I went through this recently. I ran a Lenovo laptop with Windows 10. I set it up to dual boot Windows 10 with Ubuntu 15.04. (It seems that it will be more difficult if you try to install an earlier distribution, see here for a tutorial.) If you're using Windows, you can hold 'Shift' when you click restart on the start menu to access the recovery options. ...

You probably need to disable Secure Boot. On most new machine, the UEFI BIOS will not boot from OS's other than what it came with or similar.

If you take a look through /etc/init folder, the command responsible for bringing up TTY is getty. For each TTY there is a *.conf file in /etc/init , so if you want colorized prompt on every TTY, you will have to edit every single one of those files. Now, the file responsible for the contents of that appear on the screen before logging in is /etc/issue, ...

I really do appreciate your answer, but it did not work in my case. But, I did try another separate usb. Used Unetbootin to make Ubuntu 14.04.3LTS Live USB. Booted with live USB. Once booted I used gparted to delete and format all partitions. I formatted my msata to a ext3 partition instead of ext4. Mounted the msata as / and I formatted my hdd as /home as ...

Had the same problem and tried this. When computer comes on, go to the option which usually works for me it was the first on the grub menu(Ubuntu 14.04) and press 'e'. This takes you to a shell script, use the up, down, left and right keys to navigate. Remove the line beginning with the if statement right up to the fi (the end of the if statement). To ...

I did something similar, but without LVM and encryption. You may perhaps still find something from the instructions here, especially if your system boots via EFI.

This is the longest post I've ever made on a StackExchange site, but this process requires a lot of explanation and attention to detail. It's also somewhat specific to the hardware in question, which requires more explanation. After a lot of headache, two accidental hard drive reformattings, and lots of frustration with HP's buggy firmware implementation, ...

This means that upower is hanging. There are multiple reports about but apparently no solution yet. It seems this is related to failure in reporting the battery status. This related question has more information about it. It suggests a workaround which will probably not work in your situation.

You have already given the answer from the beginning. Does the following creates another partition in Linux 300 GB NTFS type - FAT32 and then try to reinstall Windows, I believe we will have no problem.

Você já deu a resposta desde o início. Faz o seguinte cria outra partição no Linux de 300 GB do tipo NTFS - FAT32 e então tenta novamente instalar o Windows, acredito que não terá problema nenhum.

Few days ago I tried to install Windows 10 using USB stick, but couldn't because Ubuntu didn't boot it. So, that's a misconception here. Ubuntu won't boot from your USB stick. That has to happen before you boot Ubuntu or any other operating system. First off, not all computers can boot from USB, they need to be sufficiently new to support this (the ...

Find your current running kernel with: uname -r Then delete any vmlinuz/initrd kernel & image files from boot provided they are not the running kernel. I suggest you create a copy of the running kernel somewhere first just in case you make a mistake. You can remove old kernels several ways. Just deleting them (not recommended). Use a tool: How do ...

Okay, finally got it to work this morning. This time I installed both to the SSD again, making extra sure to direct Ubuntu to the Windows EFI partition during installation. The only two things I really did differently this time was formatting the HDD in GPT and running chkdsk three times on both the SSD and HDD, so thank you very much to oldfred for those ...

I did this recently with a SSD in a USB 3.0 housing and it worked very well on a USB 3.0 port of a Lenovo S1 Yoga. I tested it with a USB 3.0 64GB key and it was not that smooth. Running it from USB 2.0 is too slow to work with. I also tested it with Win 8.1 and Office - no problem like an internal HDD. One thing: I could not install an anti virus scanner ...

I might need some more info, but here is what I know on how to fix this: During the boot logo, press ctrl + alt + f1 and login with your user name (UNIX user name, not the greeter user name) and run sudo apt-get purge <insert driver package name here>. This should clear the drivers and fix the computer.

It is unlikely that you system is usable after removing the /lib directory, since this contains the runtime linker (e.g., /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.21.so). Without this file you will not be able to run any dynamically linked binaries (which, in general, means everything). Any attempt to restore these directories is probably going to be complex and error ...

Try to check to boot from legacy mode and select boot from USB. Upon this selection your laptop should restart and quickly plugin your bootable USB. I have also encountered the same issue before. Playing around on bios startup fixed it. Hope this works.

From LFS guide: LFS is usually installed on a dedicated partition. The recommended approach to building an LFS system is to use an available empty partition or, if you have enough unpartitioned space, to create one So after you have made partitions using tools such as GParted or fdisk, you'll have to create filesystem on the that partition ...

The White Folder with a question mark means that your MAC is missing a important boot folder from you OS. If holding alt does not provide a solution: You can try to reinstall MAC osx my holding Command + R at start up and letting go when you hear the boot chime. It will boot into internet recovery.

1- Why: Upstart's model for starting processes is greedy event-based, all available jobs whose startup events happen are started as early as possible. During boot, upstart synthesizes some initial events like startup or rcS as the tree root, the early services start on those, and later services start when the former are running. Systemd's model for ...

Well, I'd recommend installing Ubuntu MATE (the supported remake of GNOME for modern versions of Ubuntu), but aside from that you should be fine. GRUB should recognize Windows automatically. Just make sure, if you can, to boot into the Ubuntu installer in EFI mode. You'll also want to set the SSD that Ubuntu is on to be before the Windows drive.

Okay, after some more experimenting, it seems to be some kind of hardware issue. When I deactivate the Turbo Core Feature in the BIOS (increased CPU frequency from 3.7 to 4 Ghz) then the System is starting fine. If I then install the fglrx-drivers (which are also meddling with the frequency, I think) I can boot into xubuntu, but the system crashes after a ...

It seems the installer has overwritten your bootloader. Boot from the Windows 8 installer, and the first window will contain a "Repair your computer" label.

How can I paste the selected text from gui and toggle to cli mode and then paste it there (especially in vim)? If your goal is to go to directly from GUI to TTY and paste, that's impossible. You have to have something in the middle, something in common between tty and gui. Terminal multiplexers such as screen, tmux, and byobu allow creating shared ...

The problem is caused by the fact that a part of the GRUB boot loader remains installed on the computer, and is being launched by default. Unfortunately, the way Ubuntu sets up GRUB causes it to rely on files located on the Ubuntu partition, and since you've deleted that partition, those files effectively no longer exist. There are several possible ...

To my surprise it is actually possible. First some setup: Install xclip. Switch to the virtual terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1. Run alias pc='$(xclip -display :0 -out)'.
