Hi, I have a multi-boot setup with two external USB HDs. One external hard drive takes a long time to power off[10 to 15sec]? If not power off competly on a restart, it will send me to grub rescue[device not present?] Can I increase the time that the computer is powered off during a restart? Right now I have do a shutdown, wait, and power back on. I am on Ubuntu 13.10 64b right now.
I am having problems with my computer booting. I start the computer and it goes to initial boot sequence, however it remain on a black screen with a white dash blinking. It can go on for hours and ubuntu won't load up. I sometimes have to turn the computer on and off for 5 time before Ubuntu loads. I am using ubuntu 10.04 LTS desktop edition and 32 bit server.
but 1st time i could not download all updates...but it "appears restart now"..
then I restart my computer..( but still I connected my usb drive.)
after restart my laptop it normally opened win 7....!!!!!!!
I'm running Ubuntu Server 12.4 and I have installed ubuntu-desktop.
At first, I tried to connect to WLAN after installing some GUI components but didn't work so I modified /etc/network/interfaces according to Ubuntu instructions and connected to WLAN and Internet perfectly for few days, but now it's not so.
Every time I shutdown and start ubuntu server again I have to run /etc/init.d/networking
I have ubuntu 11.10 64bit, everything worked fine but after i uninstalled the airtime dj app i can't restart or shutdown my pc !! The only way to reach at the screen showing that system is going to shutdown is via terminal but it stucks and never shuts down !
I can't even restart it !
I can suspend my pc fine but can't shutdown or restart it.
