How did you install your new Ubuntu, did you create a new partition and
install it there?

What do you mean other non-performinig Ubuntu versions? Do you mean they
show up in the bootloader menu but don't work?

Maybe send some more details along with output of mounted file systems:

df -h

Along with your partition table:

parted /dev/sda p

Who knows if anyone's interested, maybe just send it. I mean, if you had
a problem and now you know how to fix the problem that's probably a good
thing to let others know about. Maybe someone searching later will find
your fix.
