on Github.

It looks like something not set correctly in BIOS. So first go to the BIOS (look which Fxx key is the "BIOS-entry" key on your model of computer) and look around. There may be Allow USB boot option somewhere. If there is -> enable it. Than search for Boot order menu. You should set the "boot from USB" before "boot from HD". Make sure that you have the ...

Have you tried another app to do it? UNetBootIn is a good one (and does not require any installation, just download, unpack, launch and go). I remember the same issue when I'm tried to create a Live USB with a non-Ubuntu distro.

You can use ubuntu on a usb pen as a standard installation only if it has persistence. If you just mounted the iso as live cd you can't. To use persistence follow this guide or this one

I've been having the same problem with my machine for some time now. The problem exists on different distributions (I tried Ubuntu 15.10 and Arch kernel 4.4.7-1-lts).

I managed to get pass through this. Apparently my fastboot was too old on my Ubuntu 14.04LTS. I downloaded the newest android SDK from it's website. Then I moved the fastboot from /usr/bin then placed the fastboot from the downloaded SDK to /usr/bin. mv /usr/bin/fastboot /usr/bin/fastboot1 ln -s /home/nayar/sdk/platform-tools/fastboot /usr/bin/fastboot

Applying the "Permanent fix using the defective bootable USB itself" from LeoRochael's answer for the same problem in 14.04LTS in the link below http://askubuntu.com/a/746412/534406 works (worked for me going from 14.04LTS to 16.04LTS). This has the advantage that future boots from the USB stick will go to the graphical interface.

How much time has Rufus take to copy everything to the drive? Have you tried mounting the ISO you've downloaded? I ask this because the copy haven't gone well: it should be more folders and files into your boot drive. So try to verify the image you have downloaded, and if it looks okay try again using another flash drive. If the verification show an SHA ...

You cannot have more than one options line for the same module. The first two indexes are taken by the two HDA devices, so it is not possible to force the USB device to have index 1. To move the second HDA device to the third index, use something like this: options snd-hda-intel index=0,2

As you have downloaded the file, remember where you have downloaded. Extract it to a file and name it Driver or any other name. For me I name it Driver. Right click on this Driver file to take a look at properties and we can see where the file is kept so that the command can be put into terminal. This is what I saw in the extracted file under properties ...

Press TAB when that happens (when you boot and the error message appears) and then you will be able to choose between options (live, live-install, ...). Type live, press ENTER and it will boot you into the live try from there you can install. I just did it last night. Some kind of systemUSB issue, no idea.

If the USB doesn't boot, sometimes this happens to me, you must remove any HDDs/SSDs and boot via USB with NO HDD/SSD in. Then plug in the HDD/SSD after you've booted onto the USB. It can also be because of how you made the media, which if you know it works by testing on other PCs, then you need to do as said above. If you still can't get it to work, try ...
