You can have the same host name in each OS in a multi-boot system. However, if you are connecting to the network, your DHCP server may still have an active lease for that name, and Ubuntu tries to obtain a DHCP lease using the name you enter. If an active lease already exists, you may see the error you are getting. You can open your router or DHCP server's ...

When you format a disk, data is removed from that disk. What did you expect? Restoring a backup would be the best method. Some people have had results using the datarecovery help using testdisk, but that really depends on what you did to the disk after the installation. The more you use that system, the less likely it is to be able to recover what was ...

Just to add something for clarification, usually when you "format a disk" the quick way, the data itself is not erased/destroyed - rather, the partition table where the map to your data was, is. The more you use your disk after the partition table is erased, the more you are overwriting the previous data, and making it harder to recover. As was pointed out ...

You can and should use one EFI partition for all OSes installed. The only concern is if you have many OSes that there is enough space on it. But in most cases this is not an issue since efi files are small.

You do not have to create a new ESP (EFI system partition). In fact, you must leave the ESP alone as explained in the UEFI Ubuntu help page Make sure you install Ubuntu in EFI mode so you will be able to boot both Ubuntu and Windows from GRUB.

You can change the order of operating systems in GRUB using GRUB customizer. Install it using the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install grub-customizer Open it up and you can easily reorder operating systems under "List Configuration".

Well, This is a very Interesting question, and the answer is yes. You can run a Windows Machine under Linux/KVM and use IOMMU GPU Pass-through to do a PCI Passthrough on your Graphics Card. This will however require an IOMMU compatible motherboard. This process also requires you to make some changes to your bios. You must use Virtio Drivers for your Windows ...
