• After having a successful installation of Debian Buster, Lenovo compute

    From Adrian D'Costa@21:1/5 to All on Fri Dec 20 19:30:02 2019
    I am trying to install Debian 10.2 XFCE DVD with non-free firmware.

    It says on the monitor everything has completed successfully. Now remove
    the removable media from which is the USB stick and boot into your new
    system.

    But the computer doesn't boot into newly installed Debian Buster.

    I have installed Grub in the MBR (Master Boot Record of Seagate's USB
    expansion drive).

    The Lenovo laptop is setup with the setup UEFI as UEFI and BIOS both, with
    BIOS first.

    Can anybody kindly tell me what I am doing wrong? Can anybody kindly point
    out where am I making the mistake?

    Shouldn't the computer load the MBR's Grub as I have pointed the boot order (first by pressing continuously F2 and changing Boot Priority and then Boot Option by pressing F12) to the Seagate USB expansion drive? Let me know if
    you need any information or setting info about installed Debian Buster's configuration.

    Thank you.

    P.S. For your information I previously installed Debian Squeezy's GRUB on
    to the same Seagate's MBR. But now I deleted all the partitions and used
    the guided automatic partitioning scheme that came with Buster and have a
    fresh install. I have turned off Secure Boot.

    I have no /var/log/messages or dmesg | tail because the laptop won't boot
    into Debian Buster at all.

    I managed to use Debian Xfce 10.2 Live Non-Free Firmwares USB Stick. More information is given below:

    I have solved the problem. One of my hardrive was buggy. I replaced it. And everything is fine now.

    Thank you all.
