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 ...

Fast Googling suggests: Windows: chkdisk -f driveletter Linux: sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdb2

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 ...

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 ...

What you are seeing is a little misleading, because most of those lines aren't real partitions. The line with filesystem udev is a virtual filesystem that does not exist on disk, and just represents some data in memory. Lines with filesystem tmpfs are virtual filesystems that exist only in memory, or swapped to the existing swap partition. They are not ...

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 ...

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 ...

Firstly, you can not work with mounted partitions. Since you are trying to modify the partition on which Ubuntu is installed, you can't do this from your installed OS as you cant unmount the partition. So what you have to do is: Create a live USB/CD and mood into Ubuntu Live In Gparted you start from the live environment, unmount the partition. If the ...

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 will try to answer your question. Go to www.ubuntu.com and download the distribution of your choice. Save it to your computer. Now, Burn this download to a DVD. Put the DVD in to cd/dvd slot and restart your computer. You have just created a live dvd. I think what is happening is you cannot partition when you are using the operating system. A live dvd ...

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 ...

Since i cannot comment i will do it like this, Take a look at this: I can't get grub menu to show up during boot

The main errors from your boot repair are: Invalid MBR Signature found. ERROR: asr: reading /dev/sda[Input/output error] So it looks like your SSD is broken. HDDs die a horrible death like cancer: slowly they get worse and worse, until they finally die whereas SSDs die a quick and painful death like a heart attack: they just die suddenly. You have just ...

I am not really sure what you mean by "just bootup a portable linux drive". If what you want is: hard-copy your sda2 into a usb and then eventually boot from it, it is probably possible. What you can surely do is: dd your sda2 to a key (be careful with the dd command and see here) If you want to restore: dd it back to an appropriate sized partition Boot ...

You can back up your personal files to an external disk with normal file-copying commands (cp in a Terminal or drag-and-drop with whatever file manager you like). That's normally adequate, unless you do heavy customization of system-wide settings (in /etc). In a worst-case scenario, you'd re-install Ubuntu and then copy your personal files back. Clonezilla ...
