Since March, I've been trying to figure out what keeps causing my home drive to get flagged as read-only after a cold boot.
I tried a new drive since that could be the sign of a failing drive. Things were fine until I rebooted to apply updates. When that didn't fix it, I replaced the cables running to it, but the same thing occurs. Even changing where on my motherboard it plugs in did this.
I really don't have the budget to replace the motherboard and its parts for repeat behavior. Weirdly, it is specifically the drive I use for /home, none of the other three are affected.
Elementary OS 0.4
ASUS M5A97 R2.0
WD Blue HDD
/Home mountpoint formatted as ext4
If you want a snippet of the ata4 errors I'm getting or anything else, I'll happily provide them.
