It's possible that your EFI bootloader info for Windows was stored in Ubuntu's /boot partition. If that's the case, you need to somehow get Windows (boot from DVD?) to re-create those Windows system files. I did this once, about a year ago, and couldn't tell you how I did it Maybe I just backed-up everything and re-installed. It took a long time to figure ...

Your processor is affected by the c-state bug which causes total freezes when the CPU tries to enter an unsupported sleep state. It's a problem for many Bay Trail devices especially with newer (4.*) kernels. There is a simple workaround for this until it gets properly fixed upstream.

I could only see the display and switch between a couple of applications after several attempts. But the linux guest became completely unresponsive. Windows host did not ...

The error: "kernel: intel_soc_dts_thermal: request_threaded_irq ret -22" comes from the Intel SoC DTS Thermal driver. It requests a threaded irq handler and for some reason one of the parameters to the kernel function request_threaded_irq() are invalid and it returns error -22 EINVAL, "Invalid parameter".

I have a very similar Toshiba system. I have the L15W-B1220, and I have the same hard freeze issue as you, and I have installed all the different flavors of Ubuntu from 14.04lts, 14.10, 15.04, 15.10, and 16.04, including all the sub flavors, Mate, Gnome, Kubuntu, etc, all of them lock up. My belief is it's a kernel issue mostly. Installing the package ...

I was facing similar problem on my Ubuntu 16.04. It used to freeze randomly a lot and I had to perform a forced shutdown each time. Upgrading the kernel to 4.7-rc3 did not work for me!

Ubuntu 16.04 had a lot of problem with external GPU (nVidia or ATI) and with Intel Power States of 6th generation Intel processors. I have your same problem and installing kernel Linux 4.6 (instead of 4.4) I have solved my problem. Enter these commands on your terminal (for 64bit PCs): cd /tmp/ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.6-...
