    Issues with starting a Linux install.

    Lemme guess, finding mentions of so-called « certified » Ubuntu flipped the switch that triggers envy? :p I picked the "end-of-life" Inspiron 15 3520 model, euh... To be honnest i'm not so sure what i got exactly 'cause what was on the the purchasing page (before my credit card payment was...

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    That's not the point. Since you seemed to prefer Ubuntu i though maybe it would help to evaluate 'Linux lite', euh... 7.0 If 'dnf' by CLi is your thing, perhaps 'AlmaLinux', 9.4 with *boot.iso and *minimal.iso variants, etc... Actually i've seen network-ready versions too, but that's no good...

    Anyone switching back to Windows 11 for this awesome "feature"?

    Maybe after it followed a very same route as Edge: the Microsoft browser which they actually compiled for Linux as well... Then only if it's Windows 10 or lower, until i get a reliable replacement for 'MSPaint' that no longer cause this behaviour to ever occur again: Fix once, break many...

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    3rd column from the left, titled "view" in the english version it seems, then search for info.

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    No boot media found on reboot spells install failure to me but it doesn't mean there's no way to boot at all. From a live session using 'GParted', does the "gpt" string show up on its left-side panel with the destination drive selected?

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    There's more in the alphabet soup i could have mentioned, like AHCI indeed, whatever. A pause may seem desirable so you can gain better perspective from seeking additional information, e.g. before making any changes... Puppy has HardInfo too.

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    The slogan « Fix once, break many » verifies again and again, unable to retain what "works" when finally it does i'm afraid! I too seen Mint succeed with its install (once i patched it, before proceeding with Rufus i think...) then eventually observing it perform self-destruct over an...

    Solved 23.04 LTS will not boot after install.

    1st i'd try to collect information relative to partition & file systems, preferably using HardInfo which is pre-installed in some "LIVE" versions as MX, etc. My previous ia32/x86_64 hybrid bootloader tablet made it difficult to find a match and updates killed my install both in the case of Mint...

    Do I necessarily need rufus or another tool to install an OS iso on a laptop with a usb boot?

    A couple years ago i had a habit of manually "patching" ISOs, incl. Mint' with 'ia32' components so to self-install on my former Atom 32/64 hybrid tablet. It worked at 1st but then auto-updates caused it to self-destroy, eventually... Idem for MX of which 1 release worked out of the box once...

    Dell Inspiron 15 3520 as replacement for Insignia NS-P11W7100

    UPDATE: Once i paid closer attention to Celluloïd i started to realize it was tempting to interpret the numbers just a little further, aided here with colour: [ https:// i.postimg.cc/mgLbKjqd/Dell-Inspiron-15-3520-Non-Live-MX23-3-Emerging-patterns-2024-May-30-950x290.png ] This initial...

    Do I necessarily need rufus or another tool to install an OS iso on a laptop with a usb boot?

    If it doesn't pass the double test of loading from a 'YUMi-exFAT' USB flash unit then survive rebooting after an install (from its "live" RAMDisk) that's just too bad but i've started to feel very selective these days. By chance there's enough to get busy with periodic updates and all... Think...

    Dell Inspiron 15 3520 as replacement for Insignia NS-P11W7100

    There's been a new release of MX recently, so i gave it some fair try exploring many different situations: [ https:// i.postimg.cc/1RWLktKZ/Dell-Inspiron-15-3520-running-permanent-MX23-3-setup-2024-May-30-1080x330.png ] If it weren't for the late transition to pipewire i'd have my favourite...

    Dell Inspiron 15 3520 as replacement for Insignia NS-P11W7100

    Salutations! Earlier this month i needed to "upgrade" my hardware so i got a Dell NoteBook S/T "B92LTW3", the Inspiron 15 3xxx (End-of-Line) series with board 0DVVYG A00 inside, except those details didn't appear until it was in my hands... Anyway i've done my best to decide which Linux breed...

    Intel Blames Motherboard Makers — BIOSes Disable Thermal and Power Protection, causing issues

    Disabling the external HDMi display during boot time was NOT my idea; yet it may have been this way before i noticed, from the begining. Anyway it sort of worries me still not having a BiOS recovery flash drive, being too lazy (after getting drained...), just assuming Dell's safeguards can...

    Intel Blames Motherboard Makers — BIOSes Disable Thermal and Power Protection, causing issues

    It arrived swiftly, ~2 weeks ago. Yet if i were Dell i'd only need to argue that Windows 11 Fam "S" is working as they expect. It turns out Dell would be correct, as long as i used Windows my favourite VLC application and BlueTooth earphones it provided me solid performance (i could move, even...

    « If it ain't broke don't fix it. » I wish! :rolleyes: « If you can't fix it don't break it. You reap what you tweak. » There's a trap hidden in every corner indeed. :eek: ... Data collection goes on, quite patiently, e.g. much slower than initially planned. At least it's clear the...

    Intel Blames Motherboard Makers — BIOSes Disable Thermal and Power Protection, causing issues

    The 3rd one, entirely devoted to Win11 (1p3): Sounds like advice i might want to keep in mind! But i'm afraid nothing can embelish the sort of dull experience i had with Dell so far, downloading Ubuntu Cinnamon only reminded me it now insists to NOT ignore my exclusive Win11 'ESP' partition...

    Intel Blames Motherboard Makers — BIOSes Disable Thermal and Power Protection, causing issues

    Well, "polite" means i performed the un-bitlocking via Windows exclusively, switching to Linux only after the partition had been reduced and a reboot still using Windows would happen to agree. Ah, and while i think of it i also saved my keys before touching anything... Back to the announced...

    Intel Blames Motherboard Makers — BIOSes Disable Thermal and Power Protection, causing issues

    That's a topic which made me curious considering i've recently purchased one of their Inspiron 15 3520. Install? Inside MicroSoft's new cage called the 'Windows Subsystem for Linux' (WSL) perhaps?!... Well, initially i found it was necessary to be polite with Win11 Fam "S", which refused to...
