None of you mention DeVeDe, which is my favorite and readily available in the repositories.

Brasero will accurately copy DVDs. You must first install 'libdvdcss2' from the VLC website. This allows Brasero to defeat the 'CSS' (Content Scramble System) which is used in commercial DVDs to prevent unauthorized copying.

It's supposed to be possible to use the dd command to create the bootable USB, though you will need a working Linux system to run it! The page you linked has links to here and here about using dd to make the bootable usb, although I couldn't see the command example. You'll need to know what the device name for the usb, and other internal disks, in the form ...

If you boot with UEFI (not BIOS or UEFI with BIOS compatibility mode (a.k.a. CSM)) all you'll need is GParted and a file manager. The ISO must be configured for UEFI boot for this to work. I've successfully done this with both Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.04, but I can't vouch for any other OS. This is what I do to create a bootable USB drive for UEFI ...

You do not need wine. Someone reverse engineered SDM and ported a repo to github. xSDM The git manual gives most details, and provides a link to his site that gives comprehensive instructions. I have successfully used it to download Windows Server 2012 R2 from my DreamSpark student account while using Trusty Tahr. Note: The large file sizes of most ...

When your Sony Vaio is ready first: 1) Open a browser to: www.ubuntu.com > Click Download > and get the latest DVD version (14.10) 2) Burn the DVD to a disk. (Or use UNETBootIn to burn it to USB Memstick). 3) Turn on the VAIO and as soon as the VAIO screen comes on press F12 (or Delete, or F2 >> the one that allows you to select Boot device 4) Select the ...

A possible reason for this error is the inability to access the ISO file. For instance, if the user can list the contents of the directory containing the ISO, but not read the file itself, Startup Disk Creator will let select the file, and then fail with "Installation failed." error. It is surprising that this case was not handled by the tool, for example ...

Just mount both images at the same time, there's no real need to unmount the first one. On a side note: the problem is probably the fact that wine itself is preventing the image to be unmounted, overriding the specific executable's default behavior which wouldn't.

Use either a DVD or a USB stick of flash drive, I don't think an SD card will work for that, even a USB has to have the ISO made into a bootable USB, not the method as setting up a VM check out this link How can I create a Windows bootable USB stick with Ubuntu?

I don't know whether Windows 8 improved over the year (or decades in Windows terms of the smallest time step to introduce basic improvement), but in Windows 7 a reliable way is to create recovery disk of Windows with Windows[^1] make a full dd image of the HDD(s)[^2], e.g. from an Ubuntu live (this allows you to do 1. in VirtualBox on Ubuntu later) ...

Test this: Uninstall all Windows applications. Run the scandisk and defrag. Download the Xubuntu iso file: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/trusty/release/xubuntu-14.04.2-desktop-i386.iso Reduce Windows partition on everything possible and leave unpartitioned space. Download and install EasyBCD for personal, non-commercial use: ...

Yes, it's possible. You didn't say if the computer where you will download runs Windows or Ubuntu. But you need to download the Ubuntu ISO on that computer, then prepare the memory card or USB stick, and finally boot the second computer using the stick or card. Download Ubuntu from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/ See this guide on how to do ...

Do you have an USB Stick? If Yes, you can download an .iso Image from Ubuntu and then you have to put the .iso File to the USB-Stick an then you can boot and install it from the USB.

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 ...
