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....!!!!!!!
First time, the VirtualBox crashed once I clicked Restart Now.
The second time, I read that you have to force-eject the ISO, but when I did this, it froze the Virtual Box so I could no longer click Restart Now
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
