I recently purchased a Crucial SSD that I've seen others online be
successful with. However, I seem to be SSD challenged.
I'm trying to use this as my only disk in a laptop. I started by
creating an MBR partition table, had no luck there, then moved to a
GPT partition table, and still no luck. This is roughly how I tried
to get things working:
1. fdisk -S 32 -H32 -c
2. new primary partition (/boot) starting at sector 2048 (+512M)
3. separate partitions for / and /home after that
Booting this way took over an hour just to see a pointer, and never
saw a gdm login screen. So *if* this is working, its extremely,
2. new 1M partition ef02 at the beginning of the disk
3. separate 0007 (Windows/Linux) /boot, /, and /home partitions after that
This just boots to a big aubergine screen, but no disk activity and nothing else
I've been trying to work EXT2 on the /boot partition and BTRFS on the
/ and /home partitions.
Suggestions? Glaring errors or omissions?
