Hello :

 

Since the 500 GB HDD couldn't pass SeaTools for DOS, I went nuts and plugged it out and plugged-in another HDD. There was an old installation of Ubuntu Mate 14.04 that never launched (Black screen and the underline blinking).

Had no idea of what could happen so I just ran SeaTools for DOS on the Seagate 2 TB and it passed all the tests.

- Does it need more partitions ?

- Would you install another distro ? even Windows ?, let's say just for playing classic games ?

- Should I run other texts just to be sure everything's fine ?

 

Thanks.

Hey Terokal

 

1. No more partitions needed.

 

2. You can install another distro but I suggest to learn One first.  Normally you would install Windows First, and then install Linux after, it's much easier that way.

 

Out of curiosity would you run, and post the outcome so we can see your partition information, thanks:

Curious as to what you ended up installing with, UEFI or Legacy.

sudo parted -l

3. No other texts needed if all is working good.

 

I think we would all benefit to know what computer you are on.  So let's use a tool a friend of mine just taught me.  This Module will/should tell us what type of pc you are on.  

 

To install it run this as usual:

sudo apt-get -y install hwinfo

To find the computer info run this command:

Please post this back and save it for your future needs.

sudo dmidecode | grep -A3 '^System Information'

Keep us informed to all your Linux Joy!  Looks like you did a good job!

 

Did you Update and Activate your Firewall?

 

pc out

A friend of mine also sent me a lot of commands but I told him that I'd wait for your instruction on which one was the best. Guess he had too much vegemites when he wrote me an e-mail.

Yes, firewall was the first thing I activated before all the software updates.

This command you taught me years ago (Nov. 12th, 2015).

We can see that you installed with Secure Boot Enabled "Partition Table: gpt"  This will allow you to have up to 128 Partitions if ever needed.

 

I can only guess that this was a custom build because of this output, but don't have any experience with that Module Command.

Hi pcpunk :

So far it's working better than I thought. Wow, 128 partitions. If I ever need to I'll ask for help.

Don't think I want to install another OS right now.

No issues when starting the PC, and shuts down in seconds.

Just getting used to new software. Missing some that are not in the software boutique, but I can download them using Terminal.

Thank you so much.

Cheers.
