Fast boot explained with an image: During fast boot the system loads the hiberfile and does not use the files on the filesystem. So the biggest problem, and the worst problem you can have on a computer, is data loss: if you create a shared NTFS data partition the hibernation may maintain the file structure so if you try to save a file from Linux into ...

Fast boot in Windows 8 is a way to boot the system faster because the needed data to boot (Drivers, User session, etc..) are stored in a hibernation file (hiberfile) and are loaded when the boot process begins, saving the user between 40% and more boot time. Since Hibernation mode is a way to "freeze" whatever you were doing before shutdown and loading it ...

Linux is not Windows, and we cannot guarantee that your programs will work at all (much less whether they will work without lag). You can try it with PlayOnLinux, CrossOver and/or Wine.

There are two types of "fast boot" options: In Windows -- This option, generally called Fast Startup, Hybrid Boot, or Hybrid Shutdown, turns a shutdown operation into a suspend-to-disk operation. As such, it leaves filesystems in an inconsistent state, which means that they will be, at best, ignored by Linux or other OSes. At worst, they'll be mounted and ...

Using the standard Windows disk partitioning tool to create partitions for Linux is risky at best. There are several problems with this tool, but the biggest for your scenario is that, when you create a layout that holds more than four partitions, it will convert the disk into one that uses the Logical Disk Manager (LDM, aka "dynamic disks"). At least, ...

Take the hard drive out of your laptop. This should allow you to get into the UEFI. If that does not work, the instructions (take from the VAIO User Guide) to get into the UEFI are as follows: Press the ASSIST button while your VAIO computer is off. The VAIO Care Rescue Mode screen appears. Select Start BIOS setup. Enter a password if it has already been ...

For the sake of completeness. 14.04 works on Hyper-V generation 2. Among other things kernel version 3.13 is required for generation 2. I am using it myself and it works nicely. You might want to set the screen resolution manually though, as mode setting in the usual way is not yet supported by the hyperv_fb kernel module. This can be archived by opening ...

In my experience that usually means a damaged virtual disk, but in your case it could also be settings related. I noticed your settings don't list anything under acceleration. It would also be helpful if you mentioned whether this was a pre-built machine, or if you installed Ubuntu yourself. Screenshot of VirtualBox 4.3.6 Default Unaltered Settings For ...

Apparently, OpenGL doesn't work on Windows 8 guests yet. I"ve installed Windows 7; according to GLView, my OpenGL version is 2.1 Chromium 1 now. The Corona SDK's Welcome Screen isn't getting rendered, though. I'll look into it, and if I need further assitance, I'll ask again.

Ok I found the answer. When running on windows client the first time you run juju bootstrap it creates an environments folder, which contains the .jenv file. What this means if you later change the .yaml file the changes may not be copied over into the .jenv file. So if having trouble you must delete the .jenv/environments folder after each change to the ...
