    Thanks. That's a helpful explanation.

    I just need to get my motivation back.

    I tried to start the cloning process, but just don't have the energy.

    @TheShipwright -

    Did you resolve the issue with installing Ubuntu and not being able to boot.
    It sounds like you didn't wipe the entire disk prior to installing?

    No. I've gone round in circles not really getting anywhere.

    The Lubuntu install on the original HDD was a Legacy install. The SDD was brand new. I've used gpart to wipe it a few time now.

    A couple of things I've noticed are;

    1. In bios the SDD doesn't show as an SDD - just a HD. Although on the summary info screen when loading it does show the correct make/model of SSD.
    2. When I looked at the flags in gpart after trying yet another default install as well as a "boot" flag there was an "esp" flag. However removing it didn't seem to make a difference.

    Does anyone have or know of a good guide for cloning an HDD to SSD in Ubuntu (Lubuntu 17.10)?

    They are different sizes, but the contents of the HDD are less than the SDD. Just.

    Cheers.

    It could be worse:

    Honestly though, that is better quality.

    @MicroDosed™ - how does that work now? I can't see anything in my PayPal anymore.

    Just got a response;

    Hi Hugo7,

    We are really sorry that you feel this way.

    However, we do not accept returns. We have stated in the description that the ítem may vary due to the photography and screen settings. When it comes to the photo resolution, it is in HD. If you click on the image it will zoom in. Furthermore, we would restrain from returning a pillow because of hygienic reasons.

    Did you try the product on the cushion and ironed it as well? For better results.

    Please let us know.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    In my message I preempted the

    We have stated in the description that the ítem may vary due to the photography and screen settings.

    By pointing out this is not a screen variation issue.

    Basically if you Google imaged a cushion design you liked, then uploaded it to one of those photo cushion websites, it looks like that.

    Oh well of to PayPal dispute we go.

    It's been a while since I've had an issue as a buyer on ebay other than failed / incorrect delivery.

    Can someone suggest what I should do /my rights re the below?

    Mrs H bought a cushion cover on my eBay. It turned up and is actually a fucking awful low res printed photo of another cushion. I mean it's proper shit.

    I've messaged the seller. How long is reasonable to wait for a response, and should they pay for return postage?

    Cheers.
