Hi again,

I tried hard to make Ubuntu Server work in my two computer with UEFI, 
but failed. 'oldfred' at the Ubuntu Forums tried too, and was affected 
by another bug. So it seems Ubuntu Server makes 'Faulty Towers' ;-) See 
the following links




It is important to keep Lubuntu Alternate alive :-)

Best regards
