The nmap results were the biggest hint that the problem was not the network configuration with VirtualBox. The issue was with Tomcat. I opened the conf/server.xml file in my Tomcat home directory. Then I changed the line <Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443" ...

As of now, technology doesn't exist that can link two different motherboards hard drives. That cable that you bought was meant for file transfers, like .jars, .zips, etc. So with that cable, no you will not be able to link the hard drives, unless you tamper with it.

Now you can right click on the Ubuntu partition and choose resize/move here you can expand ...

Even though It's Willem said you can't you can. First, before I respond, I need to know: Do you have multiple hard drives, or at least 1 TB of space. If not, it would not be smart to follow through doing this. If you do... sudo apt-get install gparted Then open gparted in your search bar and create a new partition, leaving at least 500 GB for the ...

By default virtual machines are stored in your home folder, that is /home/larbi/ in VirtualBox VMs. Inside this folder you will find all your virtual machines.

This quesiton leaves a lot of room for opinion, but I'll lay out what I know. I run exclusively Linux for my host OS on all of my computers. I am required to run windows for certain testing situations. I have used VirtualMachines with Windows XP, Windows 7 (home-pro) and Windows 8 (Have not tried 10 yet). Ultimately how well An OS will perform in a VM will ...

The drivers should be included with the standard linux kernel and there should be nothing to install. Unlike windows, most drivers are included in the mainline kernel. You will notice you don't have to wait for "installing device drivers" every time you plug something into the USB port. That is not to say that you will never need to install any firmware ...

There is no Ubuntu touch for this device (that I could find). You should look at xubuntu as your CPU is weak, it comes with an on-screen keyboard, find it in Applications > Universal Access > Onboard Settings, so no worries there, on the log in screen you will see the accessibility icon ( a little man symbol) and can start the keyboard from there. ...

If you want to get GRUB working again, you could start a Ubuntu Live System (via a LiveUSB, DVD, etc) and run sudo update-grub to re-install the GRUB bootloader.

You need to update your grub loader information. It is missing the Windows entry in the grub menu. Go to a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T all at the same time. Then type in the following to update the grub menu: sudo update-grub when the update is completed, you should be able to reboot your system, and your grub menu should appear with Windows ...

This is a ten month old question but I figured I'd help anyway. It's actually a very simple fix. I'm throwing the fix in my answer instead of hitting "edit" on the above answer because I don't want to wait for peer reviewing or whatever. Anyway, the answer with the most votes states that you should use the following code: set root='(hd0,4)' `search ...

It seems I somehow did wipe out the Windows install. I eventually re-partitioned and reinstalled Windows. Now running 14.04 and Win 7, with Win 10 on the way. We will see how that upgrade goes.

Did you remove windows, or did you recently install updates? If so, you might just need to update the bootloader. Run this at the command line (assuming your GRUB install is in /boot/grub/): sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg If your grub install is somewhere else, try reinstalling GRUB: sudo grub-install /dev/sda (assuming your computer boots ...

Short answer: Yes. Short solution: After you upgrade, boot into Ubuntu (this will still work) and run this in Terminal: sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg That's assuming your GRUB installation is on you Ubuntu drive. If that doesn't work, then it's on your Windows drive, and you'll instead need to run this: sudo grub-install /dev/sda (replace ...

I don't know about Windows 10 but I updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 after I had dual booted Ubuntu 15.04 with Windows 8. When I had dual-booted, to configure the EFI partition for Windows, I had to run bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi from the Command Prompt in Windows. I had to repeat this step after I updated to Windows 8.1. But ...

After numerous attempts to solve this issue I finally resolved it with a few tips from various sources. First of all, I appreciate everyone's help in attempting to solve this issue.

I was able to resolve this. The key was focusing on my ~/.vnc/xstartup file. Instead of running Xsession, I now have it run fvwm and it's working well enough now.

When you re-installed windows, the grub files were deleted. You need to re-install grub. You can read it here: How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?) Please upvote my answer if it helped

You can try this: on the server: find the IP address. In windows machines, I think you can run ipconfig in a terminal --- see here. In Ubuntu, open Files, and then choose "Connect to server": input smb://you.ip.here./ --- if the server is configured to serve SMB shares and to list them, which are the default way of sharing in Windows, it should ask user ...

I think that it happened because the grub wasn't installed properly. If you still have the live cd or usb that you installed Ubuntu. You can try the following: 1- Put the live CD and choose the "Try Ubuntu" option. 2- Open a terminal and type fdisk -l 3- See the number of the partition that you've installed Ubuntu and mount it: $ sudo mount -t ext4 ...

You can try to use sudo update-grub to update the grub list... Another easy way to customize grub is installing the "Grub Customizer". It isn't supported by Ubuntu so you have to install a different repository: sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer sudo apt-get -y -q update sudo apt-get -y -q install grub-customizer It's a ...

i had a quick look at your report and it seems that you didn't delete all your data but what you had done with your drives, partitions and also filesystems seems a "little bit" chaotic...! i would advice you to use SuperGrub2Disk to boot into a maybe still present OS or use any Live-System, mount your drives, save your data on an external storage and ...

Depending on the windows installation options you choose, you might have blown the partition away, damaged, or formatted it. If you boot up with a live cd and run gparted and the linux partition is no longer there, and all you see is unallocated space; I'm sorry to tell you , but it sounds like it's gone.

According your Boot Info Summary => Windows 7/8/2012 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda. you have Windows bootloader installed into MBR, and grub installed into partition /dev/sda6. So your computer boots directly to Windows bootloader which knows nothing about your grub, linux and so on. You need to install grub directly to sda, not to partition ...

Thuderbird picks the mails from that. For details ...

You may just delete the Windows XP partition from the Windows 7 installer so it makes System Reserved. Then install Windows 7 in the freed space. After that you may use Boot-Repair CD to fix GRUB or EasyBCD to add Ubuntu to the Windows bootloader.

It will work just fine if you install Windows 7 over the XP install, just make sure to select the correct hard drive during installation. NOTE: You will need to run a grub reparation tool like boot-repair. EDIT: Here's the specific command you need to run to fix the bootloader: grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Because there can be different versions of grub in different version of Ubuntu, it is better to use the same Grub as in the original installation, in your case 12.04. You can get the 12.04 ISO image for your system by going here and burn it to a USB using tools such as UNetbootin. Once you have that you can follow the instructions in How can I repair grub? ...

Okay, I've solved my biggest problem for the most part... I eventually managed to boot back into Windows 7.

You should insert the Windows Install CD and fix the boot there. If there is Windows still present on your partition it will be better at finding and restoring Windows. After that, you can try again to install Ubuntu alongside it.

Don't panic! you were installing an application which it might was trying to update your grub and you just canceled it, that's it! by using this: sudo dd bs=512 count=1 if=/dev/sda 2>/dev/null | strings you can see the first 512 bytes of the device, result would be something like this: ZRr= `|f \|f1 GRUB Geom Hard Disk Read Error you can see the ...
