    Wifi Adapter(s) Driver(s) Issues

    Hello Wiz, Searched for Nautilus, but was not found. Of course as noted in my above #2 comment; "Installed new updated system:Ubuntu 18.10" which when done discovered was not LTS - oops. Did mainly because of all the repository errors that I was getting, again wonder if I should start all...

    Wifi Adapter(s) Driver(s) Issues

    Still not able to add my drivers from disk. Only 1 that installed was the autoinstall with update. Could I be off in my commands?

    Wifi Adapter(s) Driver(s) Issues

    There seems to be only the onboard wifi and one adapter that are showing on the wifi network connections. Also I have a wireless mouse connected to usb. As to why I need so many, that tends to be a confidential matter, without giving away any real details I can just say I am something of a...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Well I went with the Mate, mate. With it on a flash drive I loaded mate and made sure the wifi was operational, then selected install from the desktop. When it offered me option to install - I selected Ubuntu Mate only - and allowed it to wipe the drive -removing windows boot and all. When...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Checked out the mate, only issue it seems to have is the same issue that the ubuntu had on a stick, dongle, usb flash install and that is it can not read the sd card. It recognizes the sd card but says the data is unreadable. I can't be sure it's just a driver issue, wanted to get all perfect...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Welllll, this certainly sounds like a good option, however lets be perfectly clear here.... Look at my partitions as they stand now. I have everything fully backed up, so not to worry. But what about efi, and boot seems to be in win... Have had conflicts before and you mentioned about needing a...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    This seems fairly discouraging. At this point it looks like I may want to forget about going dual boot and just try to get ubuntu to install alone, so maybe I should ask a new question as this is changing. The reason I am considering ubuntu alone is due to my reviewing windows 10 behavior as...

    Wiz, what you describe is very similar to what I have already tried, but appreciate the attempt. The X section is for research data.Looks like BlackNeos940 has been off about 10 weeks. I even had password login for the machine off when I tried to install last dual boots...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Well, I went ahead and experimented a lil. I went thru a full reinstall of windows 10 and then I deleted a very small partition and this is what I had at that point; Then I tried to install ubuntu and it only allowed a possible install of ubuntu while not recognizing win10. So I split the C...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Just tried another ubuntu install without changing anything and it failed again. A sure sign of madness, wanted to deliver my bonifide Mad Scientist credentials so there could be no doubt. At any rate here is an image of the new partition to compare with the old after partitions from before...

    hp 15-bs212wm Laptop won't boot with ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64

    Yes I too liked Klaatu, & similar bands like ELO, Beatles, Moody Blues... As to true age that's debatable , I do remember the times before birth and after, however the actual birth seems to have been wiped from my conscious mind, must have been traumatic experience. Since most people accept...

    Alas, That saucer has terrible filter clog with silica after sensors failed to warn of loose silica deposit when landing. What can we expect with these used vehicle salespersons? Will teach me to keep vents closed when landing. As to number of partitions deleted, I think it was 2 from each...
