EUFI Boot Problems Ubuntu

14 posts in this topic

Post #: 1   Posted

Ok, I've got Ubuntu dual booting with Windows 10 on 3 machines. My Office computer at work (UEFI) No problems at all.  My home computer, non EUFI, no problems. My laptop, EUFI, is the one I'm having issues with.. I have upgraded all 3 to 16.10 from

16.04 and only the laptop will not boot: Secure boot and fast boot are disabled. I restart, Grub comes up and if I let it boot, it gets to the Ubuntu 16.10 desktop with password field and cursor blinking, then a dialogue in the top right corner pops up stating,

"Wireless connections available" once that dialogue goes away it hangs, no mouse no keyboard, nothing moves, cursor no longer blinks in password field. The only option is to hold the power button until it turns off. Windows boots fine from Grub, I can also

drop down to Advance settings for Ubuntu and choose it, then I get the list of choices: umm, I can't remember them all but one is drop to root shell in which I have tried various commands to which none have worked. I can also hit "e" to edit grub. 

Any ideas?

Moved your question to it's own topic. Stickies are not for problem solving. I gave it a good title so it shows up on google and forum search.

Did you md5sum check your iso download?

And that laptop is? Got a link to a review or something describing your laptop?

With eufi , after setting i shutdown or do a cnt-alt-delete . On some if my memory is right you may have to enable

"legacy"   , but like Roky said the md thing and or check out it out on another computer or just make another bootable .

cnt-alt-delete still usually works instead of doing a complete restart since you still are  in the bios .

      Too better answer maybe we need the make and model of the laptop , cause eufi is great because of manufacturers

having better settings or alternative settings and more control .

         please let us know of you fix ,     I do a lot a booting with the new "eufi"

forgot to add sometimes you have to do it again and again to work ??

Did you md5sum check your iso download?  No, I am running Ubuntu from the same iso on 3 different systems with no issues. All started with same iso 16.04 from Ubuntu(Canonical) site, all are updated to 17.04.

And that laptop is? Got a link to a review or something describing your laptop? It is a custom from cyberpower.com.

I had to disable secure boot on the laptop. It ran 16.04 fine for a few months but when I tried to upgrade to 17.04 it just stops at the password field with no other option but to hold power button down to shutdown. It seems the wireless no longer works. I

can choose Advanced options > Ubuntu recovery > Then I get the options to Regular start, dpkg fix, update grub, etc. I usually update grub to mount the file system, then drop to root shell to execute commands. When I sudo apt-get install update, it

goes through the motions but says failed at every http: address involved in "getting" files from the internet. I will say, I do not have any files I'd have to keep. those are all on the Windows partitions with 3 deep backups. 3 deep meaning, #1 backup on

internal seperate HDD, #2 backup on internal seperate HDD, #3 backup to NAS in RAID 0. 

I just installed Ubuntu to learn Linux and do not have anything special I need to save. I do however want to be careful of the Windows partition.

 

Thanks!

I have a suggestion as I see a couple options.

Try a clean install of 17.04 as the wireless driver got messed up what ever you tried doing.

Use Rufus in Windows and make a boot usb stick. My favorite distro

then run inxi -F and post the output from terminal

This is  a beta but it should look like this.

Yeah. A inxi report is good. If wanting to learn Linux but keep windows around.

Instead of dual boot on internal hard drive. \

Run a Persistent USB Ubuntu linux install instead.

UNetbootin is so outdated in Windows use Rufus instead to make the bootable USB.

I tried to live boot antix and I get a black screen. Do I need to add the nomodset to the boot until I can install the Nvidia driver? Does Antix even work like that? I had to do that on the laptop with Ubuntu and Kali.

That should not have happened, yes try the nomodset if you have had to use it before.  Probably will have to use it with Linux for that rig.
