Considering that you are running Windows 10 and the last version of Wubi said that it does not support anything higher than 7, I would say that it could be dangerous to install Ubuntu this way. But hey, as long as you back everything up on your Windows partition and are willing to reinstall it all from scratch, I'd say give it a try! Sometimes the best way ...

This is done by booting into text mode: make a backup by running the command below: sudo cp -n /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.orig If for some reason you want to revert to original settings, just run command below in terminal: sudo mv /etc/default/grub.orig /etc/default/grub && sudo update-grub To get started, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open ...

Simple: There is none ;-) Dual-Booting just means that you will on bootup (after powerbutton is prssed and BIOS showed POST messages) be NOT greeted by thw Operating System as you have two installed. Instead you will be given the option to chose which one to start (Actually you can even dual-boot without that chosing-screen but let's ignore that for a ...

If you don't mind to reinstall, I propose to reinstall instead of dealing with Gparted and all those partitions. Boot into Ubuntu Installation media. This can be either CD or USB stick. Start the installation. Proceed to Step 4 and choose "Something else": You will see your disk as /dev/sda Click "New Partition Table..." You will see that you have free ...

Just add them at the end of the file like that # List of modules that you want to include in your initramfs. # They will be loaded at boot time in the order below. # # Syntax: module_name [args ...] # # You must run update-initramfs(8) to effect this change. # # Examples: # # raid1 # sd_mod usbcore uhci_hcd ehci_hcd usbhid But I not think it is related ...

Imho it's a feature, I always use it since it's faster (I don't have to move my fingers from the arrow keys to return). Though it's strange that it isn't mentioned in the manual, they only write about return...

I did the update yesterday on 14.04, and 15.04, and it went OK. What I think it does, it removes an older version, and installs a newer one. Both systems have been rebooted, and they both work fine.

First, if you intend to dual-boot with an already-installed Windows system, go back into your firmware and disable the BIOS/CSM/legacy option that you enabled. Such a configuration creates the opportunity for problems related to the boot mode. If you intend to single-boot Ubuntu, then the boot mode isn't so important. If you can't get the Ubuntu installer to ...

In principle (without actually seeing your partition layout) you should be able to simply extend the Ubuntu partition using the unallocated space. This process ought to be perfectly safe. However, in real life, nothing is guaranteed. Why not use disk imaging software (e.g. Macrium Reflect Free Edition for Windows, Clonezilla for Linux) to make a backup of ...

Have you tried using the dd command? It's a low level disk command, which means it can be very dangerous if you type incorrectly, so proceed with caution! You will need an Ubuntu live CD or USB to boot from, or an Ubuntu installation on another disk, and you need to know the device name for your SSD, eg /dev/sda. It's really important that you get the ...

First of all you need to boot from Ubuntu LiveCD to be able to move Ubuntu partitions. You see that now they are locked with "key" sign. After that you will be able to move all partitions. But do not mount them in Nautilus, otherwise they will be locked again. But you can unmount partitions using right-click in Gparted. But you may have trouble with ...

GRUB 2 binaries include hard-coded references to their configuration files. I haven't really been keeping track of all the gory details, but as I understand it, there are two EFI GRUB 2 binaries for Ubuntu on AMD64/x86-64 systems: grub2-efi-amd64 -- This is the version of GRUB 2 that's used on computers that do not use Secure Boot. As I understand it, the ...

You likely have the drive mounted in /etc/fstab using /dev/sdX and the identifying letter got changed. Drives get assigned a letter by the order they are found. Make a live USB stick and fix your /etc/fstab. lsblk will show the drives. Also, its a good habit to mount drives in /etc/fstab using an UUID rather than /dev/sdX. You can find out the UUIDs with ...

Answered by Terrance in comments of original poster. When installing Ubuntu along side of Windows or vice versa a bootloader, mainly Grub is installed. If after running updates you can no longer see your other operating systems try the following: You will want to run the following command: sudo update-grub This command will basically update the grub ...

First, you must determine your boot modes: BIOS or EFI. Note the plural modes; it's possible to install Windows in one mode and Ubuntu in the other. You can learn each OSes' boot mode from Ubuntu: Check for a directory called /sys/firmware/efi. If it's present, Ubuntu is booted in EFI mode; if it's absent, Ubuntu is booted in BIOS mode. Type sudo parted ...

It sounds like you're using dm-crypt/cryptsetup/LUKS on your whole partition, and also eCryptFS for your old home folder. Since you can already decrypt the whole partition ok, you just need to decrypt your home folder now. Easiest is probably using the ecryptfs-recover-private script, just run it (optionally telling it where your encrypted private directory ...

One possible cause may be incorrect partition alignment. Proper partition alignment is essential for optimal performance and longevity. This is due to the block nature of every I/O operation on the hardware level as well as file system level. The key to alignment is partitioning to (at least) the given block size, which depends on the used ...
