Bunsenlabs install on a lenovo ideapad

For USB drive ISO image installation I set Phoenix securecore Bios to secure boot with legacy support to get the USB recognised on boot and installer started.
During installation I had to reinsert the USB drive for the installer to recognise and mount.

When detecting disks to install and forcing the UEFI mode, the installer only detects the Sdb (usb) partition, it doesn’t detect the laptop internal hard disk at all.

How can I get the installer to find the hard drive?

Re: Bunsenlabs install on a lenovo ideapad

How did you transfer the ISO image to the installation medium?

I seem to recall I used Rufus with Windows 10

Re: Bunsenlabs install on a lenovo ideapad

Yeah, we've seen problems with that before — did you select "DD" [sic] mode?

The image will not work unless otherwise.

I always recommend USBWriter, that seems to work for people:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbwriter/

And as a last resort we could try enabling the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) by running this command from an Administrator prompt:

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Then open a (bash) shell in the Ubuntu user space that command enables and use the UNIX tools instead, like a civilised person  angel

Re: Bunsenlabs install on a lenovo ideapad

^ haha. That's a good one! A task that I would love to take on but just don't have the time too, would be to build Bunsenlabs into a Docker image, then run it through Windows just for lulz.

At any rate, I have started using Etcher.io. It really doesn't get much easier than that and can confirm it works reliably to burn Linux iso's to USB in a Windows environment. Coincidentally, Etcher.io is built atop a Javascript api called Electron. While I shudder at the thought of building everything in the world in javascript, there seems to be quite a large number of apps in its database.

Re: Bunsenlabs install on a lenovo ideapad

My laptop is currently running lubuntu. Will I be okay to just download iso again and use startup disk creator?

I think so, yes.

This is the preferred method:

sudo cp example.iso /dev/sdX ; sync

If you press the <Tab> key after you have typed in /dev/sd then the shell will list all of the available drives, be sure to pick the correct letter (try using <Tab> a few times with the stick plugged & unplugged and see which device appears and disappears from the choices) and do not add a partition number.
