I need to move a Linux install (running Fedora 20) from one computer to another. When I transfer the drive it can't boot. I suspect the reason is that the install is set up as an EFI/Grub2, and the other computer doesn't support this configuration. How do I revert the install to regular BIOS/Grub2?
I am a new linux user who desires to create a home server. I followed every instruction i could think of which is relevant on how to do so using ubuntu server 14.04. I am using an HP compaq that has 2 ghz of processing power, 2 GB random access memory, and an 80 GB HDD. I am able to fully install everything that is available, with exception to the grub2 bootloader.
I recently upgraded my system from Fedora 14 to 16 by http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrad...dora_using_yum . All went quite smoothly except for one very odd problem. As you know this upgrade switches from grub to grub2. I created /boot/grub2/grub2.cfg with grub2-mkconfig and ran grub2-install without encountering any errors but when I restart I am taken to the grub prompt.
I want to install UBUNTU 14.04 on a USB3 32GB sandisk EXREME.
I Disconnect internal HDD during install.
No problem with install.
I Boot installed flash drive on other PC ok
My PC is HP DV7 and only booton grub2-efi bootloader.
I must install grub2-efi bootloader after install and BEFORE restart.
I need step by step instructions after ctrl+alt+F2 command.
