I just upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7, and the update manager did not bother on touching grub or other partitions. It just upgraded its own partition. I used the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to upgrade. (I was impatient)

There are some peculiarities about your installation: Your computer has two Windows Recovery Environment partitions, /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5. My guess is one is from your previous Windows installation and the other is for the new installation, but I can't be positive of that. I doubt if this duplication is causing you any problems per se; I mention it ...

From the output of your boot-repair command, it looks like you have an UEFI system… However, Ubuntu is installed in non-UEFI mode, and Windows is installed in UEFI mode so only one of the two is going to work at a time without changing the boot parameters… The best you can do is: re-install Windows 10 in non-UEFI mode or reinstall Ubuntu in UEFI mode ...

Installing windows (or upgrading it) alongside linux can be problematic. Try this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair I used it to fix a problem after I installed the Windows 10 tech preview, and it worked. Basically, what it does is reinstall grub to work with all currently installed operating systems. Make sure to tell it to install grub to ...

It looks like your Windows system was hibernated and not actually shut down. That causes issues for Linux's ntfs3g driver. So, you need to boot back into Windows and shut it down cleanly. In their infinite wisdom, the Microsoft developers decided to make it hard for users to shut down their machines. According to this site, you need to: Mouse over ...

Yes, it can be done with gparted program. When you install Ubuntu, it divides hard drive into chunks or partitions. So you would need to boot from USB or CD and delete Windows partition. (why usb because it dangerous to operate on a running disk). On Ubuntu partition you will have a thing called grub bootloader. That this is what actually helps you choose ...

As the D630 is an older model I don't believe UEFI has anything to do with it. Double check system requirements here I would avoid unetbootin as in my experience success is rare. I've had excellent results using dd to duplicate the iso to a USB flash drive. The process to do so can be found in here. Basically you just connect the flash drive you wish to ...

You can still get antivirus programs for WXP Routers/firewalls provide absolutely no protections against viruses, only hackers. Virtualbox has nothing to do with security when concerning the Host OS Virtualbox has nothing to do with VPN connections either (Unless manually set by the user) Ubuntu can be installed on GPT or MBR partition schemes, as long as ...

The EndEntire error: premature end of file and EndEntire error: cannot load image messages might indicate a problem that needs to be fixed from the Windows side -- namely, damage to the Windows boot loader. (OTOH, if you have a backup of your EFI System Partition, or ESP, from before the error occurred, you may be able to recover by restoring that backup. ...

You can create partitions on your HDD without erasing any data if there is enough space. You can boot from Ubuntu LiveUSB, start gparted and do it there. You will not need to change boot order in bios. You can install grub on SSD or HDD, that will provide boot menu, where you will be able to choose which OS to start. If you install grub on HDD, then when ...

You can not create more that 4 primary partitions in MBR. I suggest temporarily removing /sda3 swap partition. Move left side of /sda4 right. Remove /sda3. Create an extended partition in unallocated space. Create two partitions inside the extended. Format one as swap, the other as ext2 for /boot. Update /etc/fstab with new UUIDs and mount points for swap ...

I'm afraid you've accidentally deleted Windows from your computer. In your Boot Repair output, lines 57-61 show your partitions, which include an EFI System Partition (ESP) to hold your boot loaders (/dev/sda3), a 14GiB root (/) partition (/dev/sda1), a /home partition (/dev/sda4), and a swap partition (/dev/sda2). There are no Windows partitions among that ...

My computer came with Windows 8 pre-installed so I shrunk the Windows partition to make room for Ubuntu. That it how it works for the last year. After the second reboot in Windows 10 upgrade the computer did not boot any more. The grub only displayed a grub rescue command prompt. I found out later that the problem occurred because windows somehow changed the ...

You need to change your boot priority so grub takes president over the Windows bootloader. In your UEFI go to Boot and look for something similar to Boot Option Priorities and set Boot Option #1 to ubuntu (P#: drive name). This should set grub as your default boot device. It is also worth noting that devices such as ubuntu (size) and Windows Boot Manager (P# ...
