Here is an approach how to make Winodws partitions auto mounted in Ubuntu. Run: sudo blkid You will see UUIDs of your partitions, the next is just an example: /dev/sda1: LABEL="Recovery" UUID="B23613F43613B875" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda2: LABEL="Windows" UUID="38CE9483CE943AD8" TYPE="ntfs" /dev/sda3: LABEL="Data" UUID="519CB82E5888AD0F" TYPE="ntfs" ...

Seems you didn't try Unetbootin UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already ...

Had the same problem - I tried to uncheck the entire usb (1.1 and 2.0) before starting the guest. Then XP recognized the usb When XP booted and completed USB Driver install, you have to put the usb device through by selecting it in the "devices" tab in the machine menu which can be integrated when in the C View mode or center-down when Full view.

Try making a bootable hard disk using pendrive linux. There is also other software that can do similar things. If your hard disk doesn't show up, try formatting to FAT32. Also, make sure that there is nothing else on the disk. Use this page for more help. If you do need to re-format, be careful. This can wipe everything on the disk. Good luck!

The procedure is that you first unmount any disks that may still be mounted: sudo umount /mnt/... (that is not a typo, the command is umount) Then the directory /mnt/... is empty and can be removed: sudo rmdir /mnt/... Then you can make a new mount point elsewhere: sudo mkdir /mnt/newmountpoint and mount the disk there: sudo mount -t auto ...

Make sure portable device it the first boot option. Some USB devices are detected as hard drives in BIOS so make sure the first one in the hard drive boot priority is the usb drive as well.

Apparent in the Acer Aspire series, you must first change the BIOS (press F2 during boot) to allow booting from USB, then use F12 during boot to choose the USB device. https://craftedflash.com/info/how-boot-computer-from-usb-flash-drive http://www.linlap.com/acer_aspire_v7-482pg-9884

This is an BIOS/UEFI issue. Make sure portable device it the first option, resp. your USB device is the first one in the hard drive boot priority.

It should be enough to run sudo gedit /etc/group then find vboxusers line and add to it's end Yours user name. After this reboot is suggested, but logging out or kill -9 -1 and logging in should be enough.

It is simple. Follow these steps: fdisk -l This will list out the partitions. Lets assume, your disc is "xxx" pmount xxx /media/mydisc; Your disk will be mounted at /media/mydisc directory. If you want to unmount it, umount /media/mydisc;

Minimum requirements for the size of the USB flash drive are 2GB for Ubuntu and 4GB for Kali Linux (regular). A USB 3.0 drive will be faster than a USB 2.0 drive, but still much slower and less stable than running either OS in a virtual machine application like VirtualBox if you give the guest OS 2GB RAM. If you already have access to a running instance ...

Aside from the Zeitgeist logs Rinzwind mentioned you also have to worry about two files: 1.) recently-used.xbel. This is GNOME's old logging system. The file should be located somewhere around ~/.local/share 2.) Thumbnails. Ubuntu stores thumbnails of images and other formats by default. These thumbs are located at ~/.local/share/thumbnails or ...

sudo apt-get install usbmount automatically mount and unmount USB mass storage devices This package automatically mounts USB mass storage devices (typically USB pens) when they are plugged in, and unmounts them when they are removed.

Firstly, ensure that you haven't mounted the USB stick in Ubuntu itself. Also, just in case, the latest version of VirtualBox is actually 4.3.14, which you might consider upgrading to. But more likely, if you only enabled USB 2.0 after having installed Windows, you might have to remove and re-add the USB controller from the Windows Device Manager, as it ...

You can run as a live USB, some applications even allow persistence so that you can keep files. It is always recommended to install to a HDD however as you will receive crucial security updates.

If the partition is NTFS or FAT, you'll have to mount it with the correct permissions for files to be executable. Use the lsblk command to identify your USB drive (let's call it /dev/sdb1). You can either mount it manually (I picked a folder called usbdrive, pick what you want): sudo umount /dev/sdb1 mkdir ~/usbdrive sudo mount -t vfat -o ...

Does Ubuntu store this data (in cache, or somewhere else) No. Besides what is in memory because of usage on that system (and not synched data) there are no other locations where this is stored. And the "in memory" is lost when saved to disk or when rebooted. Basically this is active when you have software open with one of your files. Come to think ...

Already had tried that and it didn't work. Also tried several other things including modifying the databases. As it turns out, a recent update fixed the problem - the thread on launchpad explains everything that has been happening to myself and others, and supposedly what the fix is/was.

if possible I always recommend a dvd live disk, as the read speeds on a usb vary and creating a working bootable one is a true pain. Try using a dvd if possible and see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't, try pressing tab as soon as you get the black/purple/whatever screen when it first boots and go down to "install ubuntu", that will boot straight ...

Ubuntu differentiates between filesystem builds (ISO formats) and displays the relevant icon. The standard USB icon is for generic removable media devices. The one with the purple usb stick is for UDF filesystems (Info here). The larger icon is for mass storage devices. You may come across any of these depending on the hardware specifications of the ...

Try using f10 instead of f12, there will be advanced options for your computer, in the advanced pane, you can change the boot order, or you can also sometimes press esc to change the boot order. Some computer start-up procedures are different so f10 may not work, that is why I listed the other possibilities.

You need to enter the BIOS setup and change your boot device order. Change your boot order so that PC boots from USB first. Then try using the LIVE USB.

This is a known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/usb-creator/+bug/1294877 There are several workarounds but the one that worked for me was to right click on the .iso in the file explorer and select 'Open With Disk Image Writer' and then 'restore' the ISO image to the selected USB device.

That is not a very good idea.. Once you install any version of Ubuntu or Xubuntu, it creates and manages the GRUB loader, which stores all the information about the booting point of both Windows and your current distro. If anything should go wrong, you might have to repair Windows for recovering the bootloader for Windows.
