    Rooting without having to boot

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    So does Mike with his Ubuntu, if I understand it, correctly. Mike, can you clarify for us: When you go into BIOS Setup to boot Windows or Ubuntu, are both options listed in the same boot order tab, or do you have to switch between UEFI and MBR mode and back again to see and pick one over the...

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    @stan I am wondering if the following is of any assistance https://linux.org/threads/grub-and-nmve-disk-problems.29845/post-96339 There, @dos2unix says that the boot order must be regular SSD first, before the NVMe drive. Cheers Wiz

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    That's fine, Mike - thanks :) It was worth checking, because a lot of people are unaware that the content of 30_os-prober can actually override the content of /etc/default/grub In this case, it does not, so that's about me down for the count. So you could either try @LorenDB 's offering at...

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    First up, can you give me the output of the following, but just the line I will refer to? cat /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober The line I am interested in is at or near the bottom. If it says #adjust_timeout then delete the hash, save the file and then run sudo update-grub Then reboot the...

    Free books to read! FOSS books or books about FOSS.

    I'd stick with do it. Sometimes a Thread can have only one input and still be valuable, and therefore worthy of pinning rather than having it trail off into obscurity. Me neither, that's why I'm a Mod. :)

    Actually, I think the above 3 (albeit great) are better situated in Resources Make that 4, slow down mate :) This is about FOSS.

    Morning all :) Agreed, stan. Mike when you are up to it, please give us the content of your file /etc/default/grub You can use cat /etc/default/grub to display the content on Terminal without having to enter the file. Copy and paste the output into the Codes fields stan has explained...

    PC stopped during Kali Linux Installation What can I do now?

    Best contribution I have is not to use Kali if it is only your 2nd Linux used and you do not have 3 - 5 years experience, or installed Linux a couple of dozen times. Not being unkind, just straight up. I'll watch, and I can contribute something positive, I'll pitch it in. :) Welcome to...

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    G'day all :) First up, Mike's been catching his well-earned zzzz's, but by my watch it's now 9:20am his time and he has perhaps had his freshly-strained yoghurt, honey, bread, cheese and seasonal fruits and be ready to have at it. So let's first hear if he has a Grub Menu. his machine...

    Free books to read! FOSS books or books about FOSS.

    I can just delete #2 to this one, leaving it pristine, and leave it here, or pin it here. If it's left unpinned with no responses, it has a life expectancy of 3 to 4 weeks before it scrolls into page 2. Let me know your druther (I'd rather do this, I'd rather have that, is a "druther") ;)

    Post install Grub on separate partition

    Absolutely not, at present. This would simply install a newer version of Ubuntu over the existing, cumbersome, partition structure that needs a substantial revision. Not harsh words, just fact :) For this question, you really need to start a new Thread so that helpers can focus on the issue...
