Forgive me if I'm wrong, but if /dev/sda1 is already mounted at /boot, wouldnt you get a redundant /boot in your path when you're also specifying it in the $isofile variable? I think GRUB is looking for the image in /boot/boot/, so maybe try changing to: set isofile="ubuntu-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso"

I don't know if you're aware of this, but the 14.04 is the newest LTS (Long-Term Support) version that's recommended for most users. Non-LTS versions are only supported for 9 months. The latest LTS image, Lubuntu 14.04LTS, fits on a 700MB CD. It is unfortunate that the Lubuntu 14.10 desktop image is 705MB. I'm not sure, but you might be able to use ...

It's ridiculous that it is this complicated. Wubi should be able to point to an ISO. And why no link to the executable directly on the downloads page?

You can copy all the ISO contents to the flash drive and make it bootable. So, first of all, install GParted from software center or from terminal: sudo apt-get install gparted Then, open it from dash or terminal: gksudo gparted After that, choose the flash drive from the menu in top right corner. There should be one partition. If you haven't ...

If you weren't sure, then how can you say that the dd method worked? Also, that ain't the way. You have to use Rufus to make the USB drive bootable;not that I discourage the dd practices, since it is Windows we are talking about, I believe it is best to use Rufus to handle this for you. If you have a Windows installation already, then boot into it and ...

You found too much information because this is a complex issue. You need to know a lot and read a lot about networking to accomplish this, but start with the official Ubuntu documentation on: A disk-less workstation and then move on to: PXE Boot Server Installation and finally (if needed) PXE boot multiple distributions Just to re-iterate: you ...

Actually, there is a very simple answer to this question. I have just created Windows 7 ISO file with no problems. Didn't really liked the Brasero method because it keep throwing pop-up windows. It had some compatibility issues with file names and ISO standard. I believe this method is compatible with Mac OS ISO's as well. This answer is provided by using ...

My way on Fedora 21: On Fedora, ensure the nautilus and gnome-disk-utility packages are installed. Download Ubuntu image. Right-click on the Ubuntu image, and select Open With -> Disk Image Writer. Select your USB stick as the Destination, and click Start Restoring... Note: your data on USB stick will lost, so, back up your USB stick data.

Both MakeMKV and ByteCopy work on Windows. I don't have a review on both but both are easy to use, you may google for the instructions. Handbrake is mainly designed for converting digital media files, it will not convert protected discs though. So Handbrake may not work well if your ISI's are still under commercial protection.

It seems it may be broken. You may mount it using this commands on terminal: sudo mkdir -p /mnt/disk sudo mount -o loop DISKNAME.iso /mnt/disk This way it should be mounted to /mnt/disk It always worked to me, if not, the image should be damaged

Sounds as if the iso are corrupt. Otherwise you can loop mount them. sudo -i mount -o loop your.iso /mnt The files are then available under /mnt. Post any error messages you get. If you want a graphical interface use gisomount See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountIso for additional information.

A Two Partition Solution You may be able to get by with 2 (or 3 if you want a Swap) partitions, one for the Full Ubuntu and another for data storage and exchange. Full Ubuntu will install GRUB by default. Modify GRUB to add extra entries that point directly to iso files stored in the first partition along with Ubuntu. See How to boot live iso images? for ...

It's normal. Winusb adds some data to iso before writing it to USB . Don't worry. You should be able to install windows from USB device written by winusb.

Note that ddrescue makes an encrypted image. If you originally had a non-encrypted image (say from k3b) and you tried to play this in vlc, then the dvd keys for the iso file in your $USER/.dvdcss are for a non-encrypted DVD. If you later use ddrescue to rip a new image, to play it you must remove the old keys for that image in $USER/.dvdcss and then try ...
