I’m currently working on several IBM desktops that we are going to use for a charity. I’m trying to get Ubuntu 18.04 installed and as I’ve tried several installs, I notice that the first attempt fails. Ubuntu installs, but grub doesn’t.
If I install it again, then it works. Since we’re using this as a teaching tool, I don’t want to force students to have to install ubuntu twice. Currently, the disks have blanked NTFS partitions. The desktops are ThinkCentre i5 systems, M series.
I’m trying to sort out how best to handle this. Hopefully, I don’t have to repartition each hard disk before we have the students install Linux.
In any case, I’m not sure what’s causing it, so I was hoping for a tip or two to start troubleshooting…
