In Topic: Installation Error

04 November 2017 - 10:28 AM

Power up your PC and press Esc when the hp logo shows up on the screen
Press F10 to enter the BIOS and choose "System Configuration" to the far right. Then choose "Boot Options" from the drop down menu. Scroll down and let us know what you have there? "Legacy", "UEFI Hybrid" or "UEFI Native". Just a guess here right now, I suspect that grub is not seeing your EFI file...

I'm running Bodhi on a hp and playing dvd's is not an issue after the steps I referred to above, but let's try to fix your other issue first.

EDIT: Just one more thing. As above, but pressing F9 instead. Do you get an option to boot from an EFI file? If so follow the path and write it down on a piece of paper. You can use this PATH to create a custom boot if that turns out to be needed.

If there's nothing to loose on that drive, I would boot using a gparted usb, reformat the drive and do a clean install.
You can get gparted ISO from https://sourceforge....ojects/gparted/
Just use dd to get it onto an usb and then boot the PC with it.
You mentioned that you were able to boot before. The reason I asked if it was an hp, is that I've converted a five hp's to Linux and in some I had to create a custom boot in the bios in order to be able to boot in EFI mode. But, you said it has worked before.

Or just wait to see if Charles or anyone else has another suggestion.

By any chance, is this an HP laptop? If so, what model and year...

If not, just forget about it!

Regarding the dvd's, it will be the same in any distro. To play "regular" dvd's as they are encrypted you have to...

sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg

followed by

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Now you can play any dvd you want.


Ask again if you are having any issues :)

Firefox is at version 56 and firefox ESR at 52.
Using Firefox 45 is, IMHO a security risk.
