If you're trying to install Windows on the same drive you have already installed Ubuntu, keep in mind that you probably wont be able to dual-boot without making some changes to grub (or whatever boot manager you are using to boot Ubuntu). To avoid that I recommend installing first Windows and the Ubuntu (newer versiones detected the installed OSs and provide ...

I was getting the same exact "errno 5" error when trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop. What fixed it for me was burning the iso to a DVD at a very slow rate. For example, I used the "Free ISO Burner" software and used a burn rate of 2x instead of max. Perhaps you can try this method instead of a USB stick? Also, before burning the DVD, do make sure ...

I got this problem solved after a few experiments. Disconnect your internet and then start wubi.exe and it will use the iso file in the same directory. It may be a good idea to reconnect internet when your computer restarts for proper installation of ubuntu. Thanks everybody.

The idea of answering myself isn't appealing, but I'm writing this for the sake of others who viewed this question hoping they'd get an answer. After googling, I found some interesting pages discussing the topic ..

I'm afraid not. An disk image (iso) contains more than just an executable. The best to do is to make an live usb stick (or cd) and install it while vista is shut down. To create a live usb stick, you can follow this guide to create an live ubuntu USB or just burn the disk image in an CD/DVD. Then proceed with the installation of ubuntu.

No, exe and iso are two different files. A exe is a windows executable, while iso is an image of a disk. If you want to replace vista with ubuntu, plug the dvd (usb) in and at boot press a key, typically it says for a second on the screen which key to press to go into the boot menu. From there you choose the usb or dvd and voila, Ubuntu boots up. Then just ...

This probably is a laptop that came with Windows 8. Did you enable Launch CSM and Launch PXE OpROM ? And, if you have the option in the BIOS, change booting mode from UEFI to Legacy.

I'm assuming you already checked the BIOS settings for boot order etc. since you mention Ubuntu does boot from USB. Also, make sure secure boot is disabled in the BIOS. In some instances, you have to set a BIOS admin/supervisor password before you are allowed to change the setting. Other Possible issues could be the thumb drive, the utility you are using to ...

What you've done is somewhat correct, but you must login as a root user. sudo su - Create a mount point: mkdir -p /mnt/<mount_name> The use mount command as follows to mount ISO file .iso: mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/<mount_name> Change directory to list files stored inside an ISO image: cd /mnt/<mount_name> ls -l

No its not a silly question. :) Ubuntu used to have a windows installer (for XP and win7) called Wubi (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Warning). With it you could install Ubuntu without the need to partition you hard disk (its main benefit). But it has been dropped starting version 13.04 and as far as I know is not being maintained. You can still dual ...

I'm able to browse, add and delete files in an ISO file without unpacking/repacking it by simply opening it with the Archive Manager (Ubuntu 14.04). Hopefully you can do the same using Kubuntu.

Just go to http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ and download the 14.04.1 version applicable to you. Its the Latest version of Trusty Tahr with all the bugs fixed and patched till this July.

Perfect timing for question, official ISO had been updated a week ago. Or there is an official network installer ISO, that downloads all packages from net during installation. That said, the only thing that can help you with new version is kernel.

Yes. The AMD64 architecture was developed by AMD as an extension to the Intel x86 architecture. It is implemented by AMD and Intel in consumer-grade 64-bit CPUs. AMD64 is alternately called x86-64 (which makes its Intel heritage more apparent).

If mounting inside your file explorer, try mounting it this way: mkdir /mnt/iso_folder mount -o loop image.iso /mnt/iso_folder Then you should be able to access the files that are located on the disk.

It's just a matter of media. If the DVD ISO you have to write onto the media is bigger than 4.7 GB, you can use double-layer DVD if your writer is able to support this kind of DVD. Then you can put almost the double of 4.7 GB on a single double-layer DVD. Of course, if the ISO size exceeds the size limit of a double-layer DVD, you cannot do anything more ...

There are two links to download CentOS 7 (the latest version) from the download site at centos.org. If you choose the first link by clicking the button that says DVD ISO you be asked to select a mirror and then download a 3.9GB CentOS ISO file that will fit nicely on a DVD. Clicking the other download button will download a bigger ISO that has a lot of ...

OK, after pretty much 2 nights of trying I finally got round it. Following the instructions given by Avinash Raj in the following post, I've downloaded WinUSB and I created the bootable USB with no fuss. How can I create a Windows bootable USB stick with Ubuntu? The only note: while you run the application, make sure to select the "show all drive" option ...

Using dd on devices requires root permissions. Prepend your command with sudo, like so: sudo dd if=/home/GIGI/Windows/Windows.iso of=/dev/sdb1 ibs=4b obs=1b conv=notrunc,noerror

You can't burn an arbitrary ISO image to USB stick. Technically, you can, but it will not boot. For image to boot, it must have special USB-ish header, in which case it is called a "hybrid" image. Is you image hybrid? If yes, just use dd command to copy it directly to your USB device, like: dd if=EvilOS.iso of=/dev/sdh Be very careful with what you put ...

I have this issue also. I wake my computer up, unlock it, and it hangs. I don't know how to fix it, I just reboot the computer. I know that if you don't require a password after sleep, it wakes just fine.

While it is technically possible, I say this only in case someone challenges yot to bet 100$ on it. It is awkward, tedious and buggy process. Create a bootable stick or better, find that empty DVD. For someone curious, the steps are: create a new partition on the drive. use VirtualBox to create a virtual machine with real partition as disk and DVD ISO. ...

No, OSFMount will not work, because it is only software based. That means, once you shutdown Windows, the ISO will be unmounted automatically.

Read the license and click I Agree From the dropdown list, ...

If you just wish to upgrade from your current install, just go to: Software Center > Edit menu > Sources And in the Updates tab, the last option (Notify me for new ubuntu releases) change it to: Only show LTS releases. That was as @muru said you will see the upgrade aviable (14.04.1 was suposed to be released on july 24 as iso).

Without root access you'll have to grab the entire file, move it to a box where you have root access, and then mount the iso to pull just a single file out of it.

You are mixing things up: an ISO is a data dump (often from a dvd/cd/bd). You mount ISO's as you would mount a hard disk. And when mounted you can "cd" into the directories and copy files from it. If you are unsure about command line install software that can mount ISOs. Examples: furius, gmount-iso, acetoneiso, gisomount. All are available in Ubuntu ...
