In Topic: installing bodhi on a gpt disk

20 May 2017 - 05:36 PM

the installer was kind enough to tell me the first couple times:

 

if you continue, the changes below will be written to the disks.

the partition tables of the following devices are changed:

scsi1 (0,0,0) (sda)

the following partitions are going to be formatted:

partition #1 of scsi1 (0,0,0) (sda) as ext4

partition #5 of scsi1 (0,0,0) (sda) as swap

 

the final (successful) installation i got:

 

the following partitions are going to be formatted:

#1 as esp

#2 as ext4

#3 as swap

 

i even made notes the last unsuccessful time that it sounded like the gpt was going to be changed, but wanted to give it a shot and see. that is when i finally popped up here to see if you kind folk could point me in the right direction :)

for the win :) again, thank you all for the helpful suggestions

 

edit: i used both suggestions. i created the live usb with dd and made sure to boot in uefi mode specifically so i don't know which was "the" answer, but had to pick one for the solution so :)

 

now to figure out what to do with all 128 partitions :P

thank you for your kind words of welcome from singapore :) i have been in san antonio for about a decade so my knowledge of the spurs starts in the era of david robinson and the twin towers he anchored with tim duncan. it wasn't until i moved here that i learned of the iceman george gervin (george "iceman" gervin). we have a local grocery store that stars some of the spurs in its tv ads and he shows up in them from time to time. one of the reasons i mention him is that he has an alternative school here for kids who don't do as well in a traditional learning environment. i like that version of giving back :)
