I recently built a computer and yesterday I installed Ubuntu 13.10 onto it. I got some weird issues tho.
Here's the build:
- Motherboard: ASRock B85M Pro 4
- Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz
- Kingston HyperX Blu 4096MB DDR3 PC-12800 1600MHz
- BitFenix Phenom Micro-ATX
- FSP Group PowerSupply (PSU) FSP400-60APN 400W (Bulk)
- OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD
At first I plugged the SSD into a Sata 3 slot but this didn't work as Ubuntu wouldn't find it (but it would show up in UEFI). So I moved it to a Sata 2 slot and I could finally install Ubuntu.
The problem is when rebooting ubuntu. Sometimes the boot order gets reset. I got a 2TB HDD on SATA_1, a 1TB on SATA_3 and the SSD on SATA_5. I've set the SSD on highest boot order in UEFI but at some point this is reset to once again have the 2TB HDD as highest priority. At some occasions the SSD isn't even in the list and I have to reboot again for UEFI to list it.
Other times it would boot until it gets to GRUB but leaves me with only the purple background. After pressing reset I usually manage to come inte GRUB normally. Then after GRUB the problems continue. Sometimes Ubuntu will fail to find the root file system (located on the SSD, the boot manager is also on the SSD) and leave me in busybox and I have to reboot again and then it usually boots normally.
This is a pretty big issue as I intend to use it as a file and media server so I need to be able to reboot it remotely and be certain it will reboot properly.
