comment Disk /dev/root full, but cannot identify the reason
Are you actually running Ubuntu? That /dev/root and devtmpfs stuff doesn't show up on Ubuntu... iirc, it is older versions of redhat that do that.

comment How to clean up partitions when partition that 'does not start on physical sector boundary' is not listed in gparted?
The message appears to be a bug in fdisk since you don't have a partition 4. Partition 3 on the other hand, seems to be the one that does not start on a physical sector boundary. Since it is just an extended partition, that is fine so you can ignore it.

comment SSD & Security & wipe Oh My
Using the ATA SECURE ERASE feature ( see hdparm ) will erase everything, including the reserved erase blocks. This also leaves all erase blocks in the erased state, unlike writing zeros to all logical blocks.

Check dmesg for more detailed errors, and return it for a refund?

comment How do I move several LVM VG's on a pair of software RAID5 arrays from one Ubuntu install to another?
Yes, Ubuntu should automatically activate any lvm volumes when you plug the disk in. You may want to add them to /etc/fstab if you want them to be mounted in specific places.

What do you mean? If you are installing the new OS on the same computer, then there is nothing to move.

comment Should I partition?
Question really doesn't make sense: if you know that partitioning exists, then by definition it is possible. Necessary? For what purpose?

comment What happen if I copy data from a Full Disk Encrypted to another computer?
The whole disk is not decrypted when you log in... the data is decrypted on the fly as you read it.

comment Bad Sectors on Lubuntu?
Yes, windows only checks its partition. Your disk is failing and needs replaced.

comment how to install Ubuntu Server with GPT GUID Partition Table
@ZMWei, correct. The auto option will create either the bios_grub or efi system partition depending on whether the machine supports uefi or not.

comment SED (self encrpyting disk) is crashing on system resume
The linked article is incorrect with regards to suspend. During suspend, power to the drive is always cut, so it will need unlocked again.

comment Ubuntu Suspend issue with Self Encrypted Disk
@Xqua, does it prompt for the password when you resume windows? It must somehow notice that the system is running linux and change its behavior. Whatever the reason, there is no way to ask the bios to unlock the drive; it just has to do it prior to resuming the OS.

comment Ubuntu Suspend issue with Self Encrypted Disk
@Xqua, it isn't something that is told to the bios... it is just something the bios is supposed to do: it asks you for the password during boot, and hands it to the drive... it has to hand it to the drive again when resuming from a suspend, before resuming the OS.

comment Dvd md5 same as iso, sha1 and sha256 not
Well, if you are using the same cdrom, and the same size number each time, then it shouldn't be possible for one to agree and the other two not to.

comment Dvd md5 same as iso, sha1 and sha256 not
Ok, yea.. just making sure you were really giving the number and just omitted it in the question instead of literally trying to pass "'size'" to dd
