Best to start a new thread in the Installing Linux Lite section for your new requirement.

Provide information about how your disk is currently set up and how it boots currently.
If I understand correctly you have a dual boot Windows and LL7 set up.
If so, boot the LL7 installation and run these commands.
Code: [Select]
lsblk
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -lEnter your password if asked.

Post the results in your new thread along with the information suggested above and describe explicitly what you want to do.

For the updates - start a new thread in the updates section.  Make sure to post the actual log messages.

This thread can remain open as long as you are prepared to keep going on it.  In practice, very few threads get closed.
Maybe someone else will be able to offer suggestions.

There will not be a need for a new thread as i seem to have solved the problem, i downloaded the older version of LL starting with LL 6.6.
I created the bootable using 6.6 and booted in live system, the system selected analog audio by default again but then i played a media file on vlc and selected hdmi from vlc sound device and lobehold, the sound was there. now i need to know how i can install LL 6.6 over my linux partition without destroying windows. any help would be much appriciated.

on an unrelated note, the software updater is prompting that 4 important updates are avilable but when i click on it it stops in the middle with message "software update has been canceled"
Updates aren't designed to work when booted from Live media.

system is not even trying to produce sound through HDMI. what could cause this?
Don't know - sorry.
If I have an active audio application on the Playback tab set at 0dB and an active Port on the Output Device tab also set at 0dB, the levels match and sound is produced.
Any if either the Playback or Output tabs level settings are changed, the system behaves exactly as expected.

I did not mean from live usb, the update in general are getting terminated in the middle. there are 4 updates that do not get installed something called noble and ppa.
As for the sound problem, i am going to download older versions of LL and install them on a old laptop HDD i have for rainy days like these.
please do not close this thread as i will post update.

This is very odd.  I obviously don't have the same hardware, but have a system with an HDMI port that had never been connected.
Cabled the computer to the HDMI port on a TV and was able to get sound and display working on the TV as expected with just a few clicks.

when i selected HDMI the bar remains totaly dead. system is not even trying to produce sound through HDMI.
Can you list what you do to select HDMI ?

I just go to audio mixer and select hdmi from there, also in vlc media player audio device select hdmi output or headphone if they are plugged in. it remains selected in subsequent restarts.  on an unrelated note, the software updater is prompting that 4 important updates are avilable but when i click on it it stops in the middle with message "software update has been canceled"

Did it work as expected on first installation before any modifications ?
Does it work as expected if you boot from a Live Image ?

After booting in live usb i checked and no sound, the system started with analog audio chosen as default again (front connecters are not even plugged in).
when i tried to play sound the analog bar moves as if the sound is being played but when i selected HDMI the bar remains totaly dead. system is not even trying to produce sound through HDMI. what could cause this?

I am unable to edit my post so reposting this comment. My monitor has 2 HDMI and one Display port, i noticed in volume control that My HDMI connection is shown as HDMI/Display Port (connected). My motherboard does not have a DP and i am only using HDMI Cable.

Difficult to provide specific help without having similar hardware.

Neither of the two audio devices listed are obviously HDMI

Can you show us the output of these two commands
Code: [Select]
inxi -aA
Code: [Select]
journalctl -b | grep -i hdmiplease ?


If you look in Volume Control do things look right ?

Click 'Menu' and begin typing 'Volume Control' into the search box
When you see 'Volume Control in the list, click on it.
In the window that opens select the 'Output Devices' tab
Ensure 'Show' at the bottom is set to 'All Output Devices'

If your HDMI audio is recognised, I think there will be an entry for Built-in Audio Digital Stereo showing the Port as 'HDMI plugged in'.

If you see that, ensure the volume slider for it is near 100% and ensure it is set as fallback (the tick on the right).
Having done that, set an audio file to play, you should see the level meter responding if the system is trying to output over the HDMI.

Sure thing, here is the output..

1- inxi -aA
Audio:
  Device-1: Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio
    driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus-ID: 00:03.0 chip-ID: 8086:0c0c
    class-ID: 0403
  Device-2: Intel 8 Series/C220 Series High Definition Audio
    driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus-ID: 00:1b.0 chip-ID: 8086:8c20
    class-ID: 0403
  API: ALSA v: k6.8.0-36-generic status: kernel-api
    tools: alsactl,alsamixer,amixer
  Server-1: PulseAudio v: 16.1 status: active tools: pacat,pactl,pavucontrol
 
2- journalctl -b | grep -i hdmi
Jul 09 11:16:43 khu-desktop kernel: input: HDA Intel HDMI HDMI/DP,pcm=3 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/sound/card1/input25

Jul 09 11:16:43 khu-desktop kernel: input: HDA Intel HDMI HDMI/DP,pcm=8 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/sound/card1/input27
Jul 09 11:16:46 khu-desktop alsactl[954]: Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Intel Haswell HDMI" "HDA:80862807,80860101,00100000" "0x8086" "0x0c0c"

My Volume Control shows these things...
Output Devices-
1- Built in Audio Analog Stereo
2- FFt Based Equalizer on Built-in Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
3- Built in Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
4- Soundcore Life Q20
Output is selected to all output devices and streams is selected to all as well


As for volume control i have fft based equalizer installed to show if it plays or not and in HDMI the bar does not move.
selecting Built in Analog audio shows the equalizer moving as if the sound is playing (no sound is produced).
funny thing is that i have the headphone plugged in and selecting them even in VLC player starts producing sound (doesn't even matter what the audio control is set on).
One thing to note that i have not plugged in the front audio connecter as my headphone jacks are old and useless, but that should not be a problem as i have HDMI connected directly from motherboard to monitor.
