My laptop used to have three operating systems on the same hard disk: Windows, Ubuntu 14, Ubuntu 18. I tried removing Windows with OS-Uninstaller and got some error messages. I tried recovering with Boot-Repair, twice, and both times ended up with this message:
An error occurred during the repair.
You can now reboot your computer.
Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda1 file!
Should I really reboot my computer? Or should I rather try to repair the error?
My intuition is to rather try to fix the error, but I don’t know how to go about it. The main error in the log file that Boot-Repair produced appears to be:
grub-install: error: /boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition. grub-install --efi-directory=/boot/efi --target=x86_64-efi --uefi-secure-boot : exit code of grub-install :1 Error: no grub*.efi generated. Please report this message to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the same error as discussed in this thread. It is claimed there that the EFI system partition needs to be formated as
FAT file system. GParted shows that, while my EFI system partition
/dev/sda1 indeed used to be formatted in FAT, after running OS-Uninstaller and Boot-Repair it is now formatted as
ext3 file system. Could this be part of the problem?
Why does iOS require a passcode (not Touch ID or Face ID) after reboot? Is passcode more secure?
I have Timeshift scheduled to take a snapshot at regular intervals using rsync. What happens if I reboot during snapshot, will the incomplete snapshot be corrupt, will it be deleted, will it re-commence when I reboot. Also is it OK to delete the initial and earlier snapshots, are they incremental or is each one complete. I want to be sure I have reliable restore points but not too many. Thanks guys.
There is an HP notebook Pavillion DV6 4gb ram, 15 inch monitor single, HDMI and VGA connections, processor AMD A6. Successfully installed this Ubuntu 19 release. But, after a reset, it keep running monitor display 180 degrees rotated. Then , I use xrandr with NORMAL option, and it works only in my session: xrandr –output LDVS –rotate normal After a reboot, in a new session, the monitor appears INVERTED again. By the other hand, after adjusting monitor screen intensity with keypad buttons, after a reboot the screen appears with TOTAL light adjustment, again. How can I permanently set my config options.? Thanks in advance.
My computer gracefully restarted while it was idle.
last reboot shows the following output:
reboot system boot 4.18.0-21-generi Tue Jun 11 18:14 - 13:02 (18:47)
My question is: is there another log I can look at which will show me the cause of this reboot? The computer is fairly new so I doubt its a hardware issue, it has only happened once.
I’m concerned because I think the only way the computer can gracefully restart is if a user has root privileges, so I’m wondering if this was executed remotely.
How can I track the process that initiated this reboot?
Title is pretty self-explanatory. My phone’s power and volume buttons don’t work. The home button does. It’s a Lenovo ZUK Z2 Plus.
This phone has always had a tendency to crash unless rebooted occasionally. Now that the power button doesn’t work, I won’t be able to turn the phone on if it crashes and shuts down.
I’ve taken a complete backup, but I’d still like to continue using the phone for as long as possible. In order to prevent the inevitable crash, I’d like to reboot the phone every so often. How can I do so?
I am new to Mac OS (using Mojave on a MacBook Air 2017) and am running into an issue. I want to create a hidden local admin account that only I know exists. I followed a guide and enabled users under ID 500 to be hidden and got that to work. I then changed login options to “display name and password”. When I logged out it seemed everything was fine. But after a reboot, both accounts showed up with their name. Is there anyway to prevent the admin account from showing up after a reboot?
Thanks all ~
I got a brand new Verizon(unlocked) Galaxy S7 with Marshmallow on it. Tried to upgrade to Nougat using Smart Switch which got stuck at 36% for hours. Had to unplug and plug back back for recovery but in vain (my device didn’t show up in Emergency Recovery). I went into recovery mode and wiped cache and Factory reset but no use. My device refused to boot.
At the top of recovery screen, I see this
And, at the bottom, below Error:
No Support SINGLE-SKU dm-verify API: 3 E:failed to mount /system (Invalid argument)
Is there any way to fix it?
