Re-Install Ubuntu after it was down23 Apr 2019
Also published on S&C
My Ubuntu 18.04 LTS ran for a long time, and I did many things what maybe slow down the computer, what was worse, it could NOT boot normally as usual. When I checked the log file, found that it due to some error of the Elan touchscreen. May be some error of the EFI file, too.
So, I decided to re-install a new one.
As you know, I had Ubuntu and Windows 10 dual boot systems.
- I login to Windows 10 to do the backup job.
- Under the Windows 10, RUN PowerShell, with administrator.
diskmgmt.msc, WIPE the Ubuntu system partition. Mega them to one partition.
- Use Etcher to flash your Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, or other systems you want, to an USB disk.
- Insert the USB disk and boot to BIOS.
- Disable the secure boot, and choose USB driver first boot.
- There you go. Install the Ubuntu as normal.
REMEMBER to choose Install alongside the Windows boot manager
It is better for beginners, in my opinion.
BACKUP YOUR FILES FIRST!
