G'day brij-linux, Welcome to Linux.org

The instructions below are the ones to follow.

ubi-partman failed with exit code 10 - ubuntu 18.04
http://askubuntu.com/questions/1032905/ddg#1033275

Do the following (for beginners):

I assume you already have a flash usb with ubuntu .iso

  1. Boot your usb on try ubuntu
  2. Ubuntu Software > install Gparted
  3. Open gparted, right click on you desired partition to install Ubuntu > new > New Size : 200 MiB; filw system: fat32; > Add ; Something like this should be done:
  4. Right click on EFI partition just created, Manage flags > boot
  5. Apply changes on gparted then exit gparted
  6. Install Ubuntu, when appears where to install choose something else>
  7. double click on efi partition, choose EFI
  8. Double click on desired partition to install ubuntu, choose ext4, mount point "/"
  9. Install

Hi Condobloke!

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 20.04 on my lattop and getting this same error. To be honest it's a reinstall, because I had everything working and then messed it up by deleting a partition in the Disks app - my fault.

Anyway, I don't care too much about saving data I just want a system which will boot. The laptop is alittle unusual in that it has a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD - I want to boot off the SSD to make the boot a bit faster.

The SSD is UEFI (I have to admit I don't really understand that) - but I know I had the system booting and working fine (Ubuntu only) for 2 years until I muffed it a couple of days ago.

I followed your instructions and made a small EFI partition (it's actually 512Mb) bootable
I noticed that the rest of the disk (ext4) is also bootable
But rerunning the installation I still get the same error - I looked at the syslog in var/log and if I understand correctly, the relevant lines are:

Code:

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks so much mate!
