Installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on Lenovo Think Centre
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 13, 2013
When I tried installing Ubuntu 12.04 on Lenovo Think Centre I faced some problems with the UEFI boot mode.
When I installed Ubuntu in dual boot with windows7, the PC booted windows7 directly without displaying the boot window.
When I installed Ubuntu on the whole drive, the system displayed the following error:
Error 1962: No operating system Found.
Apparently the problem was with the (U)EFI boot mode.
Anyhow, I solved these problems, but it took me some time!
1) Install Ubuntu 10.04, on the whole drive, or side by side Windows. Ubuntu will run without any problems with the boot, this is because it uses legacy boot mode.
2) Run the Ubuntu 12.04 installation from a CD/USB stick.
3) In the disk partitioning section, choose "Something Else"
4) Delete the Ubuntu 10.04 partition while keeping the Linux swap partition as is.
5) Choose the now freed disk space for a new partition and set the entry point as "root" (/).
Help installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 10, 2013
I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and I recently got my first UEFI based laptop and I wanted to install Ubuntu on it alongside Windows 8. I created a live USB using Unetbootin and when I boot into the USB drive, a GRUB menu comes up. When I press Try Ubuntu or install Ubuntu, my screen either goes black or turns off entirely. I tried using the nomodeset option but that doesn't work. One time a sort of terminal window appeared but I had no idea what to do. I tried disabling secure boot but doesn't seem to help. I also tried using a different USB drive and also tried creating a live USB using Universal USB installer. I also tried Ubuntu 13.04. That doesn't work either.
I'm sorry if similar questions have been asked in the forum but I haven't been able to solve my problem
Installing ubuntu 12.04 LTS on IBM x3850
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2014
I have some old stuff that want to use now for dev proposes, and wanted to install unbuntu on that. Server is:
IBM X3950 and it has
(LSI-MFI) ServeRaid MR-10k
The problem is, that ubuntu installed cannot detect my raid HDD, so i tried to find the correct module, and according to that:
MFI is correct driver, but unfortunately there is no mfi on the installation cd. How i can install system on that hardware ?\
I also see that that controler and that server is supported here:
for version 10.04 LTS, but it's uncommon that newer version of ubuntu is not supporting older hardware.

Unable to start Windows 7 after installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 14, 2013
I hate starting new thread about a problem already encountered by others. But I tried the solutions and did not work:
1) sudo grub-update ==> Did NOT work
2) Boot Repair (Recommended settings) ==> Did NOT work
3) Boot Repair (Advanced Settings - "repair windows boot files") ==> option disabled ==> Did NOT work
4) Windows 7 repair ==> Did NOT work
I have a windows 7 Ultimate x64 plus Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, both on partition C. Partition D is for my files, Partition E is also for my files but encrypted with
BitLocker (I have the recovery key and know the password). All partitions are NTFS.
THE PROBLEM: after booting, 4 options appear: Ubuntu, Ubuntu Recovery Mode, Memory Test, Windows 7. Selecting windows 7 brings a black screen
for 2 seconds then I get back to grub menu.
What options do I have other than formatting C again and installing Windows...?
here's my boot-repair log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5872398/

Intermittent audio / sound output after installing ubuntu 12.04 LTS
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as a second OS (Windows 7 being the original one).
I haven't tested it extensively, but so far, it seems to work fine... more or less.
When I plug my headphones to my laptop I keep hearing this intermittent sound that comes on and off every second, aprox. It's like the sound you hear when you start using an audio app (Rythmbox, YouTube video, etc.) after being doing something unrelated with audio for a while (editing text or whatever); it's like an "audio output ready" sound, but you normally hear it only once when you start listening to music, for example.
What's strange is that when I listen to music in Rythmbox or I watch a video on YouTube, the sound is ok, it's normal, but if I stop using an audio app and leave my headphones on, then the intermittent sound begins.
Has any of you experienced something like this? If so, how did you fix it?
Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (LAMP)
- date: May 10, 2012
First Login as root
Installing MySQL 5
apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
You will be asked to provide a password for the MySQL root user - this password is valid for the user [email protected]
as well as [email protected]
, so we don't have to specify a MySQL root password manually later on:
New password for the MySQL "root" user: <-- yourrootsqlpassword
Repeat password for the MySQL "root" user: <-- yourrootsqlpassword
apt-get install apache2
Now direct your browser to http://127.0.0.1, and you should see the Apache2 placeholder page (It works!):
apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
We must restart Apache afterwards:
Testing PHP5 / Getting Details About Your PHP5 Installation
Now we call that file in a browser (
