I’ve been working on this problem for over 10 hours. First of all, I installed Mojave using the Mojave patcher on an older MacBook. I completely erased my disk before installing Mojave. Here is the output of diskutil list:

Why am I still getting this error when I run boot camp assistant? I’ve already followed a guide that involved deleting any hidden Microsoft files in the EFI EFI partition. But I don’t think it really did anything because as I said, I completely erased this disk before installing Mojave. I’m at a complete loss here, and I’m desperate for help.
EDIT: I know this question has been asked before, but from what I can tell, no one has had this exact problem. On the posts I see involving this problem you can clearly see Microsoft partitions in the diskutil list. I have no visible Microsoft partitions. I performed a clean install. So I’m at a loss for why I keep getting the error.
I dun goofed. I thought my Windows was booting using UEFI, and I installed Ubuntu using UEFI. But now I think my Windows was booting using MBR, and GRUB can’t detect it.
I’m confident the disk is MBR:
> sudo gdisk -l /dev/sdb GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.3 Partition table scan: MBR: MBR only BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: not present
and that I’m booting via UEFI:
> ls /sys/firmware/efi/ config_table fw_platform_size runtime systab efivars fw_vendor runtime-map vars
How can I fix my GRUB so that it boots using MBR instead of UEFI?
Neither gave me a GRUB menu with Windows listed.
View from Disk Utility:
Output of diskutil (for this disk only):
/dev/disk6 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *80.0 GB disk6 1: Windows_NTFS 34.9 GB disk6s1 2: Linux 10.7 GB disk6s5 3: Linux_Swap 2.1 GB disk6s6 4: Linux 32.2 GB disk6s7
The first NTFS partition, “–“, mounts just fine as read-only. But I can’t get to either of the Linux partitions. I’ve tried
diskutil mount, and
diskutil mount readOnly, but but they all result in
Volume on disk6s5 failed to mount If the volume is damaged, try the "readOnly" option If the volume is an APFS Volume, try the "diskutil apfs unlockVolume" verb
diskutil apfs unlockVolume, but it’s not an APFS volume. Any ideas? Using macOS Sierra 10.12.6.
I recently installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my MSI GV62 7RE laptop (no dual boot, everything wiped). I installed it to the SSD drive, but since there’s not much space, I realize I will have to move some stuff to my HDD.
However, I’m unable to access my HDD. In the file manager, under the “Other Locations” tab, the disk is visible, but “locked” (encrypted). When I try to access the disk, or mount it, it simply disappears from view. When I reboot, it’s again visible under the “Other Locations” tab.
I’m really new to Linux, so the solution is probably easy, but I was unable to find something that worked when googling around.
My questions is about how to reset Ubuntu to its factory settings. I recently installed a gaming panel to manage servers and I am new to Linux. I am having some problems with it and would like to just delete and reinstall the panel on my Linux machine. Is there a way to completely reset the whole filesystem and restore the whole machine to its default/facotry settings state? (e.g. no packages installed, RootFS restored, all the stuff)
When attempting to add a Windows 10 (April 2018, build 1803) partition to my 2019 iMac, I get stuck on “Partitioning disk…” perpetually.
When I look at Disk Utility, the
BOOTCAMP partitions appear:
My iMac is running the latest stable release of macOS,

A 50 GB APFS volume was designated as the startup disk on my Mac running on macOS Mojave and there is 450 GB of unused space in another

I want to encrypt my disk but I want to know what is the best configuration, I currently use ths:
cryptsetup -v --cipher serpent-xts-plain64 --key-size 512 --key-file=- --hash whirlpool --iter-time 10000 --use-random luksFormat --type luks2 disk
Is there anything that can be improved?
I have been creating Tenser’s floating disk next to trees and climbing them to get on the disk. I usually do this just so I can rain literal fire on bad guys. I did this twice and I was asked to do skill checks. I’m fine with it, because I can understand that it’s a pretty cheese tactic.
My motive was that I can better avoid damage this way. I don’t move the disk around or anything, it just stays next to my makeshift ladder. Is this a legal usage of the Tenser’s floating disk spell?
I recently downloaded ubuntu xfce4 4.12 for my chromebook. It is running pretty smoothly and I want to make the full switch. Is there any way to allocate more disk space to xfce or just remove Chrome OS entirely?
Anything is helpful
