Well, today is indeed a sad day. After many hours of tweaking and trying to fix this, I am officially giving up on putting Ubuntu on my external hard disk. I have tried three times with many fixes and tweaks, but just can’t get it to work. I have no idea what is wrong with it and do not intend to find out. I go though the installation, everything is fine, I reboot, it boots, I login, restart, and then it dies. It just keeps giving me the loading scree, I wait a few minutes, and then a error message comes up. Oh well, at least I gave it a try. One tip, if you want both Ubuntu and WIndows, just dual boot, it’s much easier.
