(short version of the story) I'm using Kubuntu in BIOS Legacy State as this was the only way I could see USB option in Boot Menu (F12). And it was the only way I could install Kubuntu from USB, from boot. I "burned" USB using OEM Windows 10 and told Kubuntu to take entire disk (effectively wiping out all bloatware). If I enable BIOS UEFI mode, I see "No Bootable Device" icon because Linux and UEFI don't like one another(?), and already mentioned, list of bootable devices disappear (In Legacy Mode, there are 5 positions, HDD, USB, network etc., in …

Every 2 hours my server will power down. I just recently installed the 2003 OS. I only used the first disc for the installation. There are no scheduled tasks and the power management settings are fine. Its not a heat issue because it will reboot immediately afterward. I would think this is a software issue, however I am not sure where to start.:(

I am building a new OS as a learning experience, and after trudging through intel architecture manuals and osdever tutorials I still have no idea how to write a keyboard device driver- using BIOS calls and interrupts is outdated and I have no idea how to directly interface the keyboard or know when someone has typed something-how do I begin writing a device driver and where can I go to get help on it?
