Success!!! I found that I needed to disable fast startup on Windows for Ubuntu to successfully install. Steps to disable fast startup: Go to start screen and search for "change what the power buttons do" Click "change settings that are currently available" Scroll down and uncheck "Turn on fast startup". After fixing that, I did run into Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ...

I had to turn secure boot off before an Asus X200 would boot from USB. Things worked normally after that. The secure boot option is in the UEFI settings (BIOS), so if your machine is not a UEFI machine, it does not even exist.

All Windows 8 and above computers come with UEFI UEFI is the new thing that replaced BIOS in these computer. UEFI can be set to Legacy (BIOS) mode, but then Windows 8 and above won't boot. To dual-boot the computer with Windows 8 and Ubuntu, you have to keep the UEFI in its native mode. 32-bit Ubuntu is not compatible with UEFI. To dual-boot a computer ...

With a 500 GB portable drive you probably want to do a Full install rather than a Persistent install. In that case unplug your internal drive, boot the Live CD or Live USB, plug in your portable drive and do a normal Ubuntu install. There are many other methods including cloning an existing system. You can get more than 4GB of persistence with a persistent ...

Many new computers see a USB flash drive as just another hard drive. Can you set your flash drive as first hard drive in BIOS?

USB drive must be 2Gb size, 1 GB isnt enough for 14.04. The procedure is simple: 1. Download live ISO image; 2. Copy it into USB drive (either ISO content or image itself; I've used some Live Usb Creator, see link in the page below); 3. Boot from USB drive.

Maybe there's some way to fix it, but if you can't fix it and your computer is a desktop computer, get a 4-port PCI Express USB expansion card. I don't think you can get one of these cards anymore in a brick and mortar store, because these cards were mostly available back when motherboards without built-in USB ports were still being manufactured, but you can ...

Installing Ubuntu to (and running from) a USB drive is a very simple process. You can even have your documents stored on the USB drive permanently, using persistent storage (Stored in reserved extra space). Update: Because the default partition type is FAT32, you can't use more than 4GB. To get around this it has been suggested to use gparted - please ...

You might need to blacklist ath3k with echo "blacklist ath3k" | sudo tee /etc/modrobe.d/ath3k.conf Reboot and open a terminal and enter sudo modprobe ath3k to see if it makes a difference with your USB 3.0 ports as ath3k could be trying to load the firmware at a bad time.

Even if you do decide to follow these instructions, I suggest you read the LiveUsbPendrivePersistent wiki page. Reading Wiki pages is a great way to learn and you'll know more about what you're doing - rather than just following steps blindly. Normally, I'd suggest that you use the Startup Disk Creator in Ubuntu to do this - it has a really simple option: ...

The problem is that your SD is formatted with exFAT, which Ubuntu does not support natively. You have to install some extra packages to gain access to exFAT volumes. Please follow this answer here.

USB 3.0 disks have been compatible with Linux for quite some time now (some years, at least). Ubuntu 14.10 is using Linux kernel version 3.16, which is higher than 2.6. You can confirm this by opening a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T) and running: $ uname -r 3.13.0-43-generic (I'm on 14.04, which is currently on the 3.13 kernel version.)

There are no drivers in Linux, but name of the USB 3.0 module is the Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub, which doesn't help you at all finding hardware that matches this module exactly... :( That being said, if you want to buy hardware that has been tested on Ubuntu, just have a look at the Canonical certification catalog.

To complete this task, you should be able to use GNOME Disks. Install the gnome-disks package by running sudo apt-get install gnome-disks.

Seems to me I've run into that problem with a bad USB write from a good file -- unetbootin sometimes changes an ISO in a way that prevents it from booting successfully; dd makes a faithful copy that, in my experience, always works. It's also possible for a damaged partition to cause this kind of failure; recreating the partition table on the flash drive ...

In order to mount a device during boot, it has to be mapped in /etc/fstab, otherwise it will only be mounted when the user logs in because gnome or unity would detect external devices. First, you need to know the path to the usb device, which is not the same as /media/myUSB (that's where the device is mounted). To do so, execute: sudo fdisk -l You should ...

This is strange. I suggest you apply the 512 error fix. Maybe you have an UEFI PC and GRUB is struggling to determine what kind of bootloader to install on USB.

But whatever USB flash I use - with NTFS or FAT32 or EXT4 I keep seeing people recommend using a specific filesystem on USB drive. Wrong! WinUSB formats it. It doesn't care about your previous filesystem. The size of iso file is 4.3Gb, but that shouldn't be a problem for NTFS or EXT4. It has nothing to do with EXT4. The USB drive will be NTFS if ...

Huh, looks like I found a bug with the way 14.04 is installed. It turns out that whilst my USB card was eth2 on install, it got reassigned eth1 afterward, and the system tried to connect on eth2 (whatever eth2 may be, unless the onboard modem or wireless card counts as an ethernet interface). Replacing eth2 with eth1 in /etc/network/interfaces and bringing ...

All you have to do is take out the usb and plug it back in! That should fix your problem, as for why this specific feature/problem/annoyance exists? I think it is for security reasons.

It sounds like you may have a broken pendrive; go to a terminal and try these commands; ensure the pendrive is in fact /dev/sdc 1st though (use mount): sudo -i fdisk /dev/sdc p d p n b w This should give you a list of partitions; delete the only one there (if more, repeat 'd' until there aren't - whilst being careful that this is definitely the right ...

You might want to consider virtualbox for all these OS's. I would add some more memory, but I think in the end you'll find it much easier to manage than all those direct installs, especially since the windows boot loader doesn't play nice with any of the others.

You would probably have to look at some performance comparisons on line. If speed is your goal, you might, even though it would be a little bigger, use an SD card reader and get a high speed SDHC card with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). They're designed for video recording and fast throughput. I'm guessing your laptop doesn't have a memory card slot. I've been ...
